Paleo Pizza Heaven

I just realized that maybe I’ve been slacking on talking about my meals lately…sorry.  I’ll work on it.

Let me start off by saying this recipe for pizza may be the most amazing thing I’ve found to date.  Not only did I make pizza (that everyone practically inhaled and didn’t even question), but I also used the same recipe to make pitas!  Everyone who I have made this pizza for (Paleo or not), loved it.  You can dress it up however you want.  If you eat dairy, you can add your cheese.  Now, of course you can’t be eating this every day, but it sure makes Friday nights a little more exciting…pizza night!  This recipe has changed my life!  (Not really…but you get the point)  If you would like further directions, contact me.

1 cup water
1/2 cup ghee, grass-fed butter or extra virgin coconut oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 1/2 cups tapioca flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup coconut flour

I’ve been using recipes from the “Practical Paleo” book, and doing a lot of my own little creations.  All the mouths I feed have zero complaints.  So I went from zero to cooking hero in four short months.  I can’t wait to make some Christmas cookies!  (a week away…wow)  I’m going to make some not Paleo (that I will NOT be eating), and Paleo ones that I can enjoy before my 30 days of strict Paleo living begins (January 1…there’s still time to jump on the band wagon).  That means 30 days of no Paleo treats…I got this!  I should be able to lose a few more pounds, and I’m adding more gym days to my week again so I’ll get a bit more toned.

A few months ago I had filled a closet with all these clothes I was going to get rid of because they were too small.  This weekend I decided to clean that closet out; my pile was drastically reduced because a lot of the stuff actually fit again.  The clothes I wore last New Year’s Eve I am donating because now they are way too big.  (Can you see the smile on my face?)  I’m hoping that by my 31st birthday (March 31), that I’m close to my end goal.  I had this hoodie that I wore during last football season, I put it on…I looked like a 3 year old in my dad’s jacket.  I’m not even exaggerating.  Amazing.  After the new year I think a shopping spree is in order.

I read this article about Adam Richman (Man vs. Food), and how “he ditched the show, overcame his bad habits, and took control of his body.”  I met him a few years ago, nice guy.  Here’s the article: Man vs. Flab.  Glad to see he’s doing awesome!

I can’t wait to go snowboarding this season.  I want to see what Paleo does for riding.  I used to get a lot of leg and foot cramps, so I’m wondering if eliminating all the gluten and such will help with that.  I’ll keep you posted.

This is has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself.

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
