Dances With Buffalos

Today started with a sweaty RIPPED class at the gym. I made some blueberry pancakes for breakfast, and clearly we have missed the carbs. 
Alex went to Fitness Sports today to get fitted for some new shoes for his crazy feet. He had surgery for plantar fasciitis last June, so he needs his shoes to fit perfect. The salesperson there let him try on about 100 pairs and helped him the entire time. I would do business there any day over any other shoe store. 
This afternoon we went to a wildlife refuge a few miles from Des Moines. It had a beautiful 2 mile trail through the prairie. 
It was a beautiful day. It also had a driving path through the bison and elk sanctuary. They weren't super close to the road, but it was cool to see. 

For dinner we made portabella pizzas. They were awesome. Start with 4 portabella caps and clean them out. 

We dried them out a bit with paper towels as they will release a lot of moisture. 
For the filling:
1/8 cup pizza sauce each
Oregano, basil, red pepper flakes to taste
7g armour turkey pepperoni each
Diced bell peppers and Jalepeno 
Top with:
14g Velveeta shreds pepper jack each

Put them on a pizza pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. 

They are a great way to have pizza without the calories and carbs from crust. For 2 of them it is 175 calories.
