Peaches, Pizza, And Pesto

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

I woke up super early this morning as my mom is picking me up at 7 AM for our weekend road trip. We have an 8-hour drive ahead of us, and I wanted to get the dogs walked before leaving. Breakfast was an old favorite. Rolled oats + vanilla protein powder + peaches will always hold a special place in my heart and you can read why here.


I love peach season!

Before I leave, I wanted to share last night’s dinner with you. Between walking my morning and afternoon errands + walking the dogs, I ended up covering a total of 6.5 miles yesterday. That’s a lot for me these days, especially in this heat. So I decided I needed pizza for dinner. :)


World’s easiest gluten free pizza crust.

My mom is experimenting with a gluten free diet, hence all my gluten free meals as of late. For my pizzas, I simply warmed two corn tortillas in a skillet on the stovetop and topped them with tomato paste, spinach, and crumbled goat cheese. I then placed the pizzas on a baking sheet under the broiler until nice and toasty. After removing them from the oven, I added a few drizzles of Katie’s pesto sauce. These took hardly any time to prepare and totally satisfied my pizza craving.

Katie, CD is loving on your pesto too…we ate a total of 3 batches this week! Here was his lunch yesterday…

OK, time for me to go. Not sure what my eats will include this weekend. I used to stress out about food whenever I traveled, but now I just try to go with the flow. However, I did pack some rolled oats and plenty of Justin’s nut butter just in case. I’m also hoping to get in a little yoga while away. There will be no yoga studios where we’re headed, but I have plenty of YogaDownload classes on my laptop.

Do you stop for food while traveling? I’m not a fan of fast food and usually pack a cooler for the car….however the HEABlet has been begging for some Arby’s lately. 😉
