The Hummus Course
Not that I have you guys fooled, but I think we can all agree the healthy living blog community likes to keep things beautifully edited and styled- from food pictures to meal posts. I like to keep things positive because I love the uplifting community and the motivation I get from interacting with you guys. However, I think sometimes we perpetuate a life of perfection. It's 9:30 PM and I just settled in after my workout, bringing stuff in from the car, cooking buckwheat for tomorrow (you're welcome, hubby), and packing lunches.
In case you ever had a fleeting thought that I have my stuff together, I present you with my typical weeknight culinary delight- the hummus course. I really, really like having this and eat something more filling along with it. The sharp objects in the background are optional.
1. Fill bowl with veggies
2. Dip in hummus
3. Refill bowl and repeat
4. Find a nice snack to eat after, like millet toast with almond butter and coconut butter
I did make something last night that was true perfection. We all know Gena's banana soft serve, yes? Since I'm not eating chocolate or other fun stuff like ice cream, I made my own soft serve and added some raspberries and it was fabulous. I ate it out of order in food combining rules, but it was perfect according to my rules.
Adapted Soft Serve:
Adapted from Choosing Raw
*1 frozen banana
*1 cup of frozen raspberries
*little bit almond milk.
*Blend, blend, blend!
*Optional: coconut butter topping
I loved this and I'm definitely going to be making this more often.
Question for you: Tell me your quick 5 minute go-to meal. Go!
