Last week while shopping at Trader Joe’s, I came across Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust and thought, let’s give it a go! Frozen pizza crust is a good option for nights when you’re short on time but still want to incorporate fresh ingredients into your meal. When I brought it home, my husband wasn’t entirely impressed. But after I read out loud the 7 simple ingredients from the back of the box: Cauliflower, Cornflour, Water, Cornstarch, Potato Starch, Olive Oil, Salt – and expressed enthusiastically – that it was made in Italy, he shrugged his shoulders, walked away and said, “fine, I’ll try it.”
I used to be the type of person who only worked out at the gym or fancy and expensive workout studios. Then COVID-19 happened, and well, we were all forced to adjust our workout routine. I remember researching online for possible solutions when I saw an ad for Beachbody on Demand. Full disclosure: I had serious reservations. I didn’t think it was possible to get in a decent workout from my living room with a few dumbbells. Now almost a full year of exclusively doing at home workouts (aside from running or cycling outside), I can confidently say I won’t ever go back to the gym full-time. This new way of working out has completely changed my mindset around what I can achieve fitness-wise from the comfort of my own home.
Although at times, 2020 often resembled an ugly and smelly dumpster fire that never seemed to stop burning, I think we can all agree that there were positive things that happened, too. 2020 will forever be known as the year we were all sent to our rooms, forced to slow down and evaluate what was and what was not working for us.
There is no denying it, I love my smoothies thick and cold. Years ago, I learned this genius hack for making my smoothie super chilly and creamy, like a milkshake, that has forever changed the way I make my post workout drink.
