Well, Ryan and I went out to pizza tonight as planned with a couple friends and…..I ordered the “vegan cheeseless” and LOVED IT! I think the reason I loved it so much was because I really didn’t think of it as pizza. It was more like a thin, crispy flatbread covered with tomato sauce, caramelized red onions, shredded cabbage, grilled portobella mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and spinach. Wow! I ordered the “personal size” pizza (the picture makes it look HUGE..but it was only 10 inches and without cheese, was not as filling as my usual greasy pizza!!!) and I actually ate the whole thing. And, after I ate it I really didn’t feel all gross and heavy like I normally do after eating 2 slices of cheese-laden pizza. Ryan stared at me in awe when I finished the pizza and rubbed my tummy so I felt sort of like a pig…..but the crust was thin and all that gave the “pizza” substance was the grilled veggies! It was more like a big yummy salad! I would def. order this again and I can’t believe I really didn’t miss the cheese. That’s a first!!
After pizza, we went to our friend’s engagement party and I had a small dixie cup of red wine when we got there. I think I drank it too quickly though because after drinking it I got a headache…. so I made my next drink a club soda with a lemon slice. 🙂 We just got home now and, of course, I had to have a cookie. Those things are dangerous!!!
So it would seem like I ate a whole lot of food tonight. That’s so strange though because I really don’t even feel that full! I think it must be all the veggies!!!
This afternoon I snacked on a bowl of strawberries while getting ready!
