Hi, this is the first video I’ve made since the birth of my son Landon, and I’ve lost 25 pounds in less than two months. I’ve only got 5 more pounds to lose to reach my pre pregnancy weight. I’m excited about that! Diet has a huge part to play in losing the weight so I thought that would be important to share with everyone! Now to get these last 5 lbs. off, I’m starting to incorporate workouts. I need to tone up my body again and boost my metabolism. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes!
Today I’m going to be making a healthy vegan Italian meal, Rosemary Alfredo sauce with super Low Carbohydrate Noodles. For the sauce, the main ingredient is going to be cashews and the noodles that I’ll be using are kelp noodles.
Benefits of Cashews
-Hair, skin, bone, heart, and bone health
-Contain iron, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus, which are all minerals that your body needs to function properly.
-Healthy monosaturated oil similar to olive oil, so they are great for weight loss as well.
Because cashews are contain quite a bit of fat, the meal will have more fat than I normally recommend, the good news is, it’s a healthy fat. It’s okay to have a fun, indulgent meal once in awhile.
It’s a Super Easy Recipe!!!
For the sauce, I’m going to blend only 5 ingredients in the blender and poor the resulting sauce over the noodles. It s so easy!
3 cups raw cashews (optional macadamia nuts)
2-3 cloves garlic- can press through a garlic press
1 Tbl rosemary- fresh/dried
salt to taste
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 cup water or enough to blend in to a thick cream
1 tsp. nutritional yeast (optional on top)
Throw all ingredients in the blender and blend on high. Blend until thick and creamy and sauce is done. Isn’t that amazing?!
Poor sauce over 1-2 packages of rinsed & chopped kelp noodles. (Kelp noodles are raw and crunchy, and you can just pull them out of the bag,rinse& they are ready to go)
Purchase at kelpnoodles.com, or you can purchase them at your local health food store.
Alternative noodle- shredded zucchini which I show you how to make in this video. raw spaghetti
This is a healthy alternative to a heavy, creamy, dairy-rich Alfredo sauce. If you want, you can add vegetables such as broccoli. If you sprinkle on nutritional yeast it will produce a flavor almost like parmesan cheese.
Add this to a meal with vegetables and a salad. I dare you to try it on any of your friends, even if they are not health-conscious. They’re going to like the gourmet flavor.
Let me know how you like it! Keep the comments coming!
At the end of the video I introduce my son Landon and my husband!! Until next time, bye from the Pauza family!
