I love kale.

You Won’t Believe it’s not Alfredo, Alfredo

You Won't Believe it's not Alfredo, Alfredo | Nutrition Stripped I know I said this when I brought you all McKel’s Ultimate Cheeze Sauce several weeks ago, but I’m going to say it again- this alfredo sauce is the best. You’ll never believe it’s not a traditional alfredo sauce either, hence the name You Won’t Believe it’s not Alfredo, Alfredo. I turn a classic and traditionally high calorie dish into one that will leave you feeling great, light on your feet, and maybe have room for seconds.

Fortunately, my family embraced healthy foods and were on the health conscious side, but that didn’t mean I wouldn’t eat “junk”. When I was a teenager learning to cook for myself, mac & cheese with broccoli was my go-to, it was easy, moderately healthy (or so I thought) and kept me feeling good enough to do activities I wanted to all day/night long.

Nonetheless, even if you’re in the middle of fall or winter for all my international readers, you can still enjoy this recipe to bring a little of the tropics and beachyness to your side of the globe with this recipe.

Beachy Papaya Boats with Papaya Seed Drizzle has been a recipe I’ve been making for a couple summers now, since I started enjoying papaya, and have come up with several variations using these unique tropical fruits. The center of the papaya is hollowed out so we can squeeze more goodies inside such as, fresh avocado, hemp seeds, juicy figs, crunchy cashews, and a dollop with Sweet Cream. They’re truly a dessert for breakfast kind of thing… or breakfast for dessert- however you look at it, it’s delicious!
