In my exuberance for a food makeover I have downloaded Deliously Ella to my kindle, ipad and laptop. I have explored even more, to the extent of a full on relationship, medjool dates with nut butter. In my case this is WOW butter as we have a nut allergy in the house. WOW butter is a soya based butter with a flavour similar to peanut butter. Ella talks of the combination of medjool dates with nut butter in the middles (remove stone and squidge in a teaspoon of nut butter). Having read this, as I was tucked up in bed partaking of my pre-sleep read, I had to immediately go to the kitchen. Here I wrenched open a date and stuffed it with WOW butter. Lit only by the glow of the open fridge I consumed this new taste sensation. I have barely stopped since.
Ella has also introduced me to polenta, which I had with mushrooms and roasted kale,
and Blueberry Porridge Squares.
I found the recipe for Blueberry Porridge Squares on Ella's blog, but it is a guest recipe from Livia's Recipes http://deliciouslyella.com/guest-recipe-blueberry-porridge-squares/
These will be perfect as a snack for work on my carb days this month.
