Cauliflower Pizza

P-I-Z-Z-A....I want pizza! Everyone remember this Mary-Kate and Ashley song!? No?? Well its the theme song of my life!

I seriously could eat Pizza ALLLLL the time people! Like seriously all the time!! Unfortunately, they tell me its not 21 day fix approved and healthy for me! 

This is not my crust but exactly what mine looks like! I just didn't get a chance to take a picture of it! 

Luckily, Autumn from 21 day fix has formulated this delicious crust made from Cauliflower! It fits right into my green container AND I can have more than one piece and not feel bad about myself! I took Autumns recipe, that is awesome! You can find it here, and it made it more simple! 

So here ya go! 

Cauliflower Pizza Crust 
4-5 cups cauliflower rice or large cauliflower cut into florets 
Cheese Clothe (I use a kitchen towel) 
Dash of salt 
1 TBS Garlic Powder 
3-5 TBS of Italian Seasoning 
1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese 
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese 
1 Egg (2 if mixture is dry) 

1. Preheat oven to 350 
2. Place cauliflower rice in a blender and blend until smooth as can get (mashed potatoe consistency) 
3. Take blended cauliflower and place on cloth or towel. Dab out or twist and squeeze out excess water from mixture. Place cauliflower in a mixing bowl
4. Mix in salt, garlic powder, seasoning, both cheeses and egg. Mix well
5. Grease pizza pan or cookie sheet (whatever you are using). Pour mixture onto greased sheet and press until 1/4-1/2 inch thick. It may cover more and less of your pan every time depending on how much cauliflower was used. 
5. Bake crust for 40 minutes until golden brown
6. Take out of oven and place with pizza sauce and any topping. Put back in and back until cheese is melted 
7. Cut and enjoy!!

Choose Now

Happy Monday!! Getting back into the swing of things!! I feel like I have been so off ever since my trip to Florida!

Luckily some of that Florida sunshine made its way to Indiana and Kentucky this weekend!! I went on a last minute trip to visit C in KY this weekend! 2 months and 7 days to the big day!! I was feeling a little overwhelmed with wedding planning so we decided to take a weekend off and just hang out! 

Saturday we enjoyed the beautiful weather with a nice walk and motorcycle ride! Then we went to our FAVORITE restaurant in Louisville! Hammerheads! If you are ever in town, you HAVE to go! By no means is this a healthy meal! Fried mac and cheese balls (best I ever had), rack of lamb ribs, duck tacos, and fries fried in duck fat! 

The best is that I used to feel SO guilty after meals like this! I would beat myself up that I spent all this time working out during the week and would eat like a pig on the weekend! But I learned that cheat meals ARE necessary! You have to have them! And if you don't cheat the rest of the time, you feel guilt free! 

I stick to my meal plan M-F and allow myself 2 cheat meals a week! That's it! And you know what, its all I need! I truly earn those fries and mac and cheese balls! I eat them with no shame and then I woke up today for my 5 am workout and started off another week right! 

Nutrition is HARD, especially if you are a foodie like me! But I have learned some AWESOME tips and recipes, coupled with workouts, that has truly made my fitness journey successful! 

Right now I am offering a 2 week FREE trial of workouts and accountability groups coupled with meal plans and recipes! Seriously, no catch! I know some of you have wanted to pull the trigger and before you make the official investment, why not give it a try! Totally free and if you hate it, no worries, I will still love ya :)

Choosing to be Positive

How many of you wake up with a DREAD of Monday? I know I do! I don't always LOVE Monday!

I try really hard to think of the best way to view Monday! I try to recite these phrases and ideas as the alarm goes off at 5 am, but sometimes its hard! 

It's a fresh start 

You can re-do the things you failed at last week

You can set goals for what you want to accomplish 

Its a new week to make a difference 

Although I usually hit snooze a few times, I do try really hard to view Monday is a positive thing! It just puts me in a better move! 

I get it, life is HARD! There are SO many things to do, things going on, stresses, people, etc but you ultimately get to CHOOSE how you are going to take on the week! Will you take it by the horns? Or will you let the horns poke you in the behind!? 

Some days I get poked! But believe me, I do my best to CHOOSE to take it by the horns! Choosing positivity is contagious! It rubs off on people! It brings a smile to someones face! Someone out there needs a smile, needs to here a lift me up, needs to see you choosing to be positive! 

So how will you view this Monday!?
