Those of you who follow multiple healthy living blogs have probably noticed that trends circulate through the blog world. If it weren’t for these trends I may have never discovered my love for green smoothies, quinoa, chia seeds and overnight oats. It’s funny…I usually ignore the trends for as long as possible, refusing to jump on the bandwagon in favor of individuality, before caving and joining the masses. Then my thought process usually goes, “Hmmm…this is really tasty. What was I waiting for? These bloggers are really on to something.”
Such is the case with Mama Pea’s famous Mmm Sauce. Bloggers have written entire posts dedicated to the deliciousness of Mmm but I held out on trying it until the stars aligned last night. I had all the ingredients on hand and a block of tofu in the fridge just begging to be covered in Mmm.
Mmm Sauce is a mixture of beans, nutritional yeast (yes, I had that in my pantry!), almonds, oil, water, lemon juice, garlic, spices and herbs. It’s super simple to make…dump the ingredients in a blender, give it a whirl and you are done. It kind of reminds me of a cross between goddess dressing and hummus with a little bit of cheesiness thanks to the nutritional yeast.
The verdict? Once again, the blog world was right in its raving about Mmm Sauce. And after my initial taste test, I feel totally confident serving it to Brandon as well. I know he’ll love it too!
I served my Mmm Sauce over baked tofu with brown rice and sauteed spinach. Head on over to Mama Pea’s blog and give it a try!

Other than discovering Mmm Sauce my day was pretty normal. I did get to practice ashtanga for the first time in almost three weeks and to say that it felt good to be back to it would be an understatement. I literally cherished every second of my practice and felt like a whole new person when I left the studio.
Breakfast was overnight oats at my desk…extra special because I had them in an empty peanut butter jar.
And lunch was a veggie sandwich with ranch, avocado, spinach, tomato and sharp white cheddar.
I taught BodyPump after work and decided to go heavy on my weights. Every few weeks I like to really push myself out of my comfort zone. I was dripping with sweat and my muscles were quivering but it felt really good to challenge myself with heavier weight. I love strength training…even though I’m a definitely feeling it today!
