You could lower calories even more on that pizza by using light mozzarella, and even by finding reduced sugar barbecue sauce...I use one made with Splenda. Yum!
My dinners for the week:
Monday: Sausage, lentil, and veggie soup - brown chicken sausage in soup pot sprayed with cooking spray (I rinse and drain the fat, but that's optional), add in a chopped onion and two cloves of garlic, and cook until soft. Add in 6 cups of chicken broth. Bring to a boil, add one cup raw lentils, and cover. Simmer 20-30 minutes. Add: 3 diced carrots, 4 diced stalks celery, 3 diced zucchini. Cover again and simmer 25 minutes, or until vegetables and lentils are cooked.
Tuesday: Giant salad: Grilled chicken, grilled bell pepper, grilled zucchini, grilled red onion, plus broccoli, carrot, sugar peas, a laughing cow wedge, and crispy baked wonton strips
Wednesday: Spaghetti bulked out w/ bell pepper, zucchini, and red onion, with meatballs and marinara sauce.
Thursday: Ginger-Soy Marinated Chicken Skewers with Multigrain Pilaf (it has couscous, baby garbanzo beans, lentils...it's really good!), grilled zucchini
Friday: Fresh roast turkey breast w/ lemon and garlic, roasted potato wedges, and brussels sprouts glazed with a bit of balsamic vinegar
All my dinners are planned for this week too (I always plan next week's meals on Friday since I go the the farmers' market and grocery stores on Saturday).
This week the farmers' market had fresh figs. I love love love fresh figs. So last night we had Chicken with Figs, Fennel, and Bacon and we're having the leftovers again tonight. The fennel I had growing in the backyard turned out to be too tough, so I subbed celery and yellow bell pepper for the fennel.
This is what I am on track to make the rest of the week:
Tonight is soy sausage, kale, and white bean soup.
Tomorrow, mini tofu quiches with broccoli and roasted red potatoes.
Thursday, BBQ lentil burgers and fresh corn on the cob.
Friday, chickpea cutlets, sauteed yellow squash, and quinoa pilaf.
The weekend is a toss-up because we are moving Saturday and Sunday... we may just have to feast on boca burgers and baked fries

I've been ordering from a local delivery service souppeddler.com. They do soups and some non-soup dishes. They dont provide nuritional info so I just look at the ingredients list and watch my portions.
Today I had squash casserole and then a barley/kale combination with miso. I added a small salad of tomatoes and baby sweet bell peppers.
It was awesome and I felt good that i got veggies in that i otherwise might not have bothered eating.
Tomorrow is corn and chicken chowder which i will spike with fresh spinach. Yum!
