Getting more veggies

One thing I learned from the slightly disastrous detox is that I need more vegetables. Working and being tired all the time has put a damper on my eating habits and I've gotten lazy. Its no excuse, I just need to manage time better. And I discovered a fabulous new thing in the bakery section of Super Target.... Naan flatbread. Garlic flavored. YUM!!!

I'm sure they have this at any grocery store but since I work at Target, this is where I got mine. It comes through my line all the time but I never paid much attention until the other night. A lightbulb went off, and after my shift I grabbed one along with a green pepper, zucchini, feta and mozzarella cheese, a tomato and mushrooms. When I got home, I sprinkled a little of the cheese on the bread and topped it with as much of the veggies as I could without thinking they would fall off. A little more cheese on the top, and 20 minutes later at 350 and it was this amazing little sauce-less pizza type thing. SO. GOOD. And I didn't even want or need sauce, and it made enough that I brought half to work for lunch the next day. So grab your favorite vegetables, find this amazing bread, and make it for yourself. Don't go totally crazy with the cheese, just enough to make it all stick together and you have a great way to eat veggies. If you combine this with the green smoothies that I mention in this post you will be well on your way to getting the veggies you need in a day. Good luck!
