New and Improved Buttery Spread and a Dairy Free Squash Mac ‘n’ Cheese Creation

New and Improved Buttery Spread and a Dairy Free Squash Mac ‘n’ Cheese Creation

 

Won’t bore you with the details of the morning run, but squeezed in some miles while watching Tammy.

Um, yeah, the movie was hilarious.

 

Somehow I managed to leave my phone in the workout room though and after a rather hectic day was finally reunited with it this evening.

 

It was so weird not having it all day.

 

Okay, so, let’s talk about butter. First of all, Joaquin loves butter. He pretty much wants it on everything. Since that’s the case I try to always make sure we have a healthy option here at the house. I’m also a huge fan of nondairy butter alternatives.

There’s this new improved vegan buttery spread out called MELT® Organic.

It comes in three flavor varieties: Rich & Creamy (original), Honey, and NEW Chocolate. I secretly was hoping I would find the chocolate one at our local Vons. I didn’t, but I did find the other two.

I’m picky about my buttery spreads. I like them to have healthy fats while also being creamy and easy to spread. These passed the test.

Organic, dairy free, soy free, and contains the a blend of “good fats” like virgin coconut and flax seed.

I’ve been using it wherever we usually use buttery spreads and have been feeling good about buttering up Joaquin’s toast with it.

I thought about coming up with an elaborate new recipe to share, but then I figured that I really haven’t been coming up with anything new lately so I’m not on the top of my game. Ha.

I’ve been trying to clean things up a bit in the eating department though so I used it the other night in a new variation of paleo spaghetti squash mac ‘n’ cheese.

I have to admit, I didn’t even measure what I threw together in here, but I also have to admit that it was darn tasty and I will be doing it again very soon. The addition of MELT® Organic original gave it that rich, buttery taste, especially since I didn’t use cheese.

Here’s how I threw this together.

Take a roasted spaghetti squash and string out the “noodles” with a fork into a pot on the stove.

Then I added MELT® Organic original, nutritional yeast, crushed red pepper, Cholula, garlic salt, rainbow peppercorns, seasoning salt and a little nondairy milk.

I’m sure you can add a different mixture of seasonings and it would still be fabulous, but this was one big huge bowl of deliciousness.

I stirred in a couple organic hot dogs and tempeh too and then topped it with a ton of steamed broccoli, but that didn’t quite make the picture.

Hot and healthy comfort food is so in this time of year, right?

Mmm…… now I’m hungry and craving comfort food. He he.

 

I’m also on the hunt to find the chocolate variety of this spread. I’m saving my last coupon for it. Ha. These other two were really easy to find, but if you want to know where you can find it by you check out the store locator here.

 

Are you picky about buttery spreads?

What’s your favorite comfort food?

MELT® Organic is a line of luscious, organic spreads made from healthy oils for butter lovers seeking a much healthier alternative, available in Rich & Creamy (original), Honey, and NEW Chocolate.

    Gosh I haven’t made my spaghetti squash in a while…I will have to do that soon. And yes, kind of picky in that I do want it “spreadable” like you said. 😉

    Happy Thursday!

    We just use butter in our house.

    I love, love, love mac and cheese, and ice cream, and mashed potatoes…the list goes on! 🙂

    Am I having an absolute brain fart? The nutrition label you show for the rich & creamy says it has ghee, but when I look online the nutrition label does not have it and calls that particular variety vegan.

    I don’t eat butter often but the few things I like with butter I tend to go overboard – movie theater popcorn and baked potatoes!!!
