Meats2U Sweet Potato Flatbread Pizza

Follow me on Instagram for more on my Heath and Fitness journey here @thyroidfitnesschic

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am working on adding more recipes for The Camp Transformation Center Challengers. If you have no idea what that is, don’t worry about it the recipe is still valuable to you! Just avoid the term FTDI, it’s what we used to describe approved items for the program. 

This flatbread recipe requires only two ingredients: rolled oats and a sweet potato. Anyone who is eating clean should know this basic staple recipe ASAP because this was literally game-changing for me and I am so excited to share with you! I just finished three days of no carbs for carb cycling so I might be hyping up this recipe up a bit, bare with me here. This recipe can be used to make pizzas, wraps,tacos, sweet cinnamon strips, and so much more. 

Some people like orange sweet potatoes/yams and some people like yellow/white ones and quite frankly I’m not quite sure what the correct term each one is called but I favor the yellow ones! Either way you way you it turns out delicious. 
I started avoiding processed carbs such as bread or store made tortillas and switched to primarily just brown rice, quinoa, sweet potatoes, or rolled oats as my carb source about a year ago. Out of these I have managed to get extremely creative! Unless I am eating “cheat meals” when I am off the challenge processed carbs are not a main part of my diet because I don’t like the way my body processes them and I have been making a conscious effort to limit the amount of processed food as a part of my lifestyle change. But let’s be real there’s only so many rolled oat tortillas a girl can eat without getting bored. I’m actually pretty mad at myself because a variation of this recipe has been in front of my face for almost a year now so take my word and trust me when I say this is amazing and a must try! 
If you do not like sweet potatoes I am assuming a regular potato would work as a substitute but have not tried it myself! Please note this will not be FTDI for anyone on a 20-lb challenge if you do it use a sweet potato or yam!


Ingredients:

1 sweet potato or yam

1 1/4 c oat flour (rolled oats mixed in a Nutri bullet or a blender)

Directions:

1. Steam a sweet potato for 5 to 7 minutes in your microwave (poke holes in the potato with a fork wrap and a damp paper towel)

2. After cooking peel off the skin and measure 1 c portion into a bowl. Mash with a fork

3. Add 1 cup of oat flour to the mixture and continue to mix with a fork until a dough forms.

4. Divide dough into six pieces* roll into  logs. 

5. In between parchment paper dusted with flour roll out each piece and set aside individually between layers of paper towels to keep them moist and not stuck together. 


6. Place your flatbread on cast iron pan (cast Iron is best results but I didn’t use mine) and cook on both sides. It will start to puff up and you will know that it’s ready!


7. Place your cooked flat bread in between towels as you go so it does not dry up while you finish cooking!

8. Enjoy!

If you’re going to make pizza than make them a little bit more crispy so you just bake your ingredients in the oven to warm them up! I used Meats2U Ez Prep garlic seasoned poultry to make meatballs in a pan stovetop and Walden farms zero calorie BBQ sauce to make my FTDI pizza. Make sure you only use veggies on your list if you are on a challenge!

Update: I’ve been experimenting and they are amazing with cinnamon sprinkled on top with honey or for Challengers Walden Farms syrup to be FTDI

I also made a spinach scramble and used the flatbread to make a breakfast burrito…so basically I ate these for breakfast lunch and dinner! Let’s see how long it takes for me to get burnt out on these! 

*FTDI NOTE: If you are on the Camp Transformation Center FTDI diet weigh the whole dough and divide accordingly. I weighed mine out and it was about 12 ounces so I divided it and double checked my portions were 2 ounces which is correct for women’s 20lb 6 week challenge but remember it depends what challenge and if you’re male or female portion!

Meats2U Meatloaf Mealprep – FTDI

Sundays in my house are for mealprep! I’ve written a ton of posts on the tips and tricks of mealprepping 101 (see here) but I am going to try and share more recipes now!  This one is super easy and perfect if you don’t feel like doing a lot of work.

(FTDI is just a term from The Camp Transformation Center saying the ingredients are okay to eat on the meal plan)

My meal preps always are broken down into 3 main groups Protein, Carbs, and Veggies.

  • Protein: Meats2u  2 packs 16oz Garlic Herb Ground Poultry
  • Carbs: Next 3 days no carbs (carb cycling)
  • Veggies: Spinach,Riced Broccoli, Brussel sprouts

FTDI NOTES: This could be considered just a protein serving the way it is. To be a “meal” you must add a FTDI carb such as rice or  quinoa.

Fitness and Fighting the sickness 

Happy Sunday!  I’ve been fighting off the flu for the past week. The weather is Southern California has been crazy, well for us! The rain and cold has definitely brought back cold and flu season. Being at the gym all the time with all the people makes it a lot easier for me to get sick. I was fighting it off for a while but finally it happened, I got sick!

A couple days after I started feeling pretty under the weather, I was super excited that I received my Relax Teami tea! It was perfect timing because it contains Lavender Flower, Chamomile, Lemon grass, Orange peel, Valerian Root extract. These plants help relax tight muscles and reduce insomnia. It also contains potassium, calcium and vitamin B which strengthen the immune system, prevent colds, flus and a variety of other illnesses. Teami Relax is caffeine-free and should be consumed right before bed!

This is the first time that I’ve been consistently drinking herbal tea, as I shared in an earlier post, and I love it! I used to be a huge coffee drinker which was too much for my system all the time but if you are like me and have thyroid issues (like lack of one) you know sometimes well most of the time..we just need that extra boost. I have been doing the 30day detox regime every change of season and then switch over to the Alive tea for energy and now have my Relax tea for the PM. I definitely wanted to share the holiday promo code to get you guys some extra savings!

Detox pack: AM and PM tea:

Detox AM Tea “SKINNY”


http://www.teamiblends.com/Teami_Detox_30_Days_Pack

The AM tea is loose leaf so If you don’t have an infuser this tumbler has a screen in it so I add the tea and water in the tumblr and sip on it all day by refilling it with water. That’s how I drink mine because I’m to inpatient to wait for the infuser every morning and it’s more portable on the go than a mug!

 Let me know what you think! Have you ever tried a detox program and stuck with it? What works best for you? 

Thought you guys would enjoy this….my fiancé saw me taking pictures of my tea while he was watching the supercross from the couch and I got a text message with this pic haha! This is what why I love him! 

Chocolate Superfood Coffee 

Yes, you read that right. Chocolate coffee! One of my trainers was always talking about his “magic” coffee and a couple days into 2017 I was already feeling like a regular cup of joe wasn’t doing it for me! So I decided to experiment! Navitas Naturals is my go-to Superfood source because of their quality, availability, and the price point is always pretty spot on! 

The following recipe is for 1 serving which I prepared 5 into individual ziplock bags an froze at the beginning of my week! 

Ingredients: 

3/4 c cold brew (add when blending smoothie, not to bag)

1/2 tsp Navitas Naturals caco powder 

1 tsp coconut oil or Navitas Naturals cacao butter 

1/2 organic banana 

12 Almonds raw

1 tbs Navitas Naturals green coffee powder 

Vanilla bean to taste 

Pinch Of Pink Himalayan salt 

Directions

1. Add the banana first to the bag, then the coconut oil (room temp)z

2. Then sprinkle the powders, pinch of salt, and almonds into bag.

3. This was my first time working with a vanilla bean so I had to ask my fiancé to show me! It’s a good idea to watch a video of you need insuctions. Click here to see a tutorial on how. The outer shell is not the part you want to eat! I got a good sized bean at Sprouts for 3$. I just used the edge of a spoon to add a dot of the bean to the ziplock bag contents.

4. Freeze overnight.

5. Empty bag contents into a Nutri Bullet or blender and add the cold brew coffee, blend until smooth! Enjoy!
