👨🏼‍🍳 DIRECTIONS:
Vegan Pizza Dough:
1.) In a bowl, mix warm water, yeast and 1 tbsp flour. Let it sit for a few minutes to activate.
2.) Add the flour, salt, herbs and garlic and olive oil and mix in. Add another 3 tbsp flour and mix in. Get your hands in there to mix and knead for a few seconds into a soft slightly sticky dough. (Add another tbsp flour if needed). Gather the dough into a ball and let it sit for 15 minutes in a warm place.
3.) Add 1/2 tsp oil over the dough and spread with your hands. Gather the dough into a ball and place on parchment lined sheet.
4.) Use a bit of flour to spread the dough into a 13 to 14 inch size oval. Spread it depending on how thick or thin you want the crust to be. Keep the edges thicker than the center.
Creating your Vegan Pizza:
1.) Mix all the spices really well.
Drain the chickpeas and transfer to a bowl. Add garlic, onion, salt and olive oil to the chickpeas and toss well to coat. Set aside.
2.) Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F / 220ºc. Shape the pizza crust. Spread the crust to about 14 inch size to make a thin crust large pizza. Brush with passata and olive oil. Spread the spices mix and chickpeas mix.
3.) Place sliced onions on top. Drizzle some of the pesto. 4.) Bake for 18 minutes/180C.
5.) Garnish with rocket salad. Drizzle some pesto, slice and serve.

🍻 ALCOHOL & FITNESS 💪🏼 We love training and eating for fitness and health related goals, but we do all still drink regularly in moderation, and also socially, in slightly less moderation…

So, what’s the deal with drinking and building muscle or losing fat? Can you regularly drink and be a fully-fledged gym king or queen?

We think you most certainly can (to a degree). When drinking in moderation and regularly, we would always recommend tracking calories consumed through alcohol and mixers. And we would always recommend having alcohol-free days at least 2-3 times per week. Beyond that, the negative effect of alcohol will be incredibly minimal when calories, sleep and training are all equated to an alcohol-free individual.

When it comes to getting absolutely hammered, things change a little.

When getting bladdered you will likely have an influx of calories beyond your usual amount, and poor-quality nutrition following that. A calorie surplus and nutrient-sparse diet is not an ideal combination to create on a regular basis. High blood-alcohol levels can also affect fat-burning and hormone balance in the body for a period.

In a more basic and visual sense, the hangover lessens the likelihood of training the next day (and the day after that sometimes!), and generally increases the likelihood of a poor diet the day after drinking. It also makes you less productive in the days following, which can throw out the entire week, and reduce the time you can attribute to training and food prep.

So, we would recommend being sensible with alcohol. And suggest attempting to have a realistic game-plan in place for the next day to keep you on track. Something like a rest day and implementation of intermittent fasting following an event like a wedding or birthday night out would be a good move.

Ultimately boozing is your decision. We don’t believe getting hammered multiple times per week is sensible or advisable, but do not feel every food group that isn’t an avocado or aloe vera juice should be cut out.

Hope you've had a good weekend ladies & gents!
