Vegan Nacho Cheese – including nutritional table – better than the original

Vegan Nacho Cheese – including nutritional table – better than the original

Vegan Nacho CheeseNutritional Table - NährwerttabelleIf there’s anything I love more than chocolate, it’s cheese.  Knowing this, I was incredibly wary of any recipe that claims to replicate cheese… with just vegan ingredients.  Until I tried this.  This vegan nacho cheese is the best thing I have made all year.  It’s so flavorful and delicious.  It has the perfect consistency and an absolutely perfect cheesy taste.

How is that possible without cheese as an ingredient?  The secret weapon is nutritional yeast.  A natural, vegan, gluten-free ingredient that has a naturally nutty and cheese taste.  Just two tablespoons are enough to make this a powerful, delicious cheese like recipe.

I hope you give this recipe a try – whether you are vegan or not.  I promise you, if you like cheese, this will blow you away.

Dessert for breakfast – start your day naturally sweet

Dessert for breakfast – start your day naturally sweet

Dessert for Breakfast - Strawberries Oats Banana ChiaBreakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I do enjoy eating throughout the day and love preparing a warm meal.  However, there’s just something special about the first meal of the day.  A few times a week, I create dishes like these.  I call these dessert for breakfast, because they are naturally so sweet and delicious; plus they make for a healthy start.

I try to get lots of my vitamin intake early in the day.  It boosts my mood and makes me feel like I’ve done something good for myself.  The best breakfast option is generally a green smoothie, which this recipe is a good base for, since it is sweet. The sweet ingredients in this recipe balance any bitterness from greens added to a smoothie.

Let’s go through the ingredients.

First, with the addition of flaxseeds and chia seeds, this recipe gives me lots of fiber.  Follow this breakfast by a couple of cups of water and your stomach will be working in full force.

Chia seeds are also high in protein and Omega 3/6 fatty acids.  This helps promote healthy skin, supporting the digestive system and reduces signs of aging.

About Potassium

My weekdays are long and at times very stressful, furthermore I have a long drive to work.  In addition, on some days, I get little to no physical activity. Especially on those days, I need to ensure that I keep my blood pressure under control through a well balanced diet.  Potassium is a nutrient that aids in the regulation of blood pressure. Bananas are fairly rich in potassium.  Plus, they are fairly sweet.  Therefore, Bananas are a great addition to this breakfast.

The berries in this recipe help me reach 90% of my required Vitamin C intake. The strawberries I purchased this week were rather sour than sweet, but since I added a banana and dates this became super sweet, like a dessert.

Finally, you could add a dash of vanilla extract to this and get a delicious, naturally sweet dessert for breakfast.
