October 30 - chickpea flour pizza, shopping and workout incentive
|Happy Halloween I saw an article that avocado was the new pumpkin so I had to try|
On friday evening I wanted a pizza. I never order delivery and it was to late for me to go out. I also don't keep regular flour in my house. I knew I had sauce and cheese and chickpea flour. I usually make chickpea flour pancakes but I wondered if I could make a pizza crust out of it. It actually worked pretty well I cook pizza in a frying pan as I don't use my oven and I find that the pan makes it easy to cook the crust and melt the cheese.
|I poured the flour in the bowl|
|I added olive oil, salt, pepper, water wishing i had dried herbs|
I would have let the dough sit but it was after work on and i was hungry so I only let it sit while the pan was getting hot. I put some ghee in the pan and then tried to spread the dough out in the pan it was hot so I couldn't take a picture. It would have been bette if i had rolled the dough out before putting it in the hot pan. I let the dough cook for a few minutes. Oops it was too hot but not quite burnt still tasted pretty good.
I added some sauce and cheese covered and let it cook for another 5 minutes. I poured the rest of the sauce in my pressure cooker added some pasta and water and 15 minutes later i had a delicious pasta ready as well.
|the pizza satisfied my craving for the night|
A l'occitane store just opened up by my house so the grand opening day had an extra 15% off and a free gift with purchase over $50. I can't resist a good deal like that even thought I only stocked up a few weeks ago. I did get the last of the advent calendars so there is 24 days of l'occitane surprises. I do beachbody on demand workouts and although I am a huge fan after I press play I always find it hard to motivate myself to get up and hit the play button on a daily basis. I decided to commit to the 3 week yoga retreat program it is a lot harder than it sounds. There are a lot of planks in yoga but I think it will be a good program for me to try. Everyday after the workout I am going to open a day of the calendar. I have done two workouts so far so I got a hand cream on day 1 and a body lotion on day 2. I have to do the workout to get my surprise of the day hopefully that will keep me motivated for the next three weeks.
