My family and friends love to go out for pizza, but it is not my thing. Unless I want a salad. And who wants to eat a salad while you sit and watch every one else sit and eat gooey, cheesy pizza? Oh and then there is "gluten-free" pizza. But then that is usually made out of rice flour, so whaddya do? Well we have a local pizza place here called Tommy's Pizza. They have what they call Paleo Bowls. And they are awesome!! Basically you can get any pizza topping you want along with their sauce on a bed of spinach. Just let me tell ya....it is SOOOOO good. I think they are about 7 bucks but you totally get enough for 2 meals.....well, I know I do! haha! And you can just mix and match any ingredients and come up with drastically different flavors each time. I'm a traditionalist, so I tend to stick to the same thing each time, but who knows... I might venture out and change it up next time....probably not. Who am I kidding??? I'm not the least bit adventurous! lol! O.k here is a pic of the last Paleo Bowl I got at Tommy's Pizza.
I KNOW! How great does that look? I just ate breakfast but I think I could still take that down, cause it looks so good! This one has some spinach, sauce, chicken, onion, mushrooms and peppers. So GOOD!
Well this last week I was stuck at home due to that darn stomach bug that hit everyone in my fam except for me. Praise the Lord! And it just so happens I was craving a Paleo Bowl...MAJORLY! So what's a girl to do? Make my own....that's what I'll do.
So I took about 2 cups of fresh baby spinach and put it in the bottom of a bowl. Topped that with warm marinara sauce mixed with grass fed beef, onion, and green pepper. Topped that with sauteed mushrooms, 1 slice of chopped bacon, some diced jalapeno and VIOLA!!! I had a paleo bowl right in my own house! Craving crisis averted!
So your take away lesson here is......If you are near Tommy's Pizza....go there and getcha a Paleo Bowl! And if your not....make your own at home! Let your tastebuds be your guide! You won't be sorry!!
