Fat Fueled Recipe: Creamy Vegan Alfredo

Fat Fueled Recipe: Creamy Vegan Alfredo

Healthy fats like saturated fats, monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and omega fatty acids  are all necessary nutrients your body needs to thrive! They are each important to the body's cell development, brain function, hormone regulation and maintaining a healthy metabolism. Our fat fueled recipes highlight ingredients rich in healthy fats that you can begin to incorporate into your healthy lifestyle to function at your best! 

 

I know what you're thinking: Alfredo is NOT a summer dish!

  
This one is different, I promise. This ultra creamy sauce pairs perfectly with a pile of freshly spiralized zoodles from the garden! What makes it fat fueled? Well I'm glad you asked!


 
Avocado and almonds are the healthy fat sources used to create this decadent alfredo, but thats not all! Almonds boost this recipes' plant based protein content way up, making it a perfectly balanced meatless meal! 

 

 
This meal can be enjoyed cold (perfect for summer lunches!) or warm.
