Monday Motivation!

It’s a long weekend here in BC, which means that Veronica and I finally got together for a lovely hike with another close friend. Driving back from our hike we were in a car accident- thankfully we all walked away, sore and bruised, but okay in the scheme of things. It really made us think about life and how everything happens for a reason… Life is a precious thing, and no one gets out alive; embrace your happiness, love those around you, and focus on the positive and beautiful things that surround you. My outlook on life has changed dramatically, so this Motivation Monday is a bit of a reflection of that. We hope you all have an amazing week on all levels; emotionally, physically, spiritually… love it all 🙂

Hope you all had a fabulous Easter. If you ate a little too many delicious treats, it’s time to get back to the grind and on the healthy eating and workout wagon 😉 Haaaappy Monday!

Kale Cheese Sauce

Oh hello interwebs! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything! Life keeps getting the better of me, I’m sorry!

My son and I went for an awesome walk through some local trails today, and were really hungry by the time we got home! He wanted grilled cheese, but I was thinking more along the lines of Mac&Cheese. Neither of them are super healthy, so I figured it would be easier to sneak some veggies into the cheese sauce. My experiment turned into a success! All we have on hand is spaghetti noodles, but it’ll work with any kind of noodle!

Kale Cheese Sauce
(2-3 servings)

3 stalks of kale (I used black kale)
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2-3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2-1 tbls flour (I used brown rice flour)
S&P to taste

Wash and cut off the ends of your kale and throw it in a blender with almond milk. Blend until smooth. Add kale/almond milk to a warm pot and let it heat up slightly. Add cheese in handfuls, stirring until it all melts. Add flour as needed to thicken the sauce and season to taste! Mix with pasta and top with extra cheese.

I’m so happy this turned out yummy, my son was a little sceptical at first (he doesn’t generally like green food), but I added a little more grated cheese and he ate it all!

Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!

Much love,
