I feel proud of myself every time I choose fresh veggies over donuts (....mmm donuts).
Changing your diet takes lots of creativity as well as will power.
If you are anything like me you start to try new flavor combinations to switch things up. I am all about convenience which has led me to many a drive thru. This time I wanted to make sure I had enough healthy "Convenience" foods that I could push past those cravings.
In the morning I have been loving my smoothies.
I use a whole banana, a cup of Almond Coconut Milk, a tablespoon of almond butter pictured here, a scoop of protein powder and ice.
I usually sip on that through until lunch.
Lunch is usually chicken and a veggie.
I have an afternoon snack which is usually a Larabar or veggies and humus.
Dinner I switch it up. It depends what my family is having and how much time we have.
These past three weeks I have found some products at our local grocery store that I wouldn't normally try but decided to give it a go.
Gluten Free Brownie Mix
So so good. I also made it dairy free by replacing the butter with coconut butter. Seriously I fed it to unsuspecting victims and no one even knew.
I always sing the praises of these but I can't speak of them enough. I always have one with me.
Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust. (This is also dairy free).
Using this I made my new favorite pizza.
Make the crust and split into two. Each will make a 12'' pizza.
Slice fresh bell peppers (I used orange, red, and green.)
Slice onion and black olives.
Cook crust according to directions
When done spread 1/2 cup tomato sauce and top with veggies.
Here's the kicker.... on top put balsamic vinaigrette.
Bake for 15 more minutes.
For a 12'' pizza 1/4 is a serving and it's about 355 calories give or take.
I didn't miss the cheese and the crust was different but really good. Seriously Try it.
Alright everyone. I hope we have lots of link ups and remember it doesn't have to be a full recipe it can just be a product you love that's healthy and easy!
