I’ve decided to start a feature that highlights an amazing recipe I’ve tried from a blogger friend. It will give a shout out to great people with great recipes and star a recipe that I love to bite-size pieces. So welcome to this week’s featured Star Recipe!
At our house, we make a lot of almond milk. This process yields a lot of almond pulp from the milk recipe. Our freezer is overflowing with almond pulp. I am one of those people who hate leftovers, but also does not like to waste things. So our almond pulp collection piles up. And up. Imagine my delight in discovering Elana’s almond pulp cracker recipe. Seriously, check it out!
And then once you’ve made this terrific recipe, you can take these healthy, vegan crackers and make them fattening and de-veganize them. Yes, I realize that de-veganize isn’t officially a word, but today it is because I say so. And yes, this is a healthy living website. But a healthy lifestyle includes balance. Here’s the balance…
Bacon and Cream Cheese
- Spreadable cream cheese
- Bacon bits*
*To make it slightly healthier use crumbled turkey bacon and low-fat cream cheese or you could be as fearless as me and do the full fat version.
This really isn’t much of a recipe, but I have to say this is a great little topping for crackers at a party or for a quick mid-afternoon snack. I munched on these while I worked on this post.
Yesterday: I find it funny that my birthday is in National Health Month. Is that why I’m a little more health crazed than everyone else in my family? One of my sister-in-laws is born in March too and she’s a health nut. I’m sensing a trend.
Anyway, I have to say that my birthday was completely amazing. I was spoiled! Seriously, I’m so grateful for such a great family and such awesome friends. I even got breakfast in bed, a big banner and balloons, one of my favourite meals, and I got to hang out and play games all night. Perfect. I got some pretty cool gifts too, like a couple pairs of yoga pants, a tripod for my food photography, an i-home system, a Clean Eating cookbook…I was pretty much overly pampered. But hey, on birthdays, gotta say…bring it on! Looking forward to what this next year brings!
Does your family have any special birthday traditions?
