I am a snacker. I have been my whole life. It’s just become habitual for me to always be munching on something – which is probably not the best. However, there is a way to snack without doing too much damage. In fact, snacking keeps your metabolism flowing and can be quite beneficial if you stick to healthy options. So I thought I’d share with you some of my (healthy) guilty pleasures.
I’ve been feeling rather posty lately, so I hope y’all like it. One of my family members is on a juicing diet, (which I wouldn’t recommend to anyone unless you have been medically advised to do so). However, it’s good for a snack/pick me up. I tried the juice that he’s been drinking and it is actually really good. It’s comprised of several vegetables and “superfoods.” Who knew vegetables could actually taste good? So I decided to share with you all a quick recipe for it. It’s great for a morning pick me up 🙂
I decided that today I’m going to post my first healthy food recipe. Even though I eat healthy most of the time I am still a foodie, and I still have my weaknesses when it comes to junk food. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a bread weakness. I love bread, and I have absolutely NO self control when it comes to portion control. (I actually ate a whole box of croissants the other day). Pitiful, I know. So being a bread lover, pizza is one of my favorite foods, but it is obviously not very nutritious. So the other day I was sitting around, moping a bit and thinking, “why can’t pizza be healthy?” After doing some internet searching and watching a few YouTube tutorials I figured out how to make pizza from cauliflower. Yes I said cauliflower. The cauliflower serves as the dough in the pizza, so you get to cut out that carb-loaded bread that I love oh so much. I know, that sounds nasty and completely unappealing. But I promise y’all that I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was! Cauliflower is basically a superfood so you reap a lot of benefits by incorporating it into your diet. It is a good source of protein, provides detoxification support to your body, and is even proven to contain a compound that kills cancer stem cells. I am a very picky eater myself, so I promise I wouldn’t recommend you anything I don’t think y’all would like too. After trying and incorporating several different sources recipes, here’s my recipe for cauliflower pizza. I think it came out pretty well.
