Happy Thursday everyone! And yay for it almost being the weekend, especially for my fellow bloggers who’s Thursdays are their Fridays (like me )!!
Last night me and Andy had a fun dinner. Pizza!
This baby was made with:
Whole Foods Marinara Sauce (bought in the fridge section)
Daiya vegan cheese
Mmmmmm this was so good!! The crust was surprisingly pretty great but I would definitely prefer some non-gluten free pizza dough. This one was a little dense but maybe that was because we didn’t have a real pizza pan and had to use a cookie sheet…. I know that pizza pans have little holes all over them. Does anyone know if using a pizza pan over a cookie sheet really makes a difference?
I was also so skeptical over this vegan cheese. I had heard some really good things about it and I’m trying to cut back on dairy so I invested in this HUGE bag of Daiya cheese. I was not disappointed!! This vegan cheese melts and tastes like cheese!! It has almost the same consistency and I’ve just looked at the website and not only does it taste yummy, it’s also soy, gluten, nut, cholesterol, and trans fat free. Its completely vegan and also won Veg News’ Product of the Year Award!! Such a great purchase! I was so nervous because the only store that carries it around here sells it in these huge bags so I had to either have tons of it or none of it. When I asked the store owner if they had smaller sizes she said no and then these two guys who were shopping just looked at me and one said “Its soooo worth it!” and the other nodded (very enthusiastically). I was sold. Has anyone tried this cheese yet? I highly recommend!
Back to the pizza. It was so good! I love simple toppings on pizza, especially when fresh basil is involved!! I also love lots of different types of veggies on my pizza…… I guess it really depends on my mood. This time, I really wanted to taste the flavors of the basil and the sauce.
Another new food I’ve been excited over is Overnight Oats! I can’t believe that I had never made them before!! I’m so glad that I finally did, just in time for the warmer weather!! I especially love putting raisins in the mix. Love how they plump up!!
In my mix:
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup plain soy yogurt
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup soymilk
handful of raisins
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
Topped with a drizzle of Canadian Maple Syrup! Yummy
Mmmmmm overnight oats make me happy! They are so good alongside a nice steamy cup of coffee!!
Today is going to be a good day. I can feel it!! I woke up feeling great and I have two labs to do before my weekend starts. The labs are for Chemistry and Biology and I think they’re short ones too!!! Catcha Later ladies and gents!!
Question: If you’ve made overnight oats, what’s your favorite ingredients to put in them!! (I’m a newbie so I need some tips!)
