Super Protein Smoothie

I have been taking a walk everyday 2 times a day and I know that I haven’t been good in drinking lots of water and I know that I need more protein then what I am consuming so I decided to amp up this smoothie and add a lot of fresh and interesting things to this to make it different then the other smoothies that I have made in the past. I will tell you that I believe that this is my best one yet. 

2 Servings

Ingredients: 

1 cup almond coconut milk 

2 tbls Dannon Vanilla Greek yogurt ( use what you have )

3-4 fresh kale 

1 tbls honey

Homemade Fennal Italian Sausage and Vegatable Pizza

I am not a huge pizza fan because two things. Too much pizza sauce and so greasy. Even though I tell them lite sauce it’s not lite sauce and it’s just way to greasy. 

So I decided that I would make the kids their pepporoni pizza, hubby his pizza with pepperoni, mild peppers and mushrooms and I wanted something unique but also healthy as you can get with pizza. 

 

Ingredients: 

half a green pepper 

half a onion

half bottle of capers 

handful of mild peppers 

8 ounces of sliced mushrooms 

4-6 slices of low sodium deli ham 

1 cup pizza sauce ( I like mine with light sauce )

2-3 Fennel Italian Sausage ( peeled the skin off ) 

2-3 pcs of fresh Kale leaves

5-6 pcs of fresh Spinach leaves 

2-3 tsp crushed red peppers 

8 ouns mozzarella cheese 

2 pkgs pizza dough ( I would have used whole wheat but where I went didn’t have it) 

 

Instructions: 

Preheat the oven to 450. In the meantime prepare pizza dough if you didn’t buy the pre made pizza crust. Cook per instructions. Once the crust is ready add on the toppings the way you prefer and over in cheese and bake for 20 minutes or longer pending if you want it crisper.  Let cool and enjoy. 

I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.
