Conserving Food

Good morning!

As you guys probably know by now, I’m pretty cheap frugal when it comes to cooking, so for dinner last night, I took what I had and mixed it together…

Mixed all my veggies together
Black beans, cauliflower, salsa and cheese

I topped the mix with garlic powder, seasoning salt, red pepper flakes, pepper, and soy sauce and made lettuce wraps.

After dinner, I made some food for the week: popcorn, chic pea cookies (a bit of a fail), and almond butter.

Ingredients (No measurements used)

  • 2 handfuls of almonds (I rinsed mine under water for a couple seconds but soaking them over night would be ideal)
  • 1 handful of cut up dates
  • Vanilla extract
  • Tiny drop of almond extract if you have it
  • Cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • A few tablespoons of almond milk
  • Spoonful of coconut oil


Mix all the ingredients in the food processor.

I let the consistency guide my measurements of each ingredient.

The dates served as the sugar and the coconut oil as the butter. This sweet almond butter would be great on sandwiches and to dip your finger in fruit and snacks in. 😉

Are you an almond butter fan? What’s your favorite kind/brand of nut butter?

Have a great day!
