Yum! Love candied pecans. Whats in the sack dumpling???

Money pockets were filled with spiced mini-cubed sweet potato, peas and corn. I usually eat one (just the filling) and hubby eats the other three intact. And, my empty pocket! Haha. I freeze the candied pecans and they last months. Walnuts, too. Love nuts on my salads. Had an acorn squash I needed to bake before spoiling. It will go good with Thai leftovers tonight.

Fettuccine alfredo topped with pan-seared lemony garlic-y shrimp.

I ate 9 shrimp (99g), skipped the Pasta and sauce: 155 calories.

What an attractive dish! The shrimp is seared to perfection. I'd expect nothing less. Now I want shrimp! Was it hard to leave behind the fettuccine Alfredo? I just want to dive into the image - grab my fork, twirl the Pasta and dig in. Looks yummy. ;]

Nope, not hard at all...given that I had two bites of saucy Pasta a couple weeks ago and barfed. I learn quickly (well most times, at least, lol)

Yesterday was Canada Day. There were no public celebrations because of the pandemic, but we spent most of the day with friends who are part of our small social bubble. I brought a picnic-style lunch for everyone: vegan banh mi with oil-free cannellini bean miso mayo in coconut wraps, green salad with oil-free blueberry vinaigrette, and various flavours of smoothies. We ate grilled peaches with orange blossom Water, pistachios, and tofu ricotta for dessert.

Most of my friends are foodies, and a few are chefs. A vegan chef made dinner, so it was fairly spectacular: kale Caesar salad with roasted chickpea croutons, smashed roasted potatoes with garlic avocado aioli (I skipped this), and black bean, mushroom and walnut burgers with caramelized onions and roasted Tomato chutney (sugarless) on raw dehydrated onion and mixed seed (pepitas, sunflower seeds, flax seed, psyllium husk) zero carb Buns. Dinner was lovely, but I enjoyed not having to make it even more. We ended the day with homemade raw vegan coconut ice cream bars (sans caramel; I only had one bite). Whew!

Even though I still can't -- and don't want to -- eat much, participating in a food-focused social gathering was exhausting. This formerly well-worn neural superhighway of mine has been "road closed / detour" since surgery, and will remain that way save for one or two days per year, at most.

I found some recipes for vegan Protein Bars that could taste decent. Mind you, there nutritional profile ist not as Protein heavy as the carb crushers by my Protein or the no cow bars but they're for sure less pricy.

There are quite a few recipes to check out here; have tried a few and they were good, but of course they all involve Protein Powder since it's a protein powder company website. I overbought in preparation for surgery and still have quite a bit of pea, rice, soy, and hemp powders to use up, though. Currently am making this recipe using either unsweetened Ripple pea milk or a homemade nut mylk, stevia or Monkfruit, and peanut or tiger nut flour instead of nut butter. Usually I toss in 15-30 gr of ground flaxseed as well. Sometimes I use toasted cocoa nibs in place of cocoa powder, or toss in some coconut manna. It is quite similar to the Peanut Butter chocolate No Cow bar, actually. If you wanted to dupe that, you could try adding a bit of glycerine to replicate the mouthfeel aspect.

Please share the links or recipes of bars that you make and enjoy.
