The MOST Delicious Vegan Mozzarella Pizza From never Scratch

K never ordering pizza ever again because nothing will top this pizza that we made for lunch today (except maybe a pizza from Italy, they probs have me beat).

I came to realize that I was stressing myself out trying to eat too healthy all the time, so this year this girl is gonna treat herself when she wants to. AND I just got a fantastic new job so today we had to celly, obviously. And this really isn’t even too bad for you if ya think about it because I made the dough from scratch so I knew exactly what was going into my body. Boom.

All the dough has in it is organic unbleached flour, yeast, EVOO, water, and and then we topped this beautiful babe with tomato sauce, tomatoes, portobello mushrooms, For The Love of Cheese dairy free plant based buffalo motzahrella (SO GOOD), arugula, and a little bit of fresh grated parmesan. Then we baked it in a cast iron skillet at 550 F for about 15 minutes and then bam: heaven on the tastebuds!

Happy Sunday my loves!

Paleo Cassava Flour Bread

For those of you who don’t know what cassava flour is, it’s basically the best thing of all time. It’s paleo, nut-free, grain-free, gluten-free, anti-inflammatory, and can be subbed 1:1 for regular wheat flour.

Okay. AMAZING.

So I’ve been very much enjoying experimenting with cassava flour recipes and it dawned on me this morning that I hadn’t even tried making bread with it yet?! What’s wrong with me! I really miss bread in my diet but I don’t miss how achy and gross it made me feel sooooo if I could have bread without the aches and pains, this could be life changing.

So since bread can be pretty tricky, I decided not to go out and waste a bunch of flour trying to make my own recipe from scratch right off the bat. Insteaddddd, I found this amazing recipe on Paleo Hacks and it came out PERFECT!!!!!!!

So no this isn’t my recipe, but bless you Jennafer Ashley for blessing us with your beautiful bread. You can get her recipe by clicking rightttttttt here.

Have a great Tuesday everybody!!


DF and GF Peanut Butter and Banana Chunk Pancakes

Today my morning consisted of a sprint workout, weights, yoga, laundry, and cleaning my entire apartment top to bottom SO yes I made the most massive breakfast of all time and YES I’m gonna eat every last bite cuz ya girl deserves it.

Breakfast is what motivates me to get through my morning every day (since I don’t eat until noon usually, check out my post on intermittent fasting for more deets on that) so this morning to treat myself I made scrambled eggs with avocado, sliced strawberries, and peanut butter banana oat pancakes. Breakfast. Of. Freakin. Champs. And it did not disappoint.

These pancakes, more specifically, were the actual bomb. I might make them again for dinner because yeah, I deserve breakfast for dinner too! Anyways, they’re tasty, filling, good for ya, and dairy, gluten, and refined sugar free so it doesn’t get much better than that!!

Happy Tuesday my peeps!
