Eggplant Tikka Masala Pizza

February 10, 2015

Transitioning to a plants based diet has been gradual for me and filled with challenges.

I have my moments where I eat like a certified vegan and then other moments when I crave something from an animal.

I’m not the only one struggling.  It seems like you are too.

Here’s what I’ve noticed, cooked and  learned that may help you.

Honey! This thang right here!!!

I created this out of a strong need to eat something I enjoy.

  1. “Thou shalt not eat nasty food”

When I was a student at Spelman, I used to love brunch!  Actually I still do. But back then it was real special.  For starters I got to wake up late. (Yes Lawd)  And then I got to start my day in Spelman’s cafeteria with waffles or biscuits and lots and lots and lots of syrup and butter.

At the age of 8, I worked diligently in school and kept up with my weekly readings so that I could win a complimentary Pizza Hut Personal Pan Supreme Pizza.

I think I won almost every month. There was something about that buttery crispness when you bit into the crust.  Each bite was loaded with sausage, ham, onions, bell peppers, olives, rich tomato sauce and mounds of gooey melted cheese.

At the beginning of my weight loss journey, I became a vegetarian for a year. The benefits were so amazing that I continued on to become vegan for another six months. I even took it a bit further and completed a two week stint as a vegan raw foodist. Raw foods were probably the BEST my body has ever felt on food . . . but the time that it took to prepare did not fit my lifestyle.

Even though, I was enjoying my clean, green eating . . .

I started to miss chicken wings.
