BBQ Chicken Pizza

Hi! Hope your Monday was ok (whether you were working or not!). I wanted to thank you all for your protein powder suggestions! Since a few people were also looking for this info, this is a summary of the responses:

Jenn uses Biochem Vanilla and Jay Robb

Chickpea uses rice protein by Nutribiotic (chocolate)

Mizfit uses all kinds including pea, hemp, whey, soy

VeggieGirl uses Living Harvest Hemp Protein Powder

B_Hlthy recommends whey Pure Protein Brand and Designer Whey Brand

Lauren uses whey protein in her shakes

Heather uses Jay Robb's whey protein powders (she said Chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry are all very good, the pina colada or tropical dreamsicle flavors are yucky).

Mark uses LTF protein powder

Fitness Surfer uses Elite by Dymatize nutrition

I am planning to try a few varieties and will let you know my thoughts!!

As for my day, I did have to work today and it was busyyyy. After work, Josh and I had to do some house stuff. I know I have been very vague about all of our house junk going on right now and promise to give more info at a later time. Right now is just super stressful!

Any who, after the house stuff, I came home and did some baking (Tina bars) and made up a dinner of bbq chicken pizza. It turned out sort of eh...I am going to use a different sauce next time:

Still quite a bit of house stuff to do tonight! 2 days until the LOST premier! What are you looking forward to this week?

looking forward to going to NYC to see a martha stewart show taping on thursday!! woo!!! i'm glad you asked the question about protein powders... because I was having the same question. When do you plan on using it? and for what exact purpose? i am so clueless about protein powders!

Esi said...

Ooh, sorry your day was so crazy and the pizza was only ok. I am mostly looking forward to watching the Inaguration tomorrow and of course Gossip Girl tonight (like Nicole).

lesley said...

I think your pizza looks good!

I'm looking forward to having nothing going on Tuesday evening of Thursday evening, so I can get stuff done around the house or do whatever I want after work!

I don't know what kind of house stuff you're doing, but if it's remodeling or anything like that, I understand!!! We bought a very outdated house five months ago and it is very stressful!

just me said...

this week i'm looking forward to my 4 day weekend!!! because i have blogger fun to look forward to!!!

Pizza looks good - what am I looking forward to?!?! the weekend - lol.

Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) said...

Your pizza doesn't look eh. Looks pretty tasty to me. Thanks for compiling the protein list. I'm interested in trying hemp protein myself.

I hope all the house stuff works out. Anything house related can get stressful. I never knew so much went into home buying. It's almost too much for me...makes me want to go back to renting!

CANNOT wait for Lost. So excited!

emilydh211 said...

The pizza looks great! but then again everything you make does! I always find it so hard to cook the right portion for just myself, how do you do it?!

I am looking forward to the inauguration tomorrow and the weekend! haha

have a wonderful night!

You're a Lost fan too? Every week we have a group of friends get together for dinner and Lost and this week we are hosting. Too bad I've been pretty sick, my husband will have to make the chili...under my direction of course! :-)

Good luck with all of the house stuff! I asked about all of the analyst stuff because I work at a private equity and the boyfriend is an analyst at a real estate private equity firm. Small world!
