The perfect grain free pizza

Hello + happiest of Friday's to you! 

I've got the perfect weekend meal idea for you. PORTABELLO PIZZA. It's plant based and tastes delicious.

I'm sure you have noticed in a lot of restaurants mushrooms are a great "meat-like" alternative and in the case of this pizza, it makes the perfect grain-free option too. 

Ingredients: 

  • 4 portobello mushrooms
  • pizza toppings: bell peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, olives, capers, onions, garlic, lentils, legumes, goat cheese, goat feta, kale, arugula, fresh herbs... the possibilities are endless.  

Method: 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Wipe your shrooms, then pop the portobello mushrooms in the oven for about 20 minutes or until they soften a bit. 
  • Pull them out, then add your toppings.
  • Place back in the oven for about 10 minutes on bake, then I usually broil it for a couple minutes get the toppings. 
  • Optional: Add a drizzle of EVOO or some pesto before serving.  

I served this with a heaping pile of sweet potato and parsnip fries {heavy on the turmeric}, some olives and a side salad. Truthfully, the portobello base is super satisfying and doesn't cause bloating. That's a win-win. 


In other news. I just wrapped up the first round of The Thriving Mom Project and am feeling...well...SO happy. And perhaps even a little emotional. The chance to lead 26 women on a 6 week journey to help them reclaim their health is nothing I take lightly.

As a mama there is always someone or something that requires our time and energy but over a prolonged amount of time our cup will end up empty. There is nothing left in the tank. We forget who we once were. Our energy sucks. Our self-care is non-existent and we feel like we are treading to stay above water. Sound familiar? 

I feel honoured to have been able to help these amazing mama's kick start their health journey as they commit to better health.

My cup is full {literally....}

I have had some awesome feedback already and can't wait for the next round in the fall.

If you want to stay in the loop on when the fall session starts, feel free to enter your name on the waiting list {FOLLOW THIS link to add your name}. 

I hope you have the best weekend. We have some family fun planned with the kiddo's...including some more Saturday morning baseball. 


Probably the cutest thing ever. 

Happy weekend!
