Sunset Beach Hang with Grana

Last week Lindsay and I headed down to the beach just before sunset. We enjoyed the quiet little trek down through the empty dirt path just west of Kits beach. It was a windy but warm night and it was just what we needed after a long week of busy-busy-busy with the Market we've been planning for this weekend! We sat on the warm rocks and picked blackberries to our hearts content. I love this little beach for this type of night, it's not great for swimming because it's a bit rocky, but it's quiet and a great place to sneak a bottle of wine and a pizza ;)

We've quickly fallen in love with this brand called Grana. Their clothing is high quality and affordable. I love reading their story and their way of running their business, you can read more in detail on their website here. They work directly with the fabric mills and are very clear about the process of where their fabrics come from and where they're made. I really love and appreciate that. Their clothes are basic, classic, timeless! Every time I go on their website I learn something new, they share about each fabric that the pieces are made with, some history and where they source it from. Their transparency is so refreshing! We were so excited to pick out a style of their brand new line of bathing suits that they just launched this month. The mix and match styles and colours make it a lot of fun. They fit true to size and the fabric is unlike anything I've felt before in a bathing suit (Italian Sensitive fabric!) no wires or padding but fits like a glove. 

We enjoyed the most beautiful sunset and as always wondered why we don't come down here as often! So lucky to live where we do.

Cauliflower Pizza!

YOU GUYS! 

I was so so excited to finally try out this cauliflower pizza! My roommate is gluten intolerant, but loves pizza! I made this for her one night, and we both agreed it was better than regular pizza - mainly because it's a lot lighter than regular pizza crust, and it's delicious! WIN WIN!

We based our cauliflower crust recipe off of Detoxinista - we changed up a couple ingredients, using parmesan as well as mozzarella in the crust, rather than goat cheese. 

1 Head of Cauliflower
1/2 Cup Parmesan
1 Cup Mozzarella
1 Egg - beaten
1 TBS Oregano
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat your oven to 400F, and then chop up all your ingredients! We chopped the cauliflower into chunks and then threw it in a food processor. A vitamix would work best if you have one, but we had to chop ours up in sections because our blender was small. You basically want your cauliflower to resemble a sort of rice-like substance.

Once it is all chopped up, cook it up like you would rice! Fill a pot with about an inch of water, bring to a boil, and then add the cauliflower. Cover and let cook for 4-5 minutes. Strain the rice and plop it into the center of a large piece of cheese cloth or a clean dish cloth. Pull up the sides and strain all of the water through. Squeeze until you can't get any more water through.  *Careful because the water is hot! I waited about 20 minutes until it cooled.

Add the cheese, oregano, beaten egg and mix mix mix until it resembles a dough. Flatten it out on a layer of parchment paper, and throw that goodness in the oven! Cook for about 35-40 minutes.

Throw on your preferred pizza ingredients and put it back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.    We sprinkled olive oil on the dough and added rosemary goat cheese, with prosciutto and brussels sprouts. It was so yummy!

Yay for HEALTHY PIZZA!!! I was surprised at how easy it was to make! I can't wait to make it again! Such a great dough substitute.
