All About the Toppings


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


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.


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!
