This post is sponsored by Weber

Creamy Carrot and Ginger Cashew Alfredo. Its the perfect way to add a little zing to your weeknight meals. Top this twist on Alfredo sauce on zoodles and you’ve got a guilt free dinner that is delicious!

Using Pacific Foods Cream Cashew Carrot Ginger Soup to make a spin on Alfredo and I wanted to keep if dairy free. The weight loss program I’m on prohibits dairy so this is perfect for me!

For the Alfredo, Thickened up with a little almond milk, clarified butter and almond flour as a roux, to turn the soup into a roux. Then added Pacific Foods creamy Cashew Carrot Ginger soup and let it reduce.

I also added a little onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper and some red chili flakes to add some extra punch!

I recently had a check up, and the doctor tells me “Ok, you’ve gained 30 pounds in the last year, and your blood pressure is through the roof!”

Definitely not what you want to hear, even though you kind of already saw the writing on the wall

So the next few months are turning into a mission to get those numbers down. Eating a little healthier, and cleaner I think will really help that.
