Vegan Mac Faux Cheese 🐭 There are lots of wonderful vegan mac and cheese recipes out there. This is one I frequent.

Vegan Mac Faux Cheese

2.5 cups GF macaroni pasta

½ cup raw cashews

¾ cup russet potato, peeled and chopped

½ cup carrots, chopped

¼ cup nutritional yeast

¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

½ tsp. smoked paprika

¼ tsp. garlic powder

½ tbsp. lemon juice

¾ tsp. pink Himalayan salt

¼ tsp. white pepper

Soak cashews in water overnight or add boiling water to them and allow them to sit for 15-20 minutes.

Bring a small pot of water to a boil and add the potatoes and carrots. Boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.

In a separate pot of boiling salted water add pasta and cook according to instructions on the package. Drain pasta and reserve ¼ to ½ cup of pasta water.

While the pasta and veggies are cooking add the cashews, nutritional yeast, almond milk, spices and lemon juice to a blender. Next, add the cooked vegetables and blend on high for a minute or until smooth. Mix the “cheese” with the cooked (drained) pasta adding a bit of the pasta water to thin it out to your liking.

Honestly, I can’t think of anything better than a big stack of sweet cinnamon banana pancakes, drenched in maple syrup; topped with fresh fruit✨ I could eat pancakes for every meal👌🏻

To day is the PERFECT weather day! it’s all cloudy, cold, and I’m hoping it’s going to rain. What’s a better way to start the day than with some hot creamy oats on a crisp fall morning. {frozen blueberries, fresh strawberries, cinnamon, and of course maple syrup}✨ if you haven’t put frozen fruit in you oatmeal you need to! I think it even makes it sweeter.? Plus the frozen blueberries makes it look all Galaxy!

Simple Overnight Oats

I like simple. If my meals are simple then I’m more likely to eat it again. And though I’d prefer not to live such a busy life I have to be realistic when it comes to meal prep. Overnight oats are probably on the top of my list (next to smoothies) for quick and filling breakfast options. There are so many ways to season them. Here’s what I do:

1 cup GF rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (preferably homemade)
1 TBSP maple syrup
2 TBSP almond butter

Blend the almond milk, maple syrup and almond butter in a high speed blender, mix with rolled oats and place in an airtight container. Allow to sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight. When ready, transfer oats to a bowl and top with your favorite fruit. In the photo above I used fresh strawberries and pomegranate seeds, desiccated coconut, cacao nibs and 1 TBSP carob powder.

Getting on the turmeric oat trend😂 I’m not the biggest fan of turmeric, but you can’t even taste it when it’s in the oats essentially when you have a butt load of peanutbutter to cover it all up🌟

🌿BANANA BREAD🌿
This is my favourite thing to do with 2-3-4 day old banana bread (if it ever lasts that long) . Step 1 cut yo fine ass some banana bread. Step 2 put the banana bread in the toaster and toast that baby up. Step 3 put your favourite nut butter on top as well as some sweet fruit👌🏻
