Creamy Vegan Alfredo Sauce

Alfredo sauce and pasta

If you love Alfredo sauce but don't love the heavy fat content from the cream and butter, this healthy vegan Alfredo recipe is for you! It is very easy to make, smooth and creamy, tasty and the perfect dairy free, nut free, parve and gluten free substitute for the traditional high fat and caloric Alfredo sauce. I'm excited about it and the possibilities. Weight Watchers are you listening?

Roasted Strawberry Parfait

I love this rich strawberry decadent parfait. 
It's fast and easy to assemble, makes a lovely presentation, and tastes divine. In addition, it's relatively healthy and uses only real whole food, making it a healthy snack even for kids! 
Did I mention it's gluten free, egg free and I offer a vegan substitution?

Butternut Squash Sage Soup- Instant Pot and vegan

Butternut squash and sage soup

Butternut squash seasoned with fresh sage makes a delightful soup that is both soothing and delicious. The temperatures are getting a little cooler, and I'm starting to think about fall flavors and comforting soups. I made my soup in the Instant Pot, but it can also be made on the stove top for those of you or are still holding out. 

The recipe has only 7 ingredients and is easy to make. It's a light soup that is low in calories, low in fat but high in nutrients and fiber.
