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. Using one of my favorite cruciferous vegetables, cauliflower, for the base alongside cashews and macadamia nuts rich in healthy fats and protein, and nutritional yeast for the creamiest non-dairy alfredo sauce.

“Where do I find calcium in a plant-centric diet? What are sources of calcium?”. This is such a common question I receive from readers all over the globe and my clients. In regards to health and our bodies, calcium is a mineral required in the body for multiple processes and most importantly bone and skeletal health. Calcium isn’t just needed for strong and healthy bones; calcium plays a vital role in muscle contraction (think of our heart, a muscle!), hormonal secretion, nerve function, messaging between cells, and vascular contraction/vasodilation (i.e. blood flow). Our bodies do a pretty amazing job at keeping the calcium in our blood tightly regulated, meaning no matter what, our bodies try to keep it from fluctuating. A downside to this regulation is calcium can be leached from our bones (i.e. a calcium reservoir) if we’re not supplying our body’s externally with enough calcium. So, how in the world can we get enough calcium if we’re eating plant-based foods or a dairy-free lifestyle? Simple.
Vanilla Bean Banana Crepes, a.k.a. the easiest crepe you’ll ever make… a.k.a. the only crepe recipe you may ever need (actually, I lied there are more crepe recipes in the Nutrition Stripped cookbook that are must trys). Bold statements I know, but they couldn’t be more true! I know how often I describe my food and recipes to be simple, but that’s what I’m all about. Creating really delicious whole food recipes and making them simple enough for everyone to make across the globe- no matter if you’re a foodie or not.
