I’m really surprised how many uses there are for nuts. This weekend, I stayed on track, for the most part. We had company over for dinner on Saturday and I made lasagna. So, for myself, I made a vegetable lasagna (no noodles – I’ll post the recipe this week) with a cashew ‘ricotta’ filling. It was really good, and very filling. Then for Easter Sunday, we were going to my mom’s house and she was making ham, so I made a vegan shepherd’s pie and for dessert I made a ‘cheese’ cake with raw cashews. It was really amazing. I never would have thought of all of these uses for nuts. It’s amazing how much you can learn with a computer and just a little time. Of course, I altered the recipes because, well, I’m a little OCD and that’s just how I roll. At dinner I got adventurous and made my own dressing with cashew butter. I’ll post the recipes tomorrow – I’m a little short on time tonight because I have a ladies homeschooling luncheon to get ready for. Besides, I’ll probably be eating all leftovers tomorrow. Here’s the break down for today:
Breakfast: oatmeal made with whole oats, blueberries, almond milk, and flax meal
Lunch: leftover veggie chili; salad topped with a little dairy free cheese and creamy sesame dressing
Dessert: vegan ‘ cheese’ cake with strawberry topping
Exercise today was walking 3 miles in 41 minutes. It felt good. Tonight I’m going to do yoga when I’m done with getting ready for tomorrow. Oh, yeah, I lost 3 pounds this past week – not as good as I thought I might do, because of how much I lost in the first week, but I’m still going in the right direction. Until tomorrow…..
