I have all the respect for any woman that can just get dropped off into a remote jungle, go bare naked (with maybe not the best figure) and then spend three weeks with a complete stranger, eating termites and making her own bikini out of palm leaves, (all while being filmed on national television and on the internet) - yes, that is a very brave woman. The best part of all, is they are losing anywhere from 25 - 40 pounds in just three weeks!! That's the kind of results I would love to have...and they come out of the competition completely tan - it's like an instant makeover!!
Here is our question though....if the man and woman are naked, fending for their own food, shelter and making fires from dried grass and a stick...what are the camera crew, medics and producers doing at the same time? Are they across a stream living it up in a 10-person Coleman camping adventure tent with built-in shower and a bonfire and grilling up some ribeye steaks?
Or, is the whole thing really filmed in some Burbank, California studios backlot? Hmmm......
Well at any rate, I'm sure eating this pizza schmeared with herbed cream cheese spread will not help my diet cause, but it sure tastes amazing.
|My go to kitchen staple that is always in the refrigerator.|
I always start with one of the Alouette flavors and build it from there with different veggies, cheeses and toppings.
Served it with a figure friendly minestrone soup to keep it light.

(1) Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust (unbaked) and brought to room temperature
3 ounces (1/2 of container) of Alouette cheese spread
4 ounces of button mushrooms, cleaned and thinly sliced
3 ounces of prepared black olive tapenade
4 Tbl. finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll out pie crust on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Spread Alouette cheese all over pie crust. Fold over edges of pie crust (about 1/2" all around) to frame the crust.
Spread tapenade over cheese spread, add mushrooms and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake approximately 30-40 minutes or until pie crust edges are golden brown and cheeses have melted.
