I had the most perfect pizza for dinner last night. It was Glutino Spinach & Feta pizza. I found it at Safeway. It was $4.99, which I thought was a bit expensive for such a small size, but the taste made up for it. I baked it on a rack in my toaster oven for 16 minutes. It was light golden brown and very crispy. It did satisfy my craving for pizza without making me feel too full or bloated. I know Glutino makes other varieties as well. Give them a try, you may be pleasantly surprised!

Sweet Potato Chicken Burger

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Refrigerate: 2-3 hours


  • 1 pound skinless, organic bone-in chicken
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon green chilies chopped fine

  1. Add water to two saucepans, and bring both to a boil. Place chicken in one, sweet potatoes in the other.
  2. Remove from heat when chicken is done (about 15-20 minutes) and sweet potatoes are done (about 10-12 minutes)
  3. Once cooled, shred the boiled chicken into small pieces. Mash the potato. Mix together in a bowl.
  4. Add in cilantro, chilies, and spices
  5. Form 2-inch, round patties
  6. Leave in fridge to firm (ideally 2-3 hours, but I was impatient and waited 30 minutes)
  7. Remove from fridge, then dip each side in the egg mixture (just one egg beaten)
  8. In a separate bowl, coat each cutlet in flour
  9. Place on a cookie sheet on top of parchment paper. Allow it to freeze.
  10. When you’re ready to eat, simply take one out and pan-fry it with some ghee or coconut oil.
