It’s that special day of the week where I decide to work on abs. So here’s that core work for you. This was my last set and I was taking it slow and shaking like a mother fuck, but I finished and now I want a nap. 😁
It’s weigh in day! I’m weighing I. At 290.8 this morning. 😁 That means I have lost 4 lbs this week and officially lost 🎉20lbs🎉 all together!!!!! Now granted I was really sick this week so it might not stay that high of a loss but that didn’t make me any less happy to see it pop up on the scale. 🙈
Yay! It’s Tuesday! That means my new YouTube video has been posted! In the first episode of Fab Foods I’ll show you how easy it is to make that tasty coconut green pasta I posted on Friday. Give it a watch!
This is a delicious vegan Cheese-less pasta, with cauliflower buffalo bites & salad made for the family dinner:
Cheese-less sauce recipe:
1 ½ cups raw cashews 3 T. fresh lemon juice ¾ cup water 1 ½ tsp. sea salt ¼ cup nutritional yeast ½ tsp. chili powder ½ clove garlic pinch of turmeric pinch of cayenne pepper ½ tsp. mustard (dijon or yellow)
If you have a Vita-Mix, or other high-powered blender, making this sauce is a cake-walk. Simply throw the first ten ingredients into the blender, and blend until smooth and creamy! If you do not have a high-powered blender, don’t worry– you can easily use a food processor or blender to process the cashews first, until they are finely ground, or ideally, a nut-butter-like consistency. Once your cashews are thoroughly processed, add the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth.
You should have a thick, smooth sauce. Pour over cooked pasta of choice.
Cauliflower Buffalo Bites recipe:
1 head cauliflower; chopped into bite size piece ½ cup brown rice flour ½ cup water Pinch of kosher salt Pinch of granulated garlic powder Non-stick spray ***Sauce*** 1 tsp. Earth Balance butter substitute; melted (I omitted this part) ½ cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce
Preheat oven to 450F.
In a small bowl, combine brown rice flour, water, garlic powder and salt. Mix thoroughly with a whisk.
Dip cauliflower pieces in the batter until coated evenly, then place on a lightly greased, non-stick baking sheet.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until the batter hardens, then flip with a spatula and bake for another 5 minutes.
Whisk together Frank’s Red Hot sauce and Earth Balance butter substitute in a small bowl.
When the cauliflower is finished, take a plastic pastry brush and evenly brush each piece with the hot sauce mixture.
Bake coated cauliflower for an additional 8-10 minutes, or until cauliflower is crispy, and sauce looks absorbed.
Remove from oven.
Let cauliflower bites set out for at least 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
