Thank goodness friday is almost here. Ive been having a case of the blahs this week because of the rain, icky weather.
First off I wanted to say thank you to each and every single one of you who commented and congratulated me on my 100th post. 🙂 Im always overwhelmed with happiness when I think of all the amazing people I have met in the blogosphere.
This was one of the recipes that I invented on thanksgiving after my portobellos didnt turn out as expected. It is one of my new favorite dishes, and I have been enjoying it every morning for breakfast. Yum!
Spiced Carrot Puree
2-4 carrots, chopped (depending on size of carrots)
1 packet stevia
1 ripe banana
1/4 cup raw nut milk, or soy milk of your choice
dash pumpkin pie spice
Place the carrots in your food processor and process until in small pieces. Add nut/soy milk, stevia, banana and pumpkin pie spice and process again until it becomes a creamy puree. You might have to scrape down the sides one or twice. This is so tasty that sometimes Ill eat it right out of the food processor. It’s a perfect sweet treat too for whenever you need a little pick me up.
Delicious salad combo with sprouted chickpeas, green lentils, balsamic glazed carrots, pan-fried tofu and this…
My mom bought me this to try out. Usually I don’t go for products that are pre-packaged. However my mom was so thoughtful when she picked this up for me, so I had to try it. (My love for humus has nothing to do with it ;))

I have to say I really did enjoy this hummus. It was so easy to prepare, all you needed to do was add tahini and water and give it a good mix. I added less tahini than was called for, and it still turned out amazing! It had a wonderful flavor that wasn’t too heavy on the garlic. If you have a chance I would pick this up at your local grocery store and give it a taste test. You will not be sorry!
Ive also got some fantastic news! Remember how a month or so ago I went job shadowing for a local news station? Well today I scheduled my second job shadowing experience. Where am I going? You’ll have to wait and see But let’s just say that I am so excited that I did a little dance when I found out!
Gotta bounce – Ive got a big day ahead of me today,which includes work and studying for a Macbeth final. This upcoming test (which is on tomorrow!) is worth a whopping 25% of my overall grade. Good thing I like Shakespeare because Ive been hitting the books pretty hard these past couple days.
Question of the day – How do you spell hummus/humus/humos?
I have seen it spelled so many different ways. Usually I spell it like “hummus”, but im curious to see how you spell it.
