    Mediterranean Pizza

    I love healthy pizza! We make it whenever we get a chance. Like when I made a roasted vegetable pizza with my girlfriends. This is a healthy variation with feta cheese instead of loads of mozzarella. You may want to call it a flat bread. Pizza or flat bread, I think you’ll love it. Ingredients: Pizza dough, whole wheat if desired 5 Roma tomatoes, sliced thinly 4 Cups spinach, finely chopped 1/2 Red onion, thinly sliced 1/2 Cup kalamata olives, chopped 3/4 Cup Feta cheese Ground black pepper Oregano Marjoram Olive oil Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and put your pizza stone in the oven to heat.

    How Do Vegetarians Get Protein?

    “How do you get your protein?” As a vegetarian, it’s a question we hear all the time. I had a friend ask me this recently. From that experience, I realized that it’s an honest question coming from people who are curious about how others live their lives. Sometimes people assume vegetarians eat nothing but kale and quinoa for every meal. 🙂 Or maybe they think we eat nothing but pasta and breads all day (some do) but most, educated, vegetarians do not. In my experience of meeting other vegetarians, they have become so after careful introspection of their personal beliefs and information about food. To give you a bit of …

    Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

    I found myself with a few extra peppers  and thought I would try something new. This makes a great meal because you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand.  I like the combination of mushrooms and spinach with the spicy seasoning. My Mom gave me a jar of potlatch seasoning, which is supposed to be a seafood spice rub but I added a teaspoon to the filling for a little seasoning. Feel free to mix things up, I like the spiciness that the seasoning and pepper jack cheese provides. Quinoa Stuffed Peppers Ingredients: 2 Peppers, any variety 1 Cup quinoa, cooked (2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa) 1…
