FNK_Healthy-Vegan-Fettuccini-Alfredo_s4x3.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.616.462

Need:

12 ounces eggless fettuccine
2 cups unsweetened soy or almond milk
4 ounces soy cream cheese
3 tablespoons blanched sliced almonds
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast, plus more for sprinkling
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup loosely packed parsley leaves, chopped

Do:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil & cook the fettuccine according to package directions. Strain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water.

Add the soy milk, soy cream cheese, almonds, nutritional yeast, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper to a blender & process until smooth.

Heat the oil & garlic in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until the garlic just starts to sizzle & softens, about 1 minute. Add the soy milk mixture & 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water, bring to a simmer & cook until thick & creamy, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the fettuccini & parsley and toss to combine. Thin out with a little more pasta water if needed.

Divide the pasta among four bowls & sprinkle each with some nutritional yeast and a few grinds of pepper.

To say that this past week has rocked my world would be a vast understatement.

I received a phone call from someone I’ve adored, respected, & admired my entire life that turned into something I NEVER thought would happen. It was HELLACIOUS…to say the least.

At first, I was simply confused. But the more time I’ve had to sit here with this phone call repeating in my head, the worse things get. I see things clearer & clearer with every passing hour.

I was GREATLY disrespected. I was accused of falsehoods. I was belittled. I was laughed at. I was yelled at.

I had to speak to this person in a way I NEVER in a million years thought I’d ever do.

No one is responsible for my actions but myself. No one will yell at me like a child, NO ONE. I’m grown. No one will laugh at me while I’m in tears & think it’s okay.

And don’t EVER come at me thinking you’re gong to fight another person’s battle. All that came from that was me losing respect for both people involved & now, I don’t have a problem with just one person. I have problems with multiple people.

I won’t be broken down. I won’t be bullied. I’ll say goodbye forever before that happens.

There’s no coming back from the things I heard & the horrendous effects that situation took on my body.

Trust this though, it will NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. You thought you could break me down but I’m rising like the skyscrapers.
