Low Fat, Low Calorie Creamy Mushroom Sauce

This Low Fat, Low Calorie Creamy Mushroom Sauce saved the day yesterday. For many years, I added oils and nut milks to whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted! But now that I have refined my eating patterns, I have begun to replace many bad habits with better habits and this has been one of them. I am not sure yet if I plan to return to using oils, I’ll have to determine that later. However, I am certain that I will definitely return to using more nut milks after my training is over. I use them only sparingly now.

So, last night I was craving fats and oils and in order to quench my craving and also stick with my healthy eating intentions, I created this super quick, super simple creamy mushroom sauce.
