Thanks for all your great advice and input on my workout frustrations. I responded to a lot of your comments on the original post, and am going to see a sports doctor later on today. Hopefully I will come out of it with good news!
(Thank you, University Health Services, for offering free drop-in sports therapy appointments to students.)
Remember how excited I was about my Cuisinart Mini-Prep? Yeah, it was unfortunately a short-lived affair. I must have gotten a faulty processor, because the plastic piece that locks the bowl to the motor broke off, and Mini-Prep became very leaky.
When I went to exchange it for a new one, they were out of stock, so my mom got us a bit of an upgrade to the Mini-Prep Plus!
Apparently, I like to make unusual hummus variations.
They are delicious and healthy, though, so no complaints here!
- 3/4 c. chickpeas (either soaked, cooked and drained OR drained canned beans)
- 2/3 c. peanut butter
- 2 T. sunflower seeds
- 1 1/2 T. lemon juice (fresh-squeezed; use slightly less if concentrated)
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 T + 1 tsp cinnamon
Blend first four ingredients in a food processor until mostly smooth. Add the salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon , and continue processing until smooth. Enjoy with fruit slices, carrot sticks, graham crackers, or pita slices.
I was QUEEN of the small meals this weekend, as I was in major study-mode. And in addition to tasting plates with Cinnamon PB Hummus, green monsters, and leftovers, I tried some new foods!
Saturday’s study session was interrupted by a visit from the USPS woman…. My Adore bars arrived!
For dinner on Saturday, I roasted up some garlic ‘butter,’ a la Katy. Katy dear, this stuff is GENIUS. People, you have to try this. It is so good, and makes some amazing garlic bread! I had it spread over some crusty bread and grilled asparagus, alongside some roasted chickpeas.
Come back tomorrow for a fun giveaway! A hint? You may get to try some yumberries yourself!
