I Can Have PIZZA!
Believe me when I say this is NOT going to become a food blog. I do not have the patience to write down ingredients, measurements, blah, blah, blah. However, I do have to say that I am so impressed with my actual ability to make something healthy and yummy to eat & it makes me giddy.
I know. It doesn't take much.
I found this little tip online from another clean eater: make mini-pizzas out of the whole grain thin bread rounds. We already love a certain brand of these whole grain babies so I smeared on tomato basil Laughing Cow cheese triangles, organic marinara sauce, thinly sliced squash, zucchini, and mushrooms. Then I tossed on some garlic & onion powder and a new Italian seasoning that I freshly ground (I love those McCormick fresh grinders! I feel like I should be in the food network when I twist them!). I drizzled some light olive oil and a few sun-dried tomatoes along with pulling apart low-fat mozzarella string cheese and put them in a preheated 450 degree oven for about 9 minutes and they were so stinkin' great!
I know I am so slow in realizing this, but it feels good to cook and eat food that truly is healthy and tastes fabulous. I DON'T HAVE TO EAT OVER-PROCESSED CRAP. (that was note to self, by the way)
We'll see what will be the next new thing for me to conjure up.
