Yummy Vegan Alfredo Sauce

I found this easy and very quick pasta sauce that you can make in 5 minutes. It’s dairy and gluten-free so it’s great for the Elimination Diet. My whole family loves it! Here is a picture of last night’s dinner.

Vegan Alfredo Sauce

INGREDIENTS [YIELDS 12 OZ. SAUCE]

1 c. coconut milk [the canned kind]
1/2 c. nutritional yeast
1 medium clove of garlic
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper

Mince the garlic and add all of the ingredients to a blender. Blend until the consistency is smooth and creamy – you know, like alfredo sauce. Pour it over any pasta you’d like and warm quickly with the rest of your hot pasta and other toppings.

This week, I added broccoli to my boiling pasta and cooked diced chicken at the very end. My pasta choice is a rice and quinoa pasta I found at Costco. I suppose the whole meal isn’t vegan but the sauce is so enjoy!

Elimination Diet – Breakfast Day 1

Here is what I made for breakfast this morning. I thought I would share with you and build up our recipe database for everyone who wants to eat clean and do the elimination diet.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup cooked brown rice (I make a big batch and refrigerate up to 4 days)

2 tbsp ground flaxseed (stored in the freezer)

1/2 cup frozen berries: blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cranberries

1 tbsp vanilla flavoured rice protein powder (sold at The Healing Oasis)

1/4 cup of water

Simmer on the stove until warmed through

mmm!

Cleanse with Your Friends begins!

I have begun instructing a great group of women with The City of Barrie program – Cleanse with Your Friends.
We are all starting our cleanse within the next few days. I’m gearing up to start tomorrow and came up with a new snack:)

Black Bean Avocado Dip

  • 1 can black beans, rinsed well
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • juice of half a lemon

Blend all ingredients in a food processor. The colour is kind of greyish afterwards but it tastes great! Eat with carrot and celery sticks, cucumber and some brown rice crackers. Mmmm!

Day 1 for me starts tomorrow!
