Cauliflower Crust Pizza


It may take a little bit more time and effort to prepare than ordinary pizza, but honestly; cauliflower crust pizza is one of the nicest things I have ever made and eaten. I know, I know, quite a claim!

I was a bit sceptical at first - not because I was worried about the taste (I love cauliflower) but I thought it was going to be really complicated to make. But actually, although it does take a while to prepare, it's not technically difficult at all.

This is my recipe adapted and inspired by various cauliflower crust pizza recipes I have found on blogs, cookery websites and in food magazines - I did my fair bit of research!

Healthy Living (The Lazy Girl’s Guide)

We all want to be healthy, right? Of course we do – we want to feel good and look good, especially with bikini season fast approaching (!). But then there are things such as melting moments and blondies which make you want to rip up your diet plan and stuff your face with yumminess…

For a while now some of you have been requesting a post about my healthy living lifestyle, and I can’t wait to share some of my tips with you because I have a huge confession to make.

I am really lazy.

Seriously; I am a massive couch potato! I find it pretty much impossible to cut things like chocolate out of my diet (hello, have you tasted Reese’s peanut butter cups?) and as for going to the gym everyday – well, yeah, that’d be great, but I simply don’t have the time or energy.

However, it was not that long ago that I made some small changes to my everyday lifestyle (and I do mean small, honestly) – trying out new recipes, cutting out certain foods, squeezing a few exercises into my busy routine… And I’ve found that when I stick to this new plan properly, I really, really do feel a lot better!

So here it is, Part 1 of The Lazy Girl’s Guide to healthy living. Today I’ll focus on food, as let’s be honest; that’s what we all really care about, and next time I’ll look more at exercise and general lifestyle changes. Enjoy!

Well I think we can all officially kick back and relax, as we welcome the start of the Easter weekend tomorrow. I'm so excited!

We've got a fair bit of travelling planned here, there and everywhere, as we want to see as many family members and friends as possible during our time off. That's what's so lovely about holidays such as Easter and Christmas; it's a chance to get together, eat lots of gorgeous food, have a good catch up and, let's not forget, exchange gifts - whether that be stockings or Easter eggs!
