It is all about priorities...we take time to get ready and look good for work, drive our long commute, go to work on time, take care of our family, make the beds, clean the floors, mow the lawn...because we have to, we don't question these things...we just do it.
As humans, we take comfort in routine. At first finding the time to cook may seem difficult, but once it becomes a routine it becomes comforting. We also need to put a priority on cooking and eating right in order to gain back our health! It is essential to a healthier and HAPPIER you:)!
So instead of the routine of picking up Pizza Hut breadsticks and pizza, try this recipe and serve it with "healthified" pasta ideas from NUTRITIOUS and DELICIOUS cookbook.
1 1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
PIZZA HUT SPICE MIX:
4 TBS Parmesan cheese
3 TBS garlic powder
1 TBS onion powder
1 TBS oregano
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a square baking dish or line a muffin pan with paper baking cups or spray with coconut oil spray (click HERE to find).
In a food processor (click HERE to find the one I love for less than $30!) or large bowl, mix the cottage cheese, coconut flour, baking powder, eggs, salt and 1/2 of the Pizza Hut seasoning until very smooth.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups 3/4 full, scatter with the remaining spice mix, and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until set, risen, and golden brown. Serve as hot or at room temperature. Makes 9 muffins.
