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. 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.

Calcium 101

Calcium 101, dark leafy greens, sources of plant based calcium Nutrition Stripped

“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.
