Waste not, want not
I was taught all my life not to waste things, especially food. Thanks to my mom, I was always a member of the clean plate club, and I learned to like leftovers.
They are even better when you find inventive ways to re-serve them. In this case, I just tossed all that was left of our pizza night into a bowl with some sprouted rice to create a pizza rice bowl (I know; not so creative. But, I was busy this weekend and needed something in a hurry).
However, I did have some time to make a more presentable meal out of the leftovers prior to the rice bowl. If you want to see what I made (and how I set up my old-school dehydrator to make it), check out my We Like It Raw post for this week. It should be on there later today or tomorrow (more likely tomorrow).
And, while you're there, you can read about Dhru's "Day in the Life" article, featured in this issue of "Get Fresh" (which is now available at Whole Foods). The rest of the WLIR squad, including yours truly, will be posting what we do on an average day throughout the week. I'm scheduled for tomorrow, so you might have to wait until next week to see my magical leftover makeover post (I didn't think about that; I guess we'll just have to wait and see).
By the way, remember how I talked about wanting to see "Mystic Pizza" again? Well, it was OnDemand last night, so I watched it. Obviously, I was out of pizza, as well as the toppings, but I still enjoyed every minute of it :-)
