this site had some great info, so check it out! There's lots of opinions out there as to how much water we should be drinking, but the general consensus is 8 glasses per day. However, if you want an accurate idea day-by-day (based on weight, weather, etc) you can check out this Hydration Calculator I found! I'm going to do a few posts over the next couple of weeks with some ideas on how to drink more water. As you can see in the photo, I'm starting by carrying a water bottle with me wherever I go. You can buy a huge pack of them and pack one in your handbag each day. Often I get thirsty when I'm out (especially at the shops!) and resort to buying a bottle of water at retail price! So now I can even save a bit of money.
this recipe which I decided to adapt a little. In short, you make little pizzas but use large flat mushrooms instead of traditional pizza bases. Luckily we're big mushroom-lovers in this house! Once you've chopped all your ingredients, these are so quick and easy to assemble. Perfect week night meal that I think I'm going to be pulling out fairly regularly! You can choose your own toppings, otherwise here's what I did...
Mini Mushroom Pizzas
Olive oil spray
4 large flat mushrooms, stalks removed
1/4 jar tomato-based pasta sauce
Handful baby spinach leaves
1 chorizo sausage, diced
2 thin slices prosciutto, torn into shreds
1/2 red capsicum, diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
Handful of shredded pizza-blend cheese
1 tbs oregano (dry or fresh)
Preheat oven to 180C.
Spray olive oil in a non-stick pan. Add chorizo, prosciutto, capsicum and onion. Cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until onion and capsicum have softened a little. Set aside.
Lay mushrooms on a baking tray, under-sides up. Spread pasta sauce on under-side of mushrooms.
Lay a few spinach leaves on each mushroom. Top with chorizo mixture. Top with cheese. Sprinkle each mushroom with oregano.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve with a salad. Which I didn't, but totally will next time!
