Soooo, this weekend, I incorporated a couple of not so paleo things into my diet. First, friday night I wanted pizza in a baaaaaad way! So, I found a recipe for the infamous cauliflower pizza crust that had a bit of cheese in it…so of course I added cheese to my pizza as well. It was DELICIOUS, a taste spectacular even! I think I actually prefer it over its doughy counterpart! Well the next morning, I had leftover ,prepared, crust ingredients, so I made a breakfast pizza, which was also fantabulous!!!
Now, I know there is a lot of debate about whether cheese is paleo or not, but in my opinion, paleo or not, its definitely one of those things that I have portion control issues with…..i really heart cheese….. So, I will allow transgressions such as these here and there but cheese cannot be a regular feature in my diet.
My real sin came saturday (there’s that waterfall effect I was talking about). I went to a friends house, who happens to be a world famous baker (well, not really, but she should be…and lucky me, I actually have two friends who fall in this category). Anywho, she had made a really yummy, gluten-free, vanilla, cake with REAL ,homemade, buttercream frosting, that I literally just wanted to bathe in (don’t you judge me!). So I had…some.
I am not riddled with guilt over my decisions. I enjoyed them at time of consumption, and I will enjoy them again one day. But today, I am back in action. And I’m happy about it. I really love eating paleo and I love how eating paleo make me feel.
And just for giggles, im totally giving you the pizza recipe, just in case you are a cheese-eating paleo-er.
Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees
1c steamed, riced, cauliflower
1c. Shredded (not grated) parmesean
1/2 tbsp each of garlic powder, basil, and oregano
Mix all ingredients well. Grease a baking sheet with coconut oil. Spread crust mix out fairly thin on to baking sheet. Then bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown all over. Pull it out and let it cool down while u prep toppings.
Once you add your toppings, place pizza under broiler just until toppings are brown, and or cheese has melted!
For my breakfast pizza I chopped up a fried egg, and 2 slices of bacon. I used pesto as my base, and topped it with cheddar.
Later, i’ll share last nights supper recipe. Artichoke Chicken Bake a la Mark Sisson!
