What I Ate Wednesday: Skillet Socca Pizza, Shamrock Shake, Green Juice, Sprouted Pecan Butter

I really wanted to link up to Jenn’s What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) link party this week, so it helped me be motivated to try and bring a little variety into my (food) life.

I met a friend on Monday at Breathe in Pittsford (the other Lisa B!) for a little browsing and a green juice. I didn’t photog the juice (y’all know what juice looks like—and for some pretty ones, go look at Spabettie’s pictures!), but it made me motivated to juice the loveliness in my fridge.

Green Juice!

For some reason, I’m also motivated to make some sprouted nut butters—oh yes, my juicer will do that for me too!

Sprouted Pecan butter (with a tiny bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger added)
This stuff is awesome! So far, I've eaten some straight from the jar and also added it to two green smoothies

It’s March. Do you know what that means?

Shamrock Shake - avocado, coconut milk, mint extract, vanilla, stevia, ice (I think it's awesome. Joe doesn't)

Last, I made a skillet socca pizza that was ah-mazing! I used Rice Shreds for cheese instead of Daiya, because I think tastes better. It’s a departure from my anti-candida diet. But I was celebrating! I’ve decided I need to splurge occasionally so I do not implode or feel restricted (I really haven’t felt restricted at all so far).

Socca pizza w/ tomatoes, spring mix, mushrooms...and Rice Shreds (not a PIP friendly food, but it was a splurge!)
Next time, I think I'll flip the socca before I add toppings so it will get a little more crispy

On Splurging. I stopped at Solia, a clothing store, on my way home from Breathe, and I could not resist a new pair of William Rast jeans. I will need new shoes now. And a shirt. It’s a slippery slope!

I’m looking forward to getting very focused on my work and a project today and tomorrow night, so that I can be a little bit carefree on Friday (initially I thought I’d have free time on Thursday too…a little too optimistic I guess)!

How is your week shaping up?

  1. I'm making this the second I get ahold of the flour! amazing! i've been craving socca for weeks and i've never even tried it! haha!

    thanks for the bday wishes (and the pasta!!!!!) and for linking up! you rock!

  2. Wow. YUM! I want to come and eat with you. I've never heard of rice shreds.

    I miss my kids but I'm staying positive and busy so I don't think about it too much!

    I love your version of the shamrock shake! How fun. And the socca pizza looks perfect. I agree- I try to eat about 85-90% clean. Week is going ok! Just trying to mend the pup!

  4. Your socca pizza looks delicious!

    I usually make “Shamrock Shakes” this time of year as well — although I like the addition of avocado — I usually throw in some spinach for some color instead!

    Your socca looks delicious. I think I'm going to have some tonight!

    P.S. I LOVE William Rast jeans. I had to toss my only pair because they kept ripping at the crotch! lol I really want another pair!

    aw! what a sweet surprise to see when I come here to visit – a sweet shout out to my daily juice 🙂 <3 thank you, my friend!

    Mmm, yum! your socca pizza looks better than mine ever do, so there's that!! 😀 your shamrock shake sounds awesome too – I need to try one of those!

    Happy Wednesday!

  7. Do you have a Champion? I make my nut butters in the Vitamix which works well – although it never TASTES like the roasted rancid stuff…. a shame. And sprouted too – you go girl! That takes some extra prep time.

    Good luck on your busy week!

  8. I know this is totally unhealthy, but my favorite thing at McDonald's is their Shamrock shakes. I wil definitely have to try out your version, since it's much healthier than vanilla ice cream and mint flavoring!!! I just love mint!

  9. I have a Greenstar, which is really similar to a Champion with the twin gear

    setup—so it is super easy to make nut butters. Still haven't figured out a

    way to add the “roasted” flavor 🙂

  10. Until I stopped eating stuff like that, my friend and I used to go and get a

    shamrock shake that was 3/4 shamrock and 1/4 chocolate milkshake….SO

    good… My homemade one is good, but there's nothin' like the real thing!

  11. That Socca pizza sounds great! I'm definitely going to have to give that a go! This week is getting better as it goes (the temperature keeps rising along with it, so there's been lots of outdoor time!)

  12. glad you had a couple of splurges, lisa! (the rice shreds and the jeans). fun things to do during your march break week!
    sounds like your week is well-planned with room for work and time for relaxation. awesome! my week is going well – enough to do without feeling crazy busy. a good balance!
    i've tried daiya cheese and really liked it; i will have to look for rice shreds…not sure if they're in my local stores (?).
    sorry joe did not like your smoothie – it's so perfectly festive for this week!

  13. Shammrock shake? Awesome on so many levels!

    My week is better, since I'm not dying of the flu anymore and my evening class got canceled!! WOO HOO!!

    Hope your day is fab as well!!

  14. Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn

    Ahhh yummy, pecan butter!! I am going to try it on Saturday morning mmk:)

    Slash that shamrock smoothie is WAY more healthy than the fast food alternative! And socca pizza is my FAVORITE!! I am making it for din din tomorrow:)

  15. I would love to see your recipe for Sprouted Pecan Butter–that sounds just fabulous! And the pizza looks super delightful, too 🙂 I have yet to make my own nut butter, but I definitely need to jump on that bandwagon!

  16. William Rast is my FAVORITE!!! I live for the Savoy trousers. Also, I'm so intrigued by the socca pizza! I'd love to try that sometime soon… eyes are officially peeled for the garbanzo bean flour.

  17. Yes, they are crazy awesome 🙂 I just went to get them shortened, and my

    little turkish tailor guy did them on the spot so I can wear them tonight!
