I decided to spend my almond meal tonight. It was so crazy expensive, I feel like I have to carefully budget it. Haha. Although I have to say it was totally worth it for those crepes!
- 2 cups almond meal
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp garlic powder
Preheat your oven to 350. Using a spoon mix all crust ingredients together until it becomes very thick. Using your hands, form the dough into a ball. Lightly grease a pizza pan or a cookie sheet with olive oil. Place the ball of dough in the center of your cookie sheet or pizza pan and using your hands, push and pat the dough down into the shape of a circle (or an oval in my case…). You want to make the dough as thin as possible. Your pizza will be about 12 inches across. Bake JUST the crust in your pre-heated oven for 20 minutes. While your crust is cooking, prepare your toppings. Top as desired and cook about another 10 minutes.
Mm mm! I loved it! It definitely had a nutty flavor, but no weird healthy consistency or aftertaste. Don’t you love those no-nonsense reviews? I chose to top with a little marinara and a little homemade pesto. I had some basil that was on the verge so it worked out perfectly.
I always like to gleefully remind Kevin when it’s a WOD day. I send him little emails just so he knows I’m planning the torture that is to come.
Or as Kevin calls it “MOD day.” He claims that he gets it mixed up with ModCloth. You can totally tell his best friend is a girl!
Good morning, blackberries!!!!! But even blackberries couldn’t brighten this Monday morning. What happened to the sun? It was seriously gloomy all day! I need the sun back!!!
The marvelous Black Bean Quinoa Taco leftovers!!! Kinda sad we ate all the leftovers already. We hit the gym straight after the office, and I pounded out a respectable 4 miles. I ran the last quarter at 10.0 for an overall pace of
And then for the WOD… they were playing basketball in the gym again so I had to nix some of the planned activities.
Kettlebell Pyramid time!! (via Myomytv)
The first round you start with 4 reps of each exercise, then each round after that you increase the reps by 2 until you get to 10. After that you go back to 8, then 6, then finally 4. I even hated myself when I got to the 8,10, 8 part!
- Goblet Squat
- Double Military Press/Push Press
- Suitcase Deadlift Burpee
- Push Up
- Double KB Bent Over Row
- Vertical Swing/Pull Burpee
That’s 7 rounds total. Ow. But I have a new love. Those Suitcase Deadlift Burpees aresweet.
And reverse! Those were fun. Just a tip — this move is TOUGH to do with kettlebells smaller than 25 pounds. It’s much easier to balance on the heavier weights.
The pushups, however, were not fun! I struggled through modified pushups. What’s up with that?
Our time – 29:06
Boyd and I found a great book to read. I read the first chapter while I was waiting for my computer to restart, and it’s already stealing my heart. Boyd just wants to lick it.
Boyd can’t balance things or stand on things. But if we’re having a really, really luck day, he might be able to stand behind something. But only if it’s too big for him to eat whole.
I don’t want to ask any questions. I just wanna go hang out with Kevin. Later!
