The perfect quick weeknight dinner!

Well today was just lovely.
It was my day off from the gym (I have 6 days on, one day off a week).
I got to spend alllll evening with Max (my boyfriend/roomate), which was wonderful as I have been so busy lately I barely get to see him even though we live together!

As it is near the end of the week, and I am going away from the weekend, I decided to skip the groceries and throw something together from whatever I had leftover. The result? a GENIUS pizza!

What's even better? It is completely healthy. This  is good news as I had a work lunch at Moxies today. I ordered the mango chicken breast with roasted vegetables, which seemed healthy, but you never know how they cook that stuff! Could have been drenched in loads of butter for all I know :S

Just look at this masterpiece:

Roasted Eggplant and Spinach Flatbread Pizza


  • 4 slices Eggplant
  • 1 small shallot, diced
  • 1 bunch Spinach, chopped
  • 1 Tsp Olive Oil
  • 5 or 6 Cherry Tomatoes, halved
  • 2 Tbsp tomato sauce (I used my homemade roasted garlic and basil sauce)
  • 1 Small amount of Crumbled Goat Cheese
  • 1 whole wheat Pita Bread or Flatbread (I used a high protein/low fat whole wheat pita)

Preheat oven to 450 Degrees.
In a medium-high skillet, fry the eggplant slices and shallot in olive oil until slightly browned.
Spread the tomato sauce on the flatbread, folllowed by the eggplant, shallots, and tomatoes. Top with the spinach and the goat cheese. Put in the oven for about 5 or 6 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!
