It’s 9:00 pm and I am finally blogging! This day has been crazy with work, studies, and just trying to enjoy the fact that it is friday. I started my morning off right with a bowl of cereal a mix of my [Me]&Goji (goji oats, goji bears, golden berries, pistachios, coconut, cacao nibs, and chia seeds)and Uncle Sam’s with hemp milk and mug of sencha tea.
I also tried out some new products before I headed to work that Auromere sent me to sample. I have been on the look for a new natural toothpaste and was delighted to find a tube and a few sample sizes in my package. The toothpaste is licorice and although the flavor wasn’t my favorite for toothpaste I felt that it did a good job cleaning.
After a crazy day at work and staying 2 hours later than I had intended I came out and cooked- the only thing that chills me out after a busy day. I decided to make some skinny pizzas on these new flatbreads that I found at the market yesterday. I topped them with a tablespoon of spicy peanut hummus, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed napa cabbage, sauteed zucchini and onions and a little thai basil. After baking if for a 10 minutes I topped it with a spicy hoisin drizzle and a mix of chopped green onions, cilantro and thai basil.
See that pretty beverage next to my skinny pizza it’s a wonderful skinny mojito- now when you read the recipe you might say mojito? right but where is the rum!?! Rum is just too sugary and besides we didn’t have any only a really nice bottle of vodka from our anniversary trip to Maine.
Skinny Mojito (makes 1 serving)
- 12 mint leaves
- 1/2 lime, quartered
- 1T agave nectar
- 1.5oz vodka
- club soda
Place mint and lime in the bottom of a cup and muddle together. Top with the agave and then fill the cup to the top with us. Pour over the vodka and then top with club soda. Gently stir together and enjoy!
Hubz and I are now going to relax and catch up on NCIS: LA and enjoy a snack of grapes for me and crackers and hummus for hubby.
