Junk Food Done Right

My fingers are going to be crossed the whole time I write this… my internet has been PATHETIC all night, so I hope I get this up!

I did a produce shop today and had a Gala apple when I came back.


I wasn’t really in the mood for the gym today (although, once again, I was already in my workout clothes and had my bag pack! I’m so silly), so I did a Yoga Download instead.  I thought I was doing one of the 50 minute classes, but none of the moves were matching up with the ones on the chart.  Turns out I was doing Detox Flow #1 instead, which I love, but would rather have had a longer session! Oh well.

I did a lot of cooking tonight, during which I enjoyed a small gin & diet tonic with lime juice. I don’t have class on Fridays, so it’s the weekend for me!


In addition to making dinner for tomorrow (it’s steeping in its juices overnight) I made something I’ve been craving for so long: pizza. When I was at Whole Foods today, I bought a big ball of their multi-grain pizza dough.

I divided the ball in half, hand-tossed it pizzaman-style, and brushed the dough with olive oil and minced garlic. I baked it at 475˚ for about 10 minutes, then  added my toppings: spinach, a sliced tomato, sliced onion, half of a pre-cooked sweet potato, sliced mushrooms, and crumbled goat cheese. I drizzled some more of the olive oil/garlic combo on top, and popped it back in the oven for about 10 more minutes until the crust was crispy.


I had two slices, which I topped with salt, pepper and chili flakes.


And, of course, I went back for one more slice. Too good!

For dessert, I had a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich with almond butter smeared on top. Combination made in HEAVEN… don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it before!


Well, I’ve got to finish a book before I let myself go to sleep. Have a nice night!
