Peanut Butter and Pizza

After having the creme egg last night I work up thirsty but not hungry. So I started my breakfast with a smoothie with made with water, vanilla whey protein, banana and rainbow chard. I whizzed it a bit too long in the blender and it came out like an ice-cream soda:

The shake didn’t sit well in my stomach though so I didn’t get through it all:

A bit later I had Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal (I made mine with soy milk and less stevia). It was quite rich – like having dessert for breakfast:

That kept me going for quite a while, so my next meal was a late lunch. I used up the last of my refried black beans and had them on sprouted grain toast again with avocado, salsa and salad:

I saw Meghann’s BBQ Pork Pita Pizza a few days ago and, since I had all the vegetable ingredients, decided to do a variation of that for dinner. Instead of the pita bread base, I used this gluten-free pizza base made from polenta, and instead of pork I used chicken:

It wasn’t a huge meal so a bit later I had a snack. Some pineapple:
