In the past I have joined a couple of different gyms. Due to moving and/or rare use I ended up ending those memberships. For the past couple of months I have been trying to get in shape on my own via exercise DVDs. However, I'm really not disciplined enough and lacked motivation to really see any improvements. This past week I ended up joining a local gym. It's not one of the nation-wide chains and I feel like we're paying a fortune for me to go. However, it's really close to the house, they have a pool, tennis courts, and tons of exercise classes. They even have a women's only room with weight and exercise machines. Even with the cost, my husband has been very supportive of my decision. I'm not going to diet on a program but I'm hoping to cook a little healthier for the family.
Pizza is pretty much a weekly dinner menu staple in our house. I love finding new pizza recipes. When I saw this one in All You magazine I thought it sounded like a good vegeterian pizza. My husband ended making this one for us. It was quick and easy and really tasty! I liked getting the extra veggies into my diet! Of course we made a plain pizza for the kids.
recipe slightly adapted from All You , November 2011
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 store bought pizza dough
8 ounces Yukon gold potatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 10-oz. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
8 ounces shredded Gruyère
