Man, today was my day as far as productivity goes! This morning, after my all-too-necessary cup (or two) of coffee, I knocked out an easy 8 mile run. As soon as I got home, I made a big bowl of oatmeal with strawberries, cottage cheese stirred in at the end and topped with peanut butter before showering, getting ready and heading to the grocery store. I needed to pick up a few last necessary items for the lasagna dinner and cupcakes that I was planning on making for friends of our who just had a baby girl.
After spending the morning in the kitchen and before spending the afternoon studying, I had a late and totally delicious lunch!
I have been wanted to make these babies for a long time, but I knew I had to do it at a time when Jason wouldn't be around....he is disgusted by mushrooms!
Skinny Portobello Sausage Pizzas
2 Portobello Mushrooms (stems removed)
2 spoonfulls of Marinara sauce
1 chicken sausage, chopped
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 clove garlic, minced
Fresh basil, to taste
-Preheat oven to 350*
-Add a spoonful of Marinara to each cap
-Mix all remaining ingredients
-Put half of mixture into each cap
-Place on baking sheet and cook for about 20-25 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender
While I had the mushrooms cooking away, I took advantage of the oven being on and threw in some broccoli, which I had on the side for a little green power.
Off to deliver of baby treats!
Why Would Jessica Eat This?: Many people (my husband included!!) are totally disgusted by mushrooms and wouldn't touch them with a ten-foot pole....they don't know what a nutritional powerhouse they are missing out on! Mushrooms are a great source of many essential nutrients, such as niacin, selenium and riboflavin, but the biggest benefit you get from eating them is there outrageous vitamin D content!
