Pi (π) Day

It's March 14th (3.14) so math geeks all over the world are celebrating Pi (π) Day. Since I don't do traditional pie anymore as a gastric bypass post-op and my apple blueberry crumbs beat a slice of pie any day. I decided to celebrate Pi (π) Day with a Pi-zza for lunch.

In case you are wondering I am NOT a math geek. I cried my way through Statistics class. I got an A but literally I cried everyday. It's been several years but if you want to see me tear up just start saying words like standard deviation and binomial distribution. Sniff, Sniff.

Shelly's Red Onion Tortilla Pizza - Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size Tortilla topped with Marinara Sauce, a slice of Provolone, Sauteed Red Onion, Mozzarella Cheese and Italian Seasonings.

I just found this site via a friend and love the food I see on here. I was wondering do you post calories. I write down all my calories and carbs and fat and protein and sugars everyday. I want to try all of your recipes but freak out if I don't have numbers, lol. I guess I could calculate it all via the ingredients but was wondering if you already calculated them. Thanks so much. Great site too!!

Median and mode - just wanted to see if you'd cry! Okay, that was just "mean"!! Math makes me cry, too. That's why I teach 2nd grade instead of 5th or 6th. :)

Linnea, Welcome! Thanks. I'm glad you enjoy my blog. I started it just to keep my friends and family up to date on my journey so it's neat to me that others have found it.

I don't put the nut info on my recipes because... nutrition facts can vary so widely... on my plan I use full fat cheese, full fat mayo, butter, olive oil, others may use low fat cheese or horrors that non fat toxic waste, what percentage % fat of beef, etc. Plus serving size can vary what I eat as a almost 3 year post-op is a very different amount than a 3 month, 6 month, or 5 year post-op. The numbers would swing like a pendulum.

What I do when I need to find the nut info is go to fitday.com type in each individual ingredient, add those totals and divide by the # of servings I get from the dish.

Hope this helps,
~Michelle

Great blog! I learned of you from bariatrictv.com (BTV). I am scheduled to receive an AGB (band) on 3/25, so your recipes hold great interest for me once I return to "full food" mode.
Between you and BTV, I am ecstatic to be moving forward with a positive joy at the new lifestyle I am about to start on. Also, like you, I love to cook and I was beginning to worry about the "loss" of that recreational pastime. Thanks so much for your inspiration! Oh, yeah - you were beautiful before, but now you are spectacular!

Haahaaa.. I was a Statistics Analyst for waaaaaay too long. And I hate math.. and statistics. It was the worst fit of a job for anyone - at anytime in history.. LOL... Six Sigma.. Pareto.. Gantt.. Gaussian distro.. UCL.. LCL.. Bwaaaahaaa.. So glad I don't do that anymore. Sorry.. you brought it all back for me. I love your site.. as evidenced by our latest episode of BTV.. I have found many a recipe on your site to use for home and entertaining. Keep it up! I need variety.. :-) And it's obviously all about me!

LOL...

It's equally yummy to spray a pan with Pam and make them on the stove. I use the same tortillas you do but the burrito size cut in half. I realized after about the third time I made one that mine are just yours but on the stove. LOL
