Dance as though no one is watching

You  know summer is on it’s way when you have fresh, sweet and juicy pineapples at the farmers market.

We have been enjoying pineapple the last few weeks and it inspired me to make this dish.

I love eating pizza but I don’t like the bloated feeling I get afterwards.

I made my own healthier version for a quick weeknight dinnger and it turned out well.

I received samples of Thomas Bagel thins and I used the whole wheat thin bagels as my based for a thin crust pizza.

Thin Crust Pineapple Pizza (for one)

- 2 tablespoon marinara sauce (I used low sodium from Trader Joe’s)

- half a cup of fresh pineapple, diced small

-3 oz chicken breast (or any meat you want to add i.e. ham, turkey)

- 2 tablespoon diced red onions

- cheese

Spread the marinara sauce on top of the bagel thins. Put all the toppings and bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until the bagel thins are toasted/crisp on the edge and the cheese have melted.

The mozzarella cheese melted just perfectly.

Fresh ingredients are the best.

Crispy pizza crust. Love the crunch in each bite.

Using the whole wheat bagel thins for this recipe was great because it kept my dinner light (no food coma afterwards), it served it’s purpose of being a thin pizza crust and the fact that it’s whole wheat, makes it a better option.

Dance as though no one is watching

{This is part of my 30 Days of reflection. Things that make me happy}

You know the saying “dance as though no one is watching you”? That’s me.

I’ve always love to dance. Growing up I performed on stage and at family gatherings.

Dancing makes me happy. The beats and the melody makes me happy. It’s a stress reliever for me to go out dancing with friends and just dance the night away.

I’ll dance anywhere. I’ll dance if there’s music I like. I’ll dance especially if there’s a dance floor. All I need is a few beats and my feet starts moving. I can’t help it.

I don’t mind dancing alone, in my own little corner.

I can dance with a partner.

I can dance in a group.

I can two step and line dance.

I just want to dance and have fun.

(In Jennifer Lopez’s words……)

Break a sweat on the floor
Yeah we work on the floor
Don’t stop keep it moving
Put your drinks up
Pick your body up and drop it on the floor
Let the rhythm change your world on the floor

{You know how the song goes}

Now pu-pu-pu-pu-pump it up
And back it up like a Tonka truck

Dance the night away
Live your life ,and stay young on the floor
Dance the night away

Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor

Go out there, move and just dance. Don’t judge yourself or anyone else.

Who cares who is watching.

You are dancing for you and not for anyone else.

  1. I love those bagel thins! I use them a lot for Josh’s sandwiches for lunch and for various purposes at dinner (they make fun croutons when cut up and baked too :)). Your pizza looks fantastic. Makes me CRAVE fresh pineapple. And yes, dancing truly is freeing. I need to get out there and boogie soon.
