But first since I'm talking food why not join in on What I Ate Wednesday. So here it is (minus a few items)...
Lunch and morning snack: Strawberries and homemade granola (snack), salad with roasted edamame and sweet potatoes with chipotle hummus (lunch)
Afternoon snack and time to see the trainer for a few speed interval miles and strength work
Roasted Red Pepper “Cream” Sauce
1 pkg silken tofu
2 roasted red peppers (jarred or fresh work)
2 minced cloves garlic
1 scallion minced
Salt/Pepper to taste
2-4 tbsp Unsweetened non-dairy milk
Put tofu, peppers, garlic and scallion in food processor until smooth. Add milk and mix until desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
Pasta with Spinach/Artichoke
~ 4 cups spinach
1 can artichoke hearts (the ones in water) or fresh
2 cloves garlic
While the sauce is mixing Saute spinach and artichoke hearts in olive oil. Add garlic and season with salt/pepper if desired. Mix with cooked pasta and top with red pepper sauce. Serve with red pepper flakes and Parmesan.
Even my milk drinking, meat eating husband loved this! I think next time I will top with sun dried tomatoes too. I’m now thinking of other fun sauces to make to mix things up a little.
