Grilled Naan Pizza

Happy Monday.  It was off to a good start with a small bite to eat before a three-mile run:

After my hot run, I cooled off with a yummy smoothie:

For this smoothie I used about a cup of spinach, half a frozen banana, 3 frozen strawberries, frozen mangoes, and frozen blueberries, flax seed, with a little apple juice.  You can’t even taste the spinach, trust me.  Try it!

It was a great day hanging out with my momma.  We chilled in the hot tub for a while, and then went to the grocery store to pick up a couple of things for dinner.

Lunch was cold quinoa with butter beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, garlic, parsley, lime juice and olive oil.  Basically leftovers all mixed up into a cold salad.

Then later, mom and I whipped up a little snack of hummus with pita chips, and cantaloupe.

For dinner, we had a genius idea of using whole wheat naan bread for pizza crust and putting it on the grill.  After a sacrificial burnt pizza, they turned out really good.  The key is to heat the grill, then turn the flames off.

My pizza had tomatoes, mushrooms, banana peppers, artichoke hearts, basil, and mozzerella cheese.  We also had a salad:

Now it’s off to spend the evening with my mom.  Good night all!

From meatballs to meat free!

Last night, I laid in bed with a belly still full of meatballs from lunch, reading a book my friend Jean lent me.  The book is “Skinny Bitch“.  As the tears went rolling down my face, I kissed my meat-eating days goodbye.  Never before has a book had such a strong impact on me.  There were parts I couldn’t even read.  Great book nevertheless.

Then off to work to set up a beautiful wedding for a sweetheart of a bride.

Lunch was a tomato sandwich and carrots with hummus.

Dinner presented a challenge, as I had not planned to become a vegetarian.  My husband decided to grill up some sausage and chicken, so I was in charge of the veggies, aka my dinner.

Hubby grilled some zucchini, squash, onions, mushrooms, potatoes, and green peppers, and I served it over quinoa.  A side of big ol butter beans with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and parsley with a squeeze of lime juice and a little olive oil.  Very good meal, didn’t miss the meat at all.

Anybody read the book?  I’d love to hear your thoughts on it?
