Zoats? You may be thinking “McKel, did you make a typo?”, I promise I didn’t. I’m only at it again sneaking veggies into your meals, this one being breakfast. Last month I shared a new favorite way of mine to incorporate zucchini into breakfast, in my Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl, today I’m making a delicious high protein porridge. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, I’ve been LOVING porridges for breakfast and you may have caught on to be mentioning zoats. They’re incredibly high in fiber, protein, nutrients, filling and taste amazing… anytime you can enjoy chocolate for breakfast is a win in my book.

This is the Apple Cinnamon Sweet Bread I’ve been talking about for like a week now, and if you’ve been keeping up to date with me on my daily life through Instagram you’d know I can’t get enough of this bread! It screams fall with warming spices like ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, of course in season apples. Not just any type of apple, but the ones that you pick off the tree because they’re perfectly ripe and ready to be eaten, type of apples. I love using fruit as a natural sweetener just as I’m using apples in this bread recipe for a natural sweetener but also to provide the bread with volume, moisture, and a one of a kind flavor.

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.
