Sweet Potato Pizza

by Meghann on July 13, 2010

Let’s call this creation Sweet Potato Pizza.

Basically it’s pizza on a sweet potato instead of a crust.

Complete with marinara sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil, and some crushed almond for a little crunch.

Creative, no? It was actually really, really good and something quick to throw together after yoga tonight.

Yoga was intense tonight, but not in that fast paced constantly flowing way, it was more of that holding difficult poses for as long as possible way. It was a nice change of pace and one that will leave me sore in the morning. I can already feel it in my shoulders. 🙂

I brought a container of Honey Nut Cheerios as a snack today.

The cheerios seemed light, so I dug into my desk drawer and found some almond butter to add to the mix.

Mmmm… much better. 😉

Dessert was in the form of vanilla ice cream with a sprinkle of granola.

I’ve been recording the new show Huge on ABC Family and have really been enjoying it. If you’re not familiar with the show, Huge revolves around seven teens that are sent to fat camp for the summer.

I like the fact that even though the entire show is based on over weight teenagers who are trying to lose weight at fat camp, it’s not what the story line actually focuses on. Instead the show revolves around the drama of what typical teens would be going through at camp, whether they were there to lose weight or not. They’re still struggling to find their place amongst the popular and not so popular. They’re still struggling as they try to find themselves. And they’re still looking for love.

It’s a great teen drama and I would recommend it as a good summer watch.

The show kind of reminds me of Bug Juice. Only that was a reality television show that took place at camp. Did anyone ever watch that back in the day on the Disney Channel? I wonder what ever happened to those kids?

Did you ever go to summer camp?

When I was in middle school I went to Sea World Adventure Camp down in the keys. It was pretty cool. We got to say in old slave quarter on one of the abandoned keys (Pigeon Key) and spent our days snorkeling and swimming.

In high school I went to Aquatic Adventure Camp in Pennsylvania . There I learned to kayak and earned my scuba diving certification. 🙂

Camps were fun! I wish I had been able to go to more back in the day.
