Green beans with cherry tomatoes and bacon

I am realizing I need more veggies in my life and less fruit. It sucks but its true. Next week I am actually going on a no fruit, no nut, no sugar week. I tried about 10 days ago and failed on the first hour. So this week’s grocery shopping will NOT consist of those items and WILL consist of more green’s.

This was really good. I was just going to stir fry some green beans with my one piece of bacon. I saw I had a tub full of cherry tomatoes and figured I would throw those in as well. Good choice! They make this creamy sauce combined with the bacon and becomes really good! (Plus Joe always gives me crap for buying veggies at Costco and saying they go bad. So I am determined never to let my veggies go bad!)

Ingredients:

  • A bunch of green beans
  • A bunch of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 piece of bacon. (The really good kind, thick yummy)
  • Little salt and pepper
  • 1 clove of crushed garlic

Chop up your piece of bacon and throw it in with the green beans, tomatoes, and garlic. If the bacon doesnt give you enough slip in your pan for the veggies to cook then add a small amount of coconut oil. (I did). Smells delicious and the longer you cook it the more the bacon and tomatoes combine and make this awesome flavor.

I served mine next to some coconut chicken and non peanut sauce (Recipe in past post) . So tasty!

Pizza time! (dairy and grain free of course!)

Okay…minus the cheese

Yes, the food we felt we lost can be made without cheese or flour! Now this isn’t a daily dinner, just a treat when your feeling homesick for some pizza.

Crust:

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 3 tbls olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tbls chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbls oregano

Mix all the dry ingredients together and then mix the eggs and olive oil together. Mix all ingredients and form into a ball of dough. Now this is extremely sticky, so rolling this out can be tricky! Spread parchment paper on a baking sheet or cookie sheet. Put a little of the almond meal on your hands and spread evenly to about a 1/8 inch thick. (See… sticky!)

Once that is done, put in the oven for about 20 minutes while you are chopping your veggies.

Toppings:

  • Bell peppers
  • Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Sausage meat
  • Oregano
  • Zucchini
  • Organic Pizza Sauce
  • Small can of sliced olives

I cut the bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and saute them lightly in olive oil just to get them nice and soft. I add pieces of the sausage (packaged Adele’s organic sausage is great, just slice it up and throw it in). Take your crust out of the oven and spread the pizza sauce over it evenly. Add the toppings from the pan and then take your zuchhini and grate it over the pizza like you are grating cheese. Add the sliced olives on top.

Put back in the over for another 20 minutes and enjoy!!
