Who doesn’t love a good slice of pizza?  Just because my baby girl is dairy-free doesn’t mean she should be banned from one of the world’s greatest food pleasures.

Here we custom made our pizzas.

  • My half is goat cheese, plum tomatoes, sliced black olives, basil, red onion while her side is pizza sauce and goat cheese.
  • We par baked Pillsbury Artisan Crust for about 10 minutes at 400
  • We thin piled our pizza high minus the basil and baked for another 10 minutes
  • About a minute before the pizza was cooked we sprinkled with the basil so it wouldn’t burn.
  • After it came out we drizzled honey on the crust

YUM YUM YUM!  I ate my half.  L added more honey and ate half of her half.


Juicing it Up!

I’ve had this juicer for over 20 years (hand-me down from my sister) and it only gets used a couple times a year when I am reminded of what a pain in the butt it is to clean!

However with Steve’s arthritis, aging and just keeping up our energy I’ve brought it out again.  This time we are going strong.  It’s addicting.  It has been about 3 months and I feel great minus our cruise and holiday set back.

The best part is that the girls help me and without realizing it they are eating tons of the vegetables as they help me prepare.  They then dare each other to try it when it’s complete.  While they think it is gross they each get at least a sip or two which is loaded with enzymes so I am happy; dare away!

It took me a while to get the right mix that both Steve and I enjoyed.  Initially it involved grapefruit but that darn fruit messes with medications so I took that out and replaced with apples.

My go-to recipe is:

  • A large apple
  • 3/4 lemon
  • a couple handfuls of spinach
  • a few celery stalks
  • a few big carrots
  • about 3/4 cucumber

I pour mine over ice and drink; Steve chugs his.  The only thing is bacteria can grow pretty quickly so I think you have to drink within a few hours.
