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?

I’ve been looking for a low calorie, low sugar granola. Turns out those are hard to find.
You know what they say, if you want something done right you need to do it yourself.
Well, ok…maybe that’s not entirely true. I did find one brand that I loved, but it was a bit pricey for me to buy regularly. I decided to make it myself. Turns out it was ridiculously easy.
No baking. No crazy ingredients.
Just stirring all that superfood goodness.
Chia Superfood Granola
- 1/2 cup organic buckwheat grouts
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup hemp hearts
Nutritional Info (per 2 tbsp): Calories: 70, Fat: 3.5g, Carbs: 8g, Fibre: 2.5g, Protein: 3g
Is it ridiculous to just say that the instructions are…like…just mix.
Well, that was hard.
So to eat this divine bunch of love…you take 2 tbsp. of cereal and mix it with about 1/2 cup of almond milk and let it sit a couple minutes.
Sounds meager, but the chia seeds expand and make it into a delicious, wholesome breakfast. And you can always have second helpings!
Chia seed fan, yay or nay?

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 »

It’s high time we have another spirulina recipe again.
Those of you have who followed my blog for a while will know that this green stuff rocks my little world. Why is that, you say…
Well, here are some reasons it’s good for you, but I noticed a huge difference with my hormonal imbalances, energy, and even my skin! Really, I also just like it because it’s a fabulous mufti-vitamin loaded with minerals/antioxidants and I feel like it just covers me in the robe of nutritious righteousness. My favourite brand in the entire world is from Nutrex Hawaii…just thought you should know that. You can also now go buy it…because you will Love. How. It. Makes. You. Feel.
Anyway, I tried something new and decided you should try it.
Guacamole just got holy.
Well, not really…I just said that because it rhymed…but it definitely becomes like an extra, extra, extra superfood. Angelic really.
- 1 avocado
- 1 Roma tomato, chopped
- 1 large handful cilantro, chopped
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1-2 tbsp. spirulina*
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
*Depending on how much you “like” the taste of spirulina
Mash the avocado and then mix everything together. Done. The end.
So while you can have this with crackers of flax chips…I really just like eating it with leaves of Romaine lettuce. The. Best.
