I have been getting up later than usual, just feel like hibernating at the moment, getting a little emotional, and my lovely hubby is patiently dealing with it all. Its still early days of Buserelin being in my system. I am not feeling like my usual self. So I am keeping myself busy and am enjoying being at home, using this time to learn more, read books, and work on recipes to share with you all.
I have cut out all meat and dairy products to help ease the symptoms and effects of endometriosis. It has been going well so far as I am really enjoying eating like this. I am craving fruit and vegetables so much more. Having to come up with delicious ways to eat vegan food and to find alternatives to replace dairy and eggs is actually a very satisfying and tasty adventure!
For lunch today I made a delicious and easy, nutrition packed, vegan pizza.
Fully Loaded Pizza
Lightly grill some gluten free flatbread, I used Warburton’s.
Grill some aubergine slices which have been lightly brushed with coconut oil. Sauté some mushrooms and leeks in a little coconut oil.
Spread about 2 Tbsp of vegan pesto onto the flatbread (I love a brand called Zest available at Planet Organic which is delicious!) and top with some sliced tomatoes, put back under the grill for a couple of mins.
Then assemble the rest of the pizza by adding the grilled aubergines, mushrooms and leeks, add some thinly sliced red onion and put back under the grill for a couple more mins. Add some chilli flakes , nutritional yeast and pink himalayan sea salt to taste.
Try it! easy, filling and yummy!!
