Good evening, I hope the rest of your day went well. We have been hanging inside were it is safe and warm. I am most definitely busting out of here bright and early tomorrow before the snow starts to fall. I really want to get in a run and the only way that will happen is if I go to the gym.
This afternoon for a snack I tried out a new bag of Enjoy Life Granola that I picked up at Whole Foods when I was there today. It is very crunchy and if you are lucky you might get a big chunk of goodness. I topped 1/2 a cup Greek yogurt with 1/2 a cup granola.
For dinner I made a something very new to me – Raw Mac & Cheese. I got the recipe from Heather over at Heather Eats Almond Butter.
It was pretty simple but requires some time which is why I started mine this afternoon.
Here is the low down:
Slice and chop 4-5 summer squash into matchstick size pieces. Place squash in a bowl and sprinkle with a little salt. Let sit for 30-45 minutes.
To make the Cashew Cheese Sauce combine the following ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth.
1 cup water
3/4 cup raw cashews
1 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
Pour the sauce over the squash then put the entire mix into a casserole pan and place in the oven set to 115 degrees and prop the door open a crack. Let it warm through for 1-2 hours.
I put it over some oat bran – 1/3 cup bran cooked with 3/4 cup water. It was very tasty and even my huz liked it. I am a big fan of the sauce which I think will taste good on many other things.
I also had a sliced apple and a tbsp PB.
Tonight I tried a 60 minute Power Yoga – wow, I actually broke a sweat. I did not think that I was going to need to have something to eat after but I was hungry afterward. I ate a banana – I hope that does the trick.
That’s about it for today. I hope you have a great night. See you tomorrow.
