All About the Toppings

W


hen it comes to toppings, I like to load 'em on.

Take for instance my oatmeal this morning:



Banana oats (made with 1 cup almond breeze, 1/2 mashed banana, 1/2 cup quick oats):
- 1 T chia sees
- 1 T coconut
- 1 T maple flakes
- 1 T apple butter
- 1 t walnuts

For lunch I topped the leftover tortellini (what I didn't use in the soup yesterday) with some tomato sauce:



I also had an orange and some cheese:





After work I went for a pint, and also shared some calamari with friends.

Dinner tonight was a pita pizza - loaded up of course!! I topped 1 whole wheat pita with:

- Green Pepper
- Onion
- Tomato
- Pineapple
- Green Olives
- Cheese



I then baked it for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.







Perfect pita pizza every time.

And it is official - I am addicted to juicing. I can't stop.

This evening I juiced:
- 2 cups honeydew
- 1 large pear
- 1 1/2 green peppers
- 1 grapefruit



Refreshing!



There is something about drinking all those nutrients down - I swear I can feel them seeping into my blood. I like to think about it while I drink it.

Hehe.

TGTIF (Thank Goodness Tomorrow is Friday)

Any big plans for the weekend?

Really? Seeping into your blood? Love it! How was that juice? Would you drink it again?

I love toppings- they are the best part of every meal!

My roommate has been looking for a pita pizza bread recipe. I'll have to refer him to yours.

No big plans this weekend, aside from perhaps moving back to my parent's house because the company I work for is going bankrupt. le sigh.

Mmm...Ooh la la....When it comes to oatmeal, I just prefer the oats themselves. But when it comes to the pizza, I like my crust as invisible as possible, and pile on the toppings, please!
