so that change i was talking about.
its not world rocking but it is to me. so here it is.
about a week ago i started cutting back eating meat and gluten, and i feel fantastic.
Its tough being surrounded by delicious pub food that has meat and gluten all over it. But the little victories in everyday make it worth it. I had yesterday off and had time to make some g-free food from scratch, and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Heres one of the recipes I invented yesterday:
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 large Granny Smith Apple, cut into small chunks (about the size of a dime) skins on
1 can E.D Smith Strawberry Pie filling
1 tbsp Becel Vegan Margarine
In a frying pan on medium heat, put 1/2 the can of milk, the apple, and the margarine. Let simmer for 5 minutes. Then add half the pie filling and the remaining milk. Let simmer for 5 minutes again, then add remaining pie filling. Turn to low and let it all hang out for 10 minutes. Then your sauce is ready.
The sauce will be thick, almost like a pudding, but heating it will thin it out. And if you have a thing about chunks in your sauce, you can easily strain it in a colander or if your so inclined, a cheesecloth.
I put this on top of a low fat cottage cheese as a treat last night and it was awesome! Not gonna lie I also ate a bowl of just sauce. Its a perfect topper for your favourite dessert, try it on cheesecake, ice cream, or use it as a pie filling.
If apple/strawberry isn’t your favourite flavour combo, heres some suggestions: Apple/Rhubarb, Pear/Cherry, Mango/Strawberry ….. no combo is wrong. But do be careful when you use a softer fruit (Mangos, Fresh Strawberries, Blueberries) in place of the apple, they will cook quicker.
Make it your own. Have some fun!! And DONT USE CIRTIS as the fresh fruit…bad things will happen to good people.
-until next time
be a river with me
