My pizza obsession

My pizza obsession

My obsession continues! 

Not to long ago I gave you the recipe for the Cauliflower base pizza, then I put my normal pizza base recipe on your radars.

Nooooooow……..guess what??!! More pizza

Check out this recipe, it’s by Natasha Corrett, she’s just brought out a recipe book called Honeslty Healthy Cleanse. All the recipes are high in alkaline to help cleanse and nourish your sexy body!

Also, you know my obsession with chia seeds. Best of both worlds if you ask me!

Almond pizza base 

2 tbsp sunflower oil

15g ground chia (I used the whole seeds)

60ml water

100g ground almonds

1/4 tsp of ground cumin

1 pinch of Himalayan pink salt (or maldon)

Freshly ground black pepper

And a pizza/tomato sauce topping

Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking parchment and brush lightly with oil (coconut oil)

Put the chia seeds in a small bowl, add the water and set aside to soak for 10 minutes. (They become like a gloopy gel)

Meanwhile, mix the ground almonds and seasonings in a bowl and add the soaked chia. Mix all the ingredients together with your hands until a “dough” forms.

Place the ball of dough in the middle of the baking tray and flatten it with your hands until it’s an even circle about 5mm thick.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the surface starts to colour.

Take base out of the oven and keep on the baking tray. Spoon on the pizza sauce and add toppings.

Remember to keep it light as it’s not a normal pizza base


Breakfast! What’s that??

Breakfast! What’s that??

I have never been one to rush to the breakfast table in the morning! 

My mother always made sure that we had our favorite cereals out, with a whole lots of extras, yet I couldn’t seem to get out of bed with major enthusiasm. Maybe the thought of sleeping for an extra ten minutes was more appealing! 

As an adult, I’ve come to realize how important it is to actually eat breakfast! All those “it’s helps your metabolism” and “it’s healthy for you”, are actually true!!! (Who knew right?) 

There is something ridiculously comforting about a warm bowl of oats, also the lushness of a soft poached egg on rye. If I’m having a manic morning, there are always hard boiled eggs in my fridge for a little protein fix! (No flex zone) 💪💪 

There are also so many blogs and websites that can give you tips on how to bring out your creative breakfast genius, so go and do some browsing and eat your porridge! Ha! 

The bowl in the picture is filled with warm oats, flaked almonds, chia seeds, raw cacao nibs and cranberries!!
