I have been in Thanksgiving mode, as I am sure most of you are too. I don’t have any dining room chairs and I have been working on trying to get some from my chair stash painted. I finished one of them last night and I decided to try and glaze it. Oh, I wish I had not done that. It did not look at ALL what I had intended it too, so today……I am starting over. UGH.
On a completely other note, I have lost about 10 pounds over the past 6 weeks, trying to stick to a clean diet. I have been eating no processed foods, sugars or chemicals. This basically means eating fresh and eating the way God intended us to. I have never had so much energy and the weight just seemed to melt off. I did cheat and eat birthday cake but it made me feel so tired and sluggish after I ate it. I now can see how sugar can be related to a drug! One of my favorite recipes that I have come up with is a Barbecue Chicken Pizza with a Hawaiian Twist. I crave this pizza and eat it at least twice a week! I wanted to share it with you.
My crust is found in the ethnic section of the grocery store. It’s an Ezekiel Bread Tortilla. It’s only 80 calories and has all of the essential grains that our diets lack such as millet and barley. The recipe actually came directly out of the Bible in Ezekiel. I then use a clean barbecue sauce. Look for low sugar and low carbs. I sprinkled it with goat cheese, grilled chicken breast, purple onion, pineapple and fresh chopped cilantro and then baked it in the oven on 350 until the crust was crisp. It is delicious!! I am heavily considering starting another blog in addition to this one that is specifically geared towards eating clean and clean recipes. I need a place to catalog my recipes for myself and thought I would share them with others. Would anyone be interested in reading such a blog? I would love to know your thoughts.
