Smitten Meets HEAB

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

Last week, CD and I made the most amazing tomato sauce from Smitten Kitchen. The sauce was simple and delicious. Therefore, I’m not sure what possessed me to doctor it up, but I did. :)

I present to you I’m Smitten with Marinutta Sauce


I followed Smitten’s recipe, but used 2 TBSP butter instead of 4. While the sauce simmered, I browned 1 lb. of grass fed finished beef in a skillet and added it to the sauce after both were done cooking. I then stirred in 2 TBSP of Nuttzo Nut Butter. We ate the sauce over raw spiralized zucchini squash, cooked spaghetti squash, and steamed Brussels. This was so good. I loved the addition of the meat, and the occasional hazelnut chunk from the Nuttzo. All that remained on my plate were some zucchini squash noodles. I don’t know…just wasn’t feeling them that night. However, they sure tasted good the next morning at breakfast!


First, I cooked 2 strips of bacon and then in the same skillet, I sauteed my leftover squash with several handfuls of spinach. When my veggies were done cooking, I added two eggs to the mix and topped my mess with some cream cheese. Such a satisfying brekkie.

I haven’t talked much about my exercise lately. I’ve just been walking everyday for about an hour. That’s it. No yoga this week – taking it easy and enjoying the sunshine. I’m in the less is more zone and feeling GREAT. :)
