Spring Is Here!!!

I find when the sun is shining I want delicious good for me food more than ever! This morning I had a little medley that I have used a few different ways over the past few days. Just using up some produce in my fridge so it doesn't go to waste. The first thing I made was a pizza...I even made the whole wheat vegan friendly crust myself (I am awesome). It wasn't the best crust ever BUT it was my first attempt, so I will perfect it. Then I made my pizza topping with sliced radicchio so it was in thread like pieces. Then I quartered up some mushrooms LOVE them and used 1/2 and avocado. I sautéed up the mushrooms first for a minute in safflower oil, but you can use any oil you'd like. Then I added in the sliced radicchio (yum yum) and tossed it around a little...OH and I grated up one garlic clove and tossed that in with the radicchio. From there I just added in the cubed avocado just to warm it up a little, adding some salt and pepper. I then put it on the cooked pizza crust and voila!! Since then I have used the same mix for a wrap and then this morning I had it on a slice of toast. It is one of those yummy things that while you eat it you are saying to can this taste so good and not be so bad? But is not only scrumptious but your body will love you too with all of the wonderful fats you are getting from the avocado which will make your hair shiny and your skin glow, who can refuse that? Here’s a little about radicchio 'Good for you… Radicchio is especially high in antioxidants such as flavonoids and phenylic acid. Interestingly, radicchio contains much more antioxidants than other varieties of chicories (such as escarole or curly endive). It also provides vitamins A and C and phosphorus.'

So try something new today and I hope you can realize how simple and easy making nutritious yummy food is. Make the time to help develop your best you!!
