Thank God it’s Friday!
Kashi, almond milk, bananas, and peanut butter. This was my first time eating cereal with fruit and nut butter, and it kept me full so much longer than a plain bowl of cereal. I have six containers of almond milk to get through, so I have a feeling I’m going to be eating a lot of cereal. 🙂
I was going to take a rest day today, but since my sister needed the car, she dropped me off at work and I ran home. This is only possible due to the fact that I can get away with wearing running clothes to my job! It’s just over 3 miles, and I was actually going to run a bit longer, but I really wanted lunch instead.
I scrambled some egg whites and stuffed them in a pita with spinach.
Tofu mousse was consumed in lieu of yogurt (I’m out!)
As well as an apple with peanut butter. I need to start using my peanut flour more sparingly until I stock up!
Since I had the night off, I thought it would be a perfect night to cook for my family- one of my February goals. I emailed everyone to see what they wanted, and pizza was the consensus.
I googled some recipes, and came across Bobby Flay’s grilled shrimp and cilantro pesto pizza. I decided to go the Sandra Lee route and make it ‘semi-homemade.’ 🙂 Note- This is probably the only non-vegetarian recipe you will see on here!
Shrimp and Pesto Pizza
- 1 pizza crust (I used store bought, but homemade would be even better!)
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1/3-1/2 cup pesto
- 3/4 cup frozen, pre-cooked shrimp
- 1 cup feta cheese
- Olive oil, as needed
- Toppings as desired (I used black olives)
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Brush the pizza crust with olive oil and spread parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 5-6 minutes. Remove from oven.
- While the crust is cooking, coat shrimp with olive oil. Heat a skillet and sautee the shrimp until browned.
- Top the pizza crust with pesto…
- Put back in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Broil until golden.
Verdict? The family loved it 🙂
The reason I decided to make a non-vegetarian pizza was because I knew I wouldn’t be eating it. I feel really weird after eating cheese lately, and I am sadly going to cut it out of my diet for a week or so and see if that makes me feel better. So sad!
Instead, I had some tabbouleh (recipe soon!) with tofu and kabocha, as well as some grapes and carrots.
Since I couldn’t have one of my favorite foods, I consoled myself with ice cream. 🙂
