“You must be an active participant in the development of your new self. You might peel off some ugly layers but you will discover someone stronger and more resilient than you ever thought imaginable. So if you are depressed, overweight, unhappy or just STUCK I encourage you to start… don’t think about the weight number or the end of the ‘health streak’ think of it as reinventing yourself.”

Chicken and Onion Pizza

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/20171/quick-and-easy-pizza-crust/

  • I like to use canned diced tomatoes as my base instead of sugary tomato sauce.
  • add whatever toppings you like!
  • I like to cook my chicken in bite size pieces with garlic, onion and basil.

TIP: If you make the dough a few hours in advance and store it in a large bowl in the fridge the dough is chewier and tastier!

I live in Japan so this is for Japanese sweet potato, but I think any yam/sweet potato will reap the same results.

Brown Rice

Tip: Make sure your pot is big enough. I had so many failed attempts while using a small pot. My advice if you’re using a small pot use 1 cup of uncooked rice MAX.
