So I have a confession to make…
I have a total blog crush on Oh She Glows! I can’t stop making these recipes. Everything is so delicious, easy, & healthy! I often get asked where I find my recipe ideas and vegspiration and this blog is definitely one of my top 5 resources.
Last week I tried this 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta with Kamut spaghetti and I am hooked. The bf said the avocado left an odd after taste so he mixed a bit of marinara in with his but I think I was just short on the lemon juice & basil. Tonight I followed the recipe exactly and was swooning over every noodle.
By the way… I even surprised myself with where I get my vegan protein this week. There are 15 g of protein in a 3 oz serving of Eden Organic Kamut spaghetti! Say what?! Just for fun I thought I’d check out whole wheat noodles… yup, 14 g in the grocery store brand. Fist pump 😉
After my swoon fest I made this Raw Pecan Pumpkin Butter for some fall-inspired dipping and spreading. I also had to make a second batch of the Quick ‘n Easy No Bake Protein Bars. I tried them a couple of weeks ago with brown rice syrup instead of maple syrup. The batter was really dry so I needed to add quite a bit of almond milk. They turned out a little floppy and took a lot longer to freeze enough to cut but still tasted amazing. This time I stuck to maple syrup and, you guessed it… swoon 🙂
Now for a little something of my own! Inspired by Shape magazine a few months back, apple nachos became an evening staple for this girl. I made a few tweaks to get it just how I like it and it needs to be shared with everyone I know. Make these ASAP!
Oh and go buy yourself an apple corer/slicer… Possibly one of the best inventions ever. Thanks mom 😉
Loaded Apple Nachos
Prep time: 5 min
- 1 medium apple
- 1/2 tbsp almond butter
- 1/2 tbsp unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1/2 tbsp chopped or slivered nuts
- 1/2-1 tbsp chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
- Slice apple into 16-20 wedges. I use a handheld apple slicer then cut the wedges in halves or thirds.
- Arrange apple slices on a small plate and microwave for ~3 mins
- Drizzle with 1/2 tbsp almond butter then sprinkle with coconut, nuts, & chocolate chips.
- Enjoy while watching The Bachelor or PLL
You can use a variety of as many toppings as you like but I’ve tailored this to be around 300 calories.
Have a lovely week 🙂
