Growing up in “almost gluten-free” home made pasta a big deal. Tortellini, spaghetti, ravioli, and even good ‘ole macaroni and cheese were special treats. This being the case, I may or may not have frequent cravings for pasta.
I don’t believe in depriving Continue reading »

A few times a week I make myself a mini “pizza” made from a low carb tortilla. I put on a little organic tomato sauce, some protein, and veggies and bake it in the toaster oven. It’s perfect for those days where a Continue reading »

I’ve been challenging myself to upping my healthy eating, and decreasing my sugar (or my cheats) drastically. Sunday is usually the day where I allow myself more wiggle room, but for a season I’ve decided to tighten my game a little…and for me that’s sticking to the low carb, no sugar lifestyle Continue reading »

Picture this. You’ve had the worst night with your baby. Your mascara is half on your lashes and the rest has settled on the already dark bags under your eyes. The bed has never felt so soft and you never want to leave…but you know should make breakfast.
Then, like magic, someone has entered the room with a breakfast tray with your Continue reading »

This recipe is for my fellow “hobbit” friends. And when I say hobbit, I don’t imply that I’m short and only think short people should eat this. Or that you have hairy feet.
These mini pizzas feature the most esteemed Portabella mushroom…and hobbits love mushrooms.
It’s a great way to stack up your veggie intake and get in more B vitamins and minerals into your day. Plus, one mushroom cap is like 35 calories! Serves 2.
- 4 Portabella mushroom caps
- Organic tomato sauce
- Organic spinach
- Chicken breast (or any other meat)
- Grated cheese
Take the stems out of the mushrooms and gently scrape some of the inside of the mushroom out…so you have room to load your “pizza shell” with goodness.
Top with light pesto and tomato sauce, load with whatever veggies you like…protein and cheese…you get the idea. Bake for about 10-12 minutes at 450 degrees.
This recipe is a basic framework, but essentially you can do whatever you like. Vegetarian? Skip the meat? Vegan? Use a dairy-free cheese.
Tried Portabella mushrooms before? What do you use them for?

The secret to indulging my “I want pasta” mood…is the most honoured spaghetti squash. It’s the most magical vegetable in my universe. It also needs to be smothered in cheese. Because.
And no, I don’t need a real reason. Cheese doesn’t need a reason. Ever Continue reading »
