Last week was rough. I worked 4 shifts at each job AND had the last 3 of my wisdom teeth pulled. Needless to say, I didn’t have time to cook before the extraction and I couldn’t eat real food for a few days after. (Ok, I tried rice, tofu and veggies on Saturday, tofu and rice were easy, veggies not so much. Oh, and I had cheesecake, cause it’s soft).

So, clearly I’ve been itching to cook something. I had been thinking about a quiona pizza crust for a while. I had originally wanted to top it with graffiti eggplant, but it went bad before I could use it. So instead I took the last of my parents broccoli, made a sauce of that, and topped it with mushrooms and bell pepper. I was really pleased with the result. (I made it for tomorrow, but I had to test it tonight, duh)

This recipe is actually very easy, there is some downtime but it doesn’t really effect you at all. Everything in this recipe is very good for you, and full of fiber. It should fill you up for a decent amount of time.

Not only did I not have time to cook last week, I didn’t have time practice my yoga last week. I missed it quite a bit. I was finally able to start again yesterday and I am so glad. I felt my life was slightly miss balanced. Yoga brought me balance. Find a way to find your own balance.
