Almond and Cauliflower Meat Pizza

Almond and Cauliflower Meat Pizza

In recent months I’ve been thinking about our diet a lot. Especially my husband Howard and son Ted. I feel like my body is better on a higher fibre diet. Whereas Howard and Ted are better on a higher protein and fat diet. Whenever I feed Howard and Ted beans and legumes I could plug them into the gas mains and make money from their bottom burps.

Last week I decided to change their diet to higher protein and more fat. Immediately the bottom burping stopped and I think they are feeling better in themselves as well. Plus they are enjoying the food I’m now cooking for them. Howard and Ted loved this pizza and I’m sure they will ask for it again soon.

Have you ever had to make changes to your diet and did they help? Let me know in the comments below and please don’t forget to like and follow me.

Almond and Cauliflower Meat Pizza

Almond and Cauliflower Meat Pizza was a yummy meal that my little family enjoyed. The pizza was quick and easy to prepare and cook. You could make the base in advance of the meal and store it in the fridge overnight. Personally I wouldn’t freeze it but you can if you want to. All the ingredients in the base are freezable so it would be ok. I prefer to make food fresh where possible. However you decide to eat this pizza, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
