Vegan dressing stuffed mushrooms

Standard

Made up my own recipe for gluten/sugar free vegan cornbread dressing with corn meal, rice flour, guar gum, almond milk, xylitol, apple sauce, veggie broth, and spices. Didn’t measure so don’t have a recipe. Once that was done I cored some whole baby Bella’s and stuffed the mixture into it. Drizzled with olive oil and heated in oven. Result – Yummy!

Breakfast Reconfigured

Standard

In our culture if you’ve not got a plate of pork surrounded by eggs and bread you’ve not eaten breakfast. Well, none of those things are allowed in my diet any longer, so what is left. Nothing… That is if I want to stick with the traditional breakfast fare. My health coach has hipped me to a totally new way to eat for breakfast. No pork or breads included, but I feel completely satisfied. So, I thought it would be great to share. She didn’t name the recipe so I’ll leave it unnamed until she post it on her site. Follow the simple directions below and BAM!!! Yummy Goodness for Breakfast.

1 can Garbanzo Beans
1 bag of Lima Beans
1Bag of spinach
Peanut Sauce
Chia/Hemp seed mix
Olive Oil
 I’ve used frozen lima beans and canned lima beans. I’ve also used frozen spinach, but I prefer to use fresh.
Just sauté the beans and spinach (in olive oil) to your liking. Add the peanut sauce once the beans and spinach are about 75% cooked…simmer for about a minute or 2. Add chia/hemp seed mixture just before serving.

“Sweet” Tea

Standard

We southerners probably have sweet tea running through our veins. Stuff so sweet you’d think you were sucking on a sugar cane. But it’s what gets us through the hot summer days that seem to sap the life out of you if you stay in the sun too long. Well seeing as though I can’t have caffeine or sugar one would think I’d have to give up the powerful elixir, but fate has chosen to show me another path. I can still enjoy the sweet goodness without either having sacrificed none of the yummy goodness that makes it the go to drink of us here in the south. I’ve even found the perfect container that makes the perfect strength without fail. Believe me I’ve tried it enough times to have failed but so far It’s been perfect every time. I use a decaf tea, an artificial sweetener, and lemon packets.

My entire family loves this! – Perfection!!!
