So, I’m just going to get right to it, this diet sucks, ha! No seriously, it really sucks. This is by far the hardest plan I’ve ever stuck to. I think the biggest problem is that I basically cut out all sugars, natural and otherwise, cold turkey overnight. Hopefully the GI dr. will have some info for me when I go for my first appointment next Monday. Probably not since it is just a consultation but I can always hope
Anyway, even though I’m missing my fruit and my smoothies and whatnot, I have had some pretty good meals. I even had pizza! How on earth did I manage to eat pizza on such a restrictive diet? Well I’ll tell ya
Not too shabby! It’s pretty sparse in toppings because I was testing out the crust and didn’t want to overload it with toppings. And what is that crust made out of? That’s cauliflower my friends! I finally tried Caralyn’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust after months of thinking about it. And let me tell you, it is great!! This crust has amazing flavor! I added a ton of garlic to mine because I love my cauliflower garlicky and the cauliflower flavor definitely came through which I love! I had a hard time getting my crust to hold together which is why it is still on the parchment paper but it was still amazing! I’ll have to play around with the recipe to figure out how to keep the crust together. I’ve seen cauliflower pizza crusts with cheese in it but I had a feeling that Daiya isn’t part of the ACD, ha.
Pretty right?! I topped mine with thin slices of zucchini and some fresh tomato. I also sliced up a clove of garlic and put it on there too. I topped it off with a drizzle of olive oil and some black pepper. Such a great combo. I definitely want to try this again post ACD with sauce and cheese and to try and get that crust to stick together
Hope you’ve all had a great day! I’m pretty excited about relaxing tonight, been feeling pretty tired lately. Does anyone watch The Voice? I’ve watched every season, I love it! Definitely ready to settle in under the covers, read some blogs and watch The Voice at 8
Have a good night!
