Let me just begin by saying that it’s totally the little things in life that bring the most joy. Sure, the big things bring joy too. But it’s the little things that bring about the day-to-day happiness. That all adds up.
Today’s little thing?
Pumpkin spice coffee at Dunkin Donuts (shh, don’t tell Starbucks that when it comes to pumpkin spice, I prefer Dunkin).
Now don’t even go thinking that it’s too early for pumpkin. If I could, I would drink this stuff year round. But then again that would take away some of the novelty and excitement that it’s reappearance brings about, so maybe I’m kind of glad that it’s only around for one season. Yes, I love to contradict myself all in one breath. It’s okay.
I may just start including “today’s little slice of happiness” into each post. Sounds like fun to me!
Something else that makes me happy? Simple, healthy, and delicious meals. Emphasis on the simple because I’m little miss simpleton when it comes to my eats.
I love broccoli, meatless meatball, and spicy marinara bowls. They're one of my go-to meals when I'm in a pinch or when I just don't feel like cooking (more often than not, oops).
Luckily, I had a package of flat out wraps stowed in the freezer – they make the perfect thin and crispy pizza crust.
This little gem also made a wonderful addition to my broccoli bowl pizza.
It’s as easy as:
1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the flat out wrap for approximately 8 minutes (until it’s nice and crispy) flipping once half-way through.
Watch your wrap carefully because there’s a thin line between crispy and burnt (I know from experience).
2.) Spread the baked wrap generously with goat cheese (laughing cow cheese would be good as well).
3.) Next, top the pizza with a mixture of meatless meatballs, broccoli, and marinara sauce. Sprinkle it all with a little nutritional yeast.
4.) Finally bake the pizza for another couple of minutes.
5.) Shamelessly devour. Don’t be afraid to lick your fingers – it may be necessary.
Boom. Dinner (or lunch) is served.
What’s your go-to simple meal?
Is there something little that made your day?
Have a great one!
