Wow!! I can't believe my eyes. I have lost 4 pounds. I know it is not a huge number, but things have been crazy here for several weeks. I been doing all I can, but I always wonder if it is enough. Last week my little boy had his tonsils removed and we were stuck at home. This week we are stuck at home again potty training!!! I've been trying to eat healthier and light meals at night. Guess it is working. Only 6 more pounds to go!!! I know I can do it. The huge reward is Vegas!!! My problem lately is snacking. Since we are home; I feel I'm always sticking my hands in the pantry. I've decided to pull out a old recipe that I love. Hummus.......it is the best hummus recipe. Snacking on hummus with cucumbers, carrots and radishes are so yummy!!!
Here is my hummus recipe: ENJOY!!
1 (15 oz) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 medium clove garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
pinch cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup kalamata olives
Put all the above ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Hummus will last in refrigerator for 2 days.
