Happy almost New Year!
One of my goals for 2019 is to definitely get back on track with healthier eating habits. I’m still going to have my “cheat meals” but enjoying foods I love in moderation is going to be key for me this year.
Meatless Mondays are one of my favorite series on my blog.
I think incorporating more meatless meal options into my diet, will help keep my cravings for unhealthy food to a minimum! This week’s meatless Monday post is Pear & Goat Cheese Naan Pizza with honey. Just having the word “pizza” in the title of this recipe makes me feel like I’m having a cheat meal.
I know this technically isn’t the healthiest option, but there’s fruit in it right??
I came across this recipe on Pinterest & looked like an easy enough recipe to me. This recipe is probably best as an appetizer- the goat cheese is too creamy & heavy for me to eat this as a main course. The honey mixed with the goat cheese is the perfect combination of sweet and savory. The carmelized onions adds another layer of sweetness and texture to the pizza.
