Oh wow, this is amazing. I honestly did not know what I was getting myself into when I decided on a cauliflower crusted pizza for a mid week dinner. I must say I’m glad I did it. I had seen a couple of people mentioning it on the interwebz and I have to say I felt quite virtuous sitting down to my dinner. I’m always looking for lighter, healthier alternatives for some of my favourites and who doesn’t love indulging in a pizza as a mid-week treat. Now you can and it’s all vegetable. High five!

These are superheroes in burger form. I love Quinoa and combining it with some lean freshly ground chicken breast is a genius combination. It’s just bursting with protein!!
A couple of weeks ago, I finally admitted that I was injured. Something I didn’t want to as the football season had just started and I was loving being part of the team and on top of that, being active is a big part of my lifestyle. I was training with a great bunch of girls and an excellent coach to lead us. However, on the night of our first match of the season, I was standing on the side line about to go on with a searing pain going through my legs. I lasted about 10 minutes and then I was done. The following week I attempted a go at training but it was short lived and I haven’t been to a training session in two weeks. So, I have been taking it very easy the last few weeks, lots of walking and Iyengar yoga, visits to the Osteopath and I’m on the road to recovery.
One of the simple pleasures in life, well in my life, is being able to get a meal together with whatever may be lying around the pantry or in the fridge. This is definitely one of those recipes.
Two weeks ago, I started training in GAA football (Irish Football) with a team here in Perth. The team is made up of mainly Australian girls with a few Irish thrown in the mix. I was so surprised when I arrived in Australia and learned that the girls team of my boyfriend’s football club were mainly Australian. I shouldn’t really have been too surprised seeing as the team I trained with in Qatar had Australian, English, Irish, American, Scottish etc… What does surprise me though, is the influence that GAA is having throughout the world. So much so, that in September of every year, the GAA hold a Tournament known as the Asian Gaelic Games. Last year it was Seoul and the year before, Hong Kong. My boyfriend with his team flew to Hong Kong in 2010 and played against other Irish living abroad in Asian countries. They even had the pleasure of having a drink with Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh. Regarded as one of Ireland’s greatest commentators on Irish gaelic games.
Well, it’s been a crazy few weeks, having gone home to Ireland for the Christmas holidays and caught up with family and friends and ate puddings and drank mulled wine, sang songs, sat by the fire, feasted on good solid Irish food and then whizzed back to Perth to begin the new year in sunny style.
