Sorta A Hummus

I haven’t been good lately concerning my nutrition. Not only do I feel it in my level of energy, but also in my not so clear anymore skin and in my jeans. As all these points have a negative effect on how I feel about myself, I decided it’s time to start to make an effort again.

Today worked out pretty good so far: For breakfast I’ve had scrambled egg with spinach, onions, and turkey breast plus a toast with a teeny tiny amount of vegan chocolate spread (Chocolinette from France, it’s really good!!!) on it. Yup – I admit it, I do have a sweet tooth and if it is tended to eeeeevery day with a little amount of sweets it won’t make me eat an entire cake. Alone. In one day.

As I was crafting all day long – christmas presents need to be finished and I haven’t had time in a while so I really really missed it – I had a very late breakfast and just a cup of coffee in between. I know! Not healthy after all…But after my daily deed was done, I still had lots of energy left (this is what crafting and finishing projects does to me – and maybe also thinking about a special someone – YAY! I’ve finished a lovely doll for my friend Deb in the UK – check out the doll-tutorial here)

No chickpeas in da house!

So I hopped into the kitchen and checked the pantry and fridge. I started making sweet potato fries and roasted pumpkin with haloumi cheese and decided this combo might turn out juuuuust a litle bit dry…and we wouldn’t want that, right? I figured a hummus is the healthy choice to make, started prepping and couldn’t find a single can of chickpeas in my massive stash. In my mind I was screaming: Whaaaaaat? *ok, maybe there was a little screaming out loud. I am that kind of person who talks constantly with herself – I enjoy my own company, is all* How could that even happen? Honestly, I don’t have a clue! But I did find several cans of giant white beans. Duh! I figured…

This calls for some creativity and bravery!

I simply swapped the chickpeas from my favorite recipe with the giant white beans and added dried tomatoes *I will not do this again…yuk, those bits and pieces, not my taste*. Let me tell you, a little bravery every once in a while turns out yum!

Why don’t you give it a try, too?

Throw all these things into a food processor, switch it on and tadaaaaaa a Hummus, sort of:

  • 1 can great white beans (net drained weight 240 g)
  • 2 dried tomatoes
  • 1 glove of fresh garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (this is a sesame paste)
  • 1 lemon (the juice of it)

  1. The best fitness tip for building up your arms is to work opposite muscles in opposite sets of each other. The best example would be to work the triceps and then the biceps. Each has the opportunity to rest while the other is being worked. This minimizes your time and maximizes your workout.
