Last night I had pizza for the first time in 7 months and I didn't cheat on my low-carb/paleo/primal way of eating. I got 2 large portobello mushrooms and brushed them with olive oil, salt and pepper. Put in 400 degree oven for 5 min, cap side down. I made a pizza sauce from a can of tomato sauce, some finely diced onions, pizza seasonings and salt and pepper. After the 5 minutes turned the mushrooms over and spooned in the pizza sauce, sprinkled with parmesan cheese, added sliced pepperoni and topped with shredded mozarella, cooked for another 5 min. They were so yummy. I got a couple more portobello mushrooms to make them again tomorrow. This will become a staple at my house.

I went to King Soopers this morning and transfered another prescription and got another $25 put on my King Soopers card. Spent $7.32 for the prescription. I've gotten 5 RX rewards in the last couple weeks and spent $75.85 of it today in free groceries.

$40 of that was on macadamia nuts. This is the time of year to stock up on any kind of nuts, but they had 1 lb of macadamia nuts for $10.99, which is very good. They are normally $7 for 6 oz. I got 4 lbs and will freeze them.

I also got 2 packages of bacon for $3.88 each. Best price I've seen in a while. I got 10 cans of green beans for .49/each - another stock up price. I got 2 cans of Muir Glen organic tomato sauce for .25/each after coupon. I found a can of organic pumpkin in the clearance section for $1.79. Most of the rest of what I spent was for produce, romaine, spinach, radishes, mushrooms and tomatoes. I still have almost $50 left to spend on my RX savings. I need to stock up on walnuts, almonds and pecans. Maybe next week Smile

I wanted to get 10 packages of bumbleebee tuna to give to the food pantry - on sale for .40/each, but they were all sold out. I'll try again before the sale ends next Tuesday.

I finished reading my book Breaking Loose by Tara Janzen. Mystery - very good.

    A friend of mind uses portabello mushrooms as a meat substitute for burgers and she loves it. I must try it soon.

    That pizza sounds incredible, nice going! Portobello mushrooms are delicious and if they lead to some insurance that you can stay within your dietary restrictions, then all the better! Nice going...

    I'm allergic to mushrooms, but I do something similar on a spelt tortilla. I'm not sure if paleo allows any carbs at all, but if it does, they don't have very many.
