Now that I’m incorporating dairy back into my diet, I have to admit, there were a few foods I missed! Cheese & Yogurt. While I was able to find a decent substitute for yogurt, soy cheese just didn’t cut it. So on my first day back with dairy, my friend and I went to Stuzzi, a local pizza place here in Richmond. Check out this amazing pizza, with homemade mozzarella!

My friend is also a vegetarian, so he and I split a delicious veggie pizza. It was topped with artichokes, spinach, mushrooms, and eggplant. SO good! What do you like on your pizza?

Over the weekend, I went to Bakers Crust and enjoyed a Panini. I forgot how much I love paninis!

To recreate this amazing panini at home, follow this recipe:

Spinach & Mozzarella Panini

  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 tbsp pesto (I like this one)
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1 slice mozzarella cheese
  • 2 slices tomato
  • olive oil
  • basil (optional)

Lightly coat the bread with olive oil, and spread the inside with pesto. Add in the spinach, basil, cheese and tomato, and put toast either in a george foreman grill, a panini press, or even just a skillet.

Does anyone have any other panini recipes? I feel like the possibilities are endless! I can’t wait to make some variations of this. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you’re all enjoy the weekend!
