My pooches are wearing me out giving them two hours of exercise a day. Of course, they are still ready to go again while I'm ready for a break. At least, it keeps the holiday calories at bay.
|Kale chips alfredo
Here's what you need:
For the Hemp Alfredo Sauce: (makes extra to use as sauce for veggies)
1 cup hemp seeds
1/2 cup hemp milk (unsweetened)
2 T. lemon juice
dash of stevia
1-2 tsp. miso paste
salt/pepper to taste
dash of nutmeg
For the Kale Chips
Leaves from one bunch of kale
3-4 T. hemp alfredo sauce
Here's what to do:
Make a batch of the hemp alfredo sauce by blending the ingredients until smooth and creamy in a food processor. Next, remove the leaves from the kale stems. Place the leaves in a bowl and drizzle with alfredo sauce. Toss with your hands. Spread the kale on a large baking sheet. Place on the top shelf of your oven. Bake at 350 degrees but keep your eye on them. Remove when crispy, about 15-20 minutes.
It's not easy, but still possible, to tire a sled dog out.
