Ardesmond2's Thoughts

By ardesmond2

I got this from Tanya’s Site so all props to her.

I am posting this in response to sick of nuts and for all of us who refuse to spend half your budget on nuts only to gain nothing but bloated bellies and weight.

My daughter and I ate these before my wife could get home. It is really tasty and worth a try.

when I was a teen I could eat anything as I had a stomach of steel, it seemed. 20 years later I'm not so lucky :-)

I'm printing this out for my shopping list and making the taco meat tonight along with the Russel Jame's kale salad that also calls for chipotles. yum!!!

I love nuts...but I am so glad to see a recipe without them. If I have dehydrated seed bread I can not eat nuts on it. My insides start to hurt. I rather stick to veges, seeds and fruit...thanks so much for this recipe. Oh, to tummybetter...try juicing a few days...or even a greensmoothie EVERYDAY in place of something solid. My husband has dropped 40 lbs in 3 months and I have lost 20 in about 5 months. He has a greensmoothie for breakfast and I have one 5 days a week and trade off 2 days with Nirvana Hemp Breakfast from Ani. Yummo!

I've made this w/ mushroom pieces instead of the bell pepper, and as expected, it made it even meatier and more filling! I've used this recipe as a base for ideas for meat, like recently, I tried walnuts, sundried tomatoes, chipotle powder, and cumin (and I forget if I threw in any mushrooms!). It was very filling and tasty!

Would it work without chiplote? Is there anything to substitute it?
