What I ate today. . .
Leftover half pan veggie frittata, slice bread, 4 mini falafel & 1 T hummus; banana; venti chai; four homemade mushroom & tomato pizza buns, lots of salad with mushrooms, tomatoes, croutons and Caesar dressing; half a pear and a brewed chai with 2%.
Be warned: I am going to speak of poo. If you’re made queasy by this topic, avert your tiny baby eyes. Now.
I’ve noticed that, um, things are moving more smoothly of late. I feel pretty good about it, light and free. Also, I’m not particularly gassy. I thought the added beans and veggies in the diet would increase the amount of stomach gas, but I haven’t noticed any changes in that regard. However, when it does happen, it always smells of a particular vegetable that I’ve eaten. Which is weird. When I ate meat, there wasn’t a distinctive smell, you know? Now it’s definitely weird to be reminded of what you eat, but it seems more natural somehow. Okay, end of poo talk.
Pizza buns are something I make when I have about ten minutes and am S-T-A-R-V-I-N-G. By the time George came home, the buns were in the oven. We could chat while we made a salad and put away dishes.
Easy Pizza Buns
8 leftover day old buns, split (can use hamburger or hot dog or just dinner rolls)
8 tsp pizza sauce (if you don’t have, mix 1/2 can tomato paste with 1/2 c. spaghetti sauce)
1 c. mozzarella, grated
2 T parmigiana cheese, grated
1 roma tomato, sliced
2 mushrooms, sliced
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place split buns on a baking tray. Spread 1 teaspoon of pizza sauce on each bun half, add toppings, and sprinkle with cheeses. Bake 15 minutes or until golden on top and cheese is melted. Serves at least 2.
