Best Pizza of My Life

Conversation with Billy this morning after my run:

Janae: B-dawg, will you pick up some fish-oil capsules because I am a six year old and can't do anything for myself and you are responsible and will remember this and I will forget about it in less than five minutes.

Billy: Yeah sure, how come?

Janae: I was talking to the girls that beat me in the last race and they all said they took it, I guess it is really good for you to take Omega-3 or something.

Billy: Cool. That is a really good idea, you are the smartest most awesomest thing ever and you really know your nutrition (K, I might have exaggerated on this line a little).

Doorbell rings 4 minutes later (NO JOKE)

UPS man drops off CHIA SEEDS.

Billy is creepy and reads my mind before I even do.  He ordered them last week without me even mentioning them and they are even better than fish oil for me (chia seeds are the richest plant source of Omega-3, they are used for hydration for athletes, help balance blood sugar along with many other great things!)  Be prepared to see these babies sprinkled on everything.

PS my arms and face are the same color.......if one looks blindly white compared to the other you should probably get your eyes checked out!


I showered and got ready today because I had a hot date.  Yep the madre took me to one of my Favorite Restaurants.  Terra Mia.  SO GOOD.  She even had a coupon for 10 buckaroo's off so all of the amazing food I am about to dangle in front of your eyes cost $12 (I even brought home leftovers for Billy's dinner......3 meals for $12 yep, I get a high from saving money, it is weird). Plus, it isn't a sit down restaurant with a waiter but my mom still left them a tip:) She is a good woman.


We started off with bruschetta for our appetizer.  They sprinkle magic dust on this.  I could probably eat 12 of these, so good.


This is the Caprese Salad.  I think every salad should include 4 ginormous pieces of bread drizzled in olive oil and lots of freshly made mozzarella.


This beauty would be the pesto pizza with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and chicken.  Heaven.  The dough is SUPER thin which is perfect because then you can eat more pieces without getting full and therefore more TOPPINGS and delicious pesto sauce.


She then DRAGGED me to the Cupcake Chic and forced me to get a chocolate cupcake with coconut frosting.

Now I am stuffed and will let my body digest all of this goodness while laying down and reading for my MENTAL HEALTH.

Hope you are having an amazing Thursday and I promise if you come hang out with me in Utah I will take you for some bruschetta and pesto pizza k!


Billy just texted me that he is taking me on a scooter date and to put on my riding boots........I may have squeeled, the scooter is my best friend and it is finally warm enough to ride!!!


Do you like motorcycles/scooters?

-Don't tell my mom but they are my absolute FAVORITE!!! I feel so free and love the adrenaline rush!!

Do you like bruschetta or Caprese salad?

-Obsessed.  I just found a Caprese Salad recipe here that I WILL be making for the Billster!

Is it warming up where you are?

-63 degrees baby!!!

Do you use coupons at restaurants?

-I LOVE using coupons at restaurants, I love eating out but I get the ultimate rush when I am eating the best food ever along with getting a killer deal!!

That pizza looks so amazingly good! I've never been on a motorcycle or a scooter. My little brother has a motorcycle, I should beg him for a ride next time I visit. It's not warming up here. Pouring down rain and only in the 40's. :(

I am so jealous! It is supposed to snow here tonight. 1-3 inches.

I love groupon for restaurants. Just make sure to tip on the amount pre-coupon!

Do you like motorcycles/scooters?

-I love how they look but they terrify me. My brother had a motorcycle and I wouldn't let him go faster than 30mph when I was on it.

Do you like bruschetta or Caprese salad?

-I loooooooooove bruschetta. Sadly, dairy allergies keep me from Caprese salad. =(

Is it warming up where you are?

-79F today!

Do you use coupons at restaurants?

I've been using Groupons when they come up for places I'll it. I love saving money!

Obviously, bruschetta and Caprese salad are some of the most delicious things on earth. I am obsessed with CHEESE, so the salad is a big DUH.

and... it's 40 here. boo!

I've been contemplating pizza for dinner all day but I'm pretty sure I must have bruchetta now :) Hope you're happy! Enjoy the scooting!

Yum! It IS warming up here, but that just means that the big-as-houses snow piles will melt and cause giant pools of yucky water everywhere.

We have snow today, ah! But it's supposed to be nicer tomorrow!!

I always use coupons at restaurants! Tomorrow I'm meeting a friend at Qdoba for lunch because we have buy one get one free coupons!! :)

It's nice here for Minnesota in March--40 and sunny!
Enjoy your scooter ride!

I love motorcycles/scooters and can't wait to get my own! I hope you have fun on your scooter date!

Is it weird that using coupons always makes me feel really nervous - like I'm doing something wrong? Groupons are helping me work through my issues but it's still weird for me.

YES for chia seeds!! I had some in my oatmeal for the first time today and they are the BEST:)

ARGH I am so JEALOUS of your spring break!! Looks like you are having the BEST time!! That pizza looks to die for! Oh, and I love your top and your hair looks AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS:)

Yay! it's 63 in Utah! That is cause for celebration. Have fun on the scooter! Did I mention that we are in the market for one as well? It's perfect for San Diego because we can use it year round! Did you buy yours used or new? We don't know where to start. :) I'm so excited.

Oh my gosh. You MUST post a picture of you on the scooter. I will laugh hard and maybe pee my pants a little.

At March 10, 2011 at 3:58 PM , Blogger amanda said...

I love chia and use them rather boringly. Smoothies, chia water, in cereal, ice cream, sloppy joes. I can't wait to see what you put them in.

At March 10, 2011 at 4:01 PM , Blogger Jen said...

That pizza and salad looks heavenly! I love pesto, it's my fav! I seriously can't wait until Saturday. It will be so great to see you again!
I have chia seeds and keep forgetting to use them. Guess I shouldn't put them in the top cupboard where I can't see them. Maybe I should put them by my chocolate stash!
I am LOVING this weather! Please let it stay!

I made homemade pizza dough today and just popped my veggietastic pizza in the oven! I wish it was warming up, but we just keep getting more snow. I love coupons for restaurants & groceries. I had a larabar coupon today that I used, and I found Fage yogurt for 84 cents - it made me so happy!

At March 10, 2011 at 4:06 PM , Blogger Little Miss Runshine said...

I have salba seeds!! They are comparable to chia seeds. I used to take fish oil pills too. The seeds taste much better!

I'm so jealous of your 63 deg!!! Its still chilly here!

I always love to use coupons!!

What a fun day with your mama! It's definitely warming up here in Texas - this is a great time of year here. It's been really windy though and I'm scared of wind on race day! I'd choose bruschetta over Caprese anyday, but what I really like is the pizza. Have a fun scooter date!!

At March 10, 2011 at 4:11 PM , Blogger Katy said...

That's so funny that you had that convo right before the chia seeds showed up! :)

At March 10, 2011 at 4:21 PM , Blogger Chelsea said...

Cold & rainy here. 12 storms in 15 days, or so the weathermen say.

I rode a scooter once - really wanted to buy one - but I crashed & can't shake the fear of crashing again. (Also my crash? I basically fell over while doing .25mph. whoops.)

At March 10, 2011 at 4:22 PM , Blogger Shannon said...

Okay, booking my flight to Utah right now!

Love bruschetta and Caprese! (didn't know that was the name of it til just now...)

I've never been on a motorcycle/scooter, though I've known several people who ride motorcycles.

It WAS warming up here, then got cold again, now it's slowly starting to warm up again.

And I love coupons, but can rarely find any good ones!

I have a scooter!!! I am going to be whipping it out here soon!

I have never been to Terra Mia..I'm going to have to pick it for lunch next week! :D Anything with tomatoes, bread, and mozzarella is awesomespice.

jealous of all your spring break activity!! if you love caprese then you MUST make this salad Not hard at all and DELIGHTFUL!

Um....yummy pizza :)

I love scooters, but I have never ridden one...I am so sheltered...I also love bruschetta especially when my mommy makes it :). Here in Montana we warmed to over 50 degrees today :) watch out everybody I might brake out bare legs today.

cha-cha-cha-CHIA! Am I the only one who sings that phrase from the obnoxious chia-pet commercials every time they hear the word chia???

Yay for 63 degrees! I'm so jealous. It was so pretty here this time last week, and today it's been spitting snow!

And chia seeds are the. best. So good in oats and to make puddings:)

I think there's supposed to be something special about the animal-based omegas that you can't get from plants though (OK OK I heard it on Dr. Oz once...) Don't remember exactly but you might look into!

I want to get me some chia seeds now. I have been looking into the glaucosine that you take.

Have you had any side effects?

I think I will take the pill form.

You are a great source of knowledge and are really clever and stuff, just like Billy said.

Janae-question for you-how do you eat chia seeds? What do you do with them? I have avoided fish oil capsules because they supposedly give you fish burps (so gross right?!?) but if chia seeds do the same thing, I'm thinking I should try them? Let me know how you eat them!!!

At March 10, 2011 at 5:24 PM , Blogger Shannon said...

THAT PESTO PIZZA NEEDS TO BE IN MY BELLY NOW. (Can you tell I haven't eaten dinner yet?) Nice deal!

What do chia seeds taste like? I've read so much about their superpowers but don't want to spend the money on them if I can't stand their taste.

my bf has a motorcycle and i LOVE going for rides in the country. it's so fun and relaxing! i can't wait til it's motorcycle season here!!

it warmed up today! -4C (25F). but it's gonna get cold again this weekend (-17C= 1 or 2 F). but i live in the coldest city with a population over 500,000 in the world! so i can't complain. haha.

i always try to use coupons but i usually end up forgetting. even if i buy a coupon book in the fall, most of the coupons i could've used go unused :(

At March 10, 2011 at 6:17 PM , Blogger Rene said...

Um, yes to both. So delish.
It's supposed to be 74 and sunny here tomorrow. I'm breaking out the shorts and exposing my pasty whiteness for all to see.
No coupons at restaurants but my hubby and I watched a show on extreme couponing (for groceries) and he thought it sounded like a great idea.
I'm coming to Utah in September so it's a date.

At March 10, 2011 at 6:20 PM , Blogger Cynthia said...

I totally want to go have pizza with you!!

I would LOVE to have a scooter! But the bf wants a motorcycle so he will get his before I get a scooter... which is ok with me cause then he can take me on motorcycle dates!! I can't imagine anything sweeter than me sitting behind him hugging him tight while we ride down the road.

I really like Caprese salads. There's this awesome pizza place here called Proto's and I love theirs.

It was almost to 60 today but very cloudy. Can't wait till it warms up tho!

I sometimes use coupons but not often.

It just might be possible that I actually brag about saving money. Like how I always shop at Trader Joe's but also know which stores all over the city will give me the best deal on the food we get!

I love chia seeds. so good. I also take fish oil pills now though. I don't see the harm in doing both.

I love riding on scooters, we had one before we moved but we had to sell, sad day:( You guys should check out u of a law in Tucson. I think tue weather is better than Phoenix because the average temp is 10 degrees cooler. It was in the 80s today and beautiful, perfect for getting some good sun:)

I started stalking your blog a few months ago and want you to know that you inspired me to train for and run a half marathon! It was awesome. I also die laughing whenever you talk about not washing your hair because I never do. Have you heard of dry shampoo? It's magic! You can go days and days without washing. Worth every penny. My blog isn't as cool as yours but feel free to stop by!

I actually really like riding on motorcycles. My first boyfriend had one and we used to go on long rides. It was fun, but scary at the same time, especially when he crashed a couple times...without me on it, thank God!

Bruschetta is amazing! Yummy city!

It's hovering in the 60s here in Sacramento, CA and it's fantastic! Some days of rain, but it's all warm :)

P.S. I just got back from doing a 5K run followed immediately by a spin class. I thought of you and how you do your runs and spin on the same day. That's some hard stuff to do and I think I sweated out like 5 lbs of sweat, but I love the endorphins! You're such a good influence! :)
