I combined fruits and veggies for topping. I placed pizza, topping side down on piece of aluminum foil and baked on bottom rack of Nuwave Oven for 5 minutes. Removed, flipped over the pizza, added the fruit, and baked an additional 5 minutes.
I started with a frozen, bought pizza and added additional food of my choice to that. I love that I can start with frozen and have a great pizza in 10 minutes. Fast, easy, and healthy!

My Food Diary Blog Labor Day 2012
I didn’t have bar-b-que but I did have a great meal. Top photo shows completed meal and bottom photo shows baking the fish, potato cubes, and green beans in one pan—in a Nuwave Oven. The various things in this lunch can be cooked in a more conventional way, if desired. I just like the convenience of placing frozen fish and other ingredients into a pan and baking it all at once. It’s fast, easy, and healthy cooking.
I placed frozen fish and potato cubes in pan, seasoned (no salt), and baked 10 minutes. After that, I turned the fish and potatoes over, added green beans and onion slices. Baked all for 10 more minutes. Non-traditional Labor Day meal but it was just exactly what I wanted.
Have a happy day off and be safe.

Steak was frozen when I placed it in Rapid Air/Nuwave Oven. (Rapid Air is earlier version of Nuwave, I believe) I added potato pieces to the same container as the steak. Bake 10 minutes, turn everything over, add slices of bell pepper and onion. (see bottom photo) Bake 10 minutes more.
When done, I added salad to the plate with small amount of salad dressing.

I placed 1 small (FROZEN) steak in drip pan. Added sliced sweet potatoes and sliced onion. Baked in Nuwave Oven 10 minutes, turned all over and baked another 10 minutes.I did the rice in a rice cooker. The rice and the steak and potatoes all cooked about the same length of time. Meanwhile I prepared lettuce, tomato,and other salad ingredients. Served on a colorful plate. LOL I try to eat healthy AND try to make it as easy, simple, fast, and uncomplicated as possible. Yes, the steak was frozen when I started and no, I did not thaw it out first. Bottom photo shows food on drip pan in the Nuwave oven. I cook it all together.

I cooked peas, okra, and a couple of new potatoes in slow cooker (bottom photo).
Baked corn bread in toaster oven enough to “set” the bread. I finished in in the Nuwave Oven. The reason I didn’t do it from start to finish in the Nuwave is that it tends to blow the air and cause uneven top to baked things. Also, I had other items baking in the Nuwave so the use of the toast oven came in handy to start the bread.
I baked chicken breast, okra, and potatoes in the Nuwave Oven. Bake 10 minutes, turn items over, bake 10 minutes more.
After items were done, I added sliced tomato to the plate.

Used Nuwave Oven to bake frozen fish with veggies. I baked (fish and veggies are all in one pan) for 10 minutes, turn all over, continue to bake 10 minutes more. Wash lettuce, cucumber, and tomatoes. Tear lettuce, slice or cut cucumber and tomatoes. Toss. Serve.
I keep a food blog for health reasons, my choice. What I prepare is easy, fast, and healthy. Well, at least I am eating healthier. *May not be suitable for everyone.

I used torn lettuce leaves, chopped tomato, bellpepper, onion, radish, cucumber, and low fat Ranch dressing.
I also added photo of my “snack” last night. LOL Frozen Chocolate Yogurt and chopped Fresh Strawberries.

**Click on photo that is too small to read and that makes it large and you can then read the info under the photo.
I did not make photos of the rice, cabbage, and mousse making.
I put 1 cup rice with 2 cups water into rice cooker and allow that to cook while meat was cooking.
I have more than one rice cooker. I cooked purple cabbage in steamer rack, inside the rice cooker pot. Add water to rice pot to just below the steamer level. Cook as you would rice. You might like to check it after 10 minutes to test for desired crispness and cook accordingly.
Now, the mousse! LOL This was my first time to do a mousse this way, with powdered milk. I learned a couple of things that I want to try next time. Instead of putting water in mixer bowl and adding dry milk and then whipping with wire whip—I plan to add the non-fat dry milk to the water and make milk, keep in refrigerator until ready to use, then use regular attachment (not wire whip) that I would use to do a cake mix with. I tried using the “how to make powdered milk” recipe I found. I’m not saying the recipe was bad—apparently I just had to “test” this. I’ll let you know if it works a lot easier next time. That why I am not even giving recipe for this. I did add chocolate syrup to it. Believe it or not, it turned out ok enough for me to eat it and it looked pretty—but—after quite a frustrating series of trying to “fix” it. LOL Whew!
Any way, the meal did turn out good. I enjoyed it a lot.
Thank you for reading my blog about My Food Diary!
