National Pizza Day

Happy National Pizza Day to my fellow ‘za lovers out there! What I really want to know is do you prefer deep dish or thin crust? Surprisingly, as a Chicago girl born and raised, I choose thin crust! (I know, who am I?). But, I do enjoy a good deep dish from Lou Malnati’s every now and then.

In honor of National Pizza Day, I wanted to share an easy and delicious 3-Cheese Gluten Free Pizza recipe.

Ingredients: 

  • Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust
  • Shaved Parmesan Cheese
  • Grated Manchego Cheese
  • Grated Romano Cheese
  • Dei Fratelli Pizza Sauce (or your other favorite brand)
  • Basil leaves
  • Pepper
Directions:
Add toppings to pizza crust and bake in the over at 375 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes.

Happy pizza eating!

XOXO,

Why I Budget For Self-Care

We all know the saying, “The best things in life are free.” However, I’ve come to the realization that there are some things that I spend money on to aid in self-care and I’m perfectly okay with that. I find it super important to set aside money for a “self-care” #treatyoself fund every month and quite honestly, it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made.

I’m a big advocate for self-care and no that doesn’t mean spending a ton of money to achieve that. For me, my self-care fund is used for many different things because self-care comes in a lot of different forms (and our needs change day to day). One week it might be spent on a latte or a new book (or audio book because they’re my new fav) and the next it could be spent on a therapy session.

Investing in yourself and mental well-being is crucial. I highly encourage everyone to take a moment to think about what self-care looks like for them and how they can budget and incorporate more of it in your life (whether that be budgeting your time or money).

Don’t forget to #treatyoself

XOXO,
