And just like that, summer is closing in.  The school year has started (or soon will) and fall is in the air.  This time of year has the tendency to overwhelm us.  Getting ourselves and our families back into a routine is a task much easier said than done.  While you may still be scrambling to scratch off the last few summer bucket list items, I’m sure you’ve also thought ahead for what’s to come.  Ball games, dance recitals, practices and more- getting a wholesome meal on the table at the end of the day is never an easy feat.  But before you resort to pre-cooked convenience foods, consider the short-cut creations that help make putting a nutritious home-cooked meal on the table a reality.

Try this recipe for “Crustless Meat Lovers Pizza”.  We love the steam pouch cauliflower crumbles as a quick crust alternative to the classic meat lovers pizza recipe that every family enjoys.  If you’re consuming fewer carbs or trying to add more veggies into your diet- give this protein packed recipe a try! It’s simple to make and can be on the table in under 30 minutes!
