Thai stir-fry pizza on cauliflower crust

 
 

Welcome, snow-dog style
There's never a dull moment around my house with the two snow hounds. I mean, have you ever gotten a welcome like the one pictured in the photo above? It makes you feel pretty special, provided you don't get knocked over by all the leaping and jumping about.

I have learned to leave all my stuff (purse, grocery bags, etc.) out in the car until the greeting is over. It's far better to have your hands free to "dance" with the duo, rather than being jostled about. 

Thai stir-fry pizza on cauliflower crust
Ritalin Boy, my husband, often says I am a smart women. I guess meeting the duo, hands free, might be an example of that. But when it comes to candida, I definitely have been a slow learner. It was only recently that I discovered I need to be taking more betaine HCL to correct my low stomach acid. Individuals with candida issues usually have low stomach acid and I am no exception. Without stomach acid, candida can continue to flourish. Read more here http://catsinthekitchen.blogspot.com/p/low-stomach-acid.html

I have been taking this supplement for some time but have always held back on how much I took. I guess the only explanation was that the word "acid" made me extra cautious. Now, I am taking as much as I need. My stomach and sinuses feel better.

With my stomach feeling better, I can easily polish off a nice meal of Thai stir-fry pizza on cauliflower crust, ACD-Phase 1.
 
Here's what you need for a single serving:
1 cauliflower flatbread (get the recipe here: http://catsinthekitchen.blogspot.com/2012/12/cauliflower-crust-pizza-with-hemp.html)
Stir-fry veggies (1/2 carrot in matchstick pieces, 4 asparagus stalks cut into one-inch pieces, handful of shredded red cabbage, 2 green onions in half-inch pieces, 6 snap peas)
Raw veggies for garnish (sliced radishes, cucumber slices,)
Sunbutter dressing (get the recipe here: http://catsinthekitchen.blogspot.com/2012/02/pad-thai-spaghetti-squash.html) Note: There will be lots of dressing leftover for salads, etc.

Here's what you do:
In a large skillet, heat 1 T. olive oil. Stir fry veggies until tender crisp.
Spread sunbutter dressing on the flatbread. Top with stir-fry mixture and enjoy.

Or make it a salad. Place stir-fry veggies on a bed of greens and drizzle on dressing. Slice up the flatbread and serve on the side.

How about dessert? Try a grain-free carob brownie for ACD-Phase 1. Get the recipe here: http://catsinthekitchen.blogspot.com/2013/01/grain-free-carob-brownies-with-fudgy.html

Cauliflower is one of many types of vegetables found in the Brassica oleracea species, more specifically in the family Brassicaceae. There are other related vegetables, which include collard greens, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, and cabbage, which are simple variants on the same species, but still have different cultivar groups.
