Guys. Last night I came home to 14 tubs of Roots hummus. Is this a dream or is this a dream? Pinch me puuhhhleeease.
I plan on eating hummus for breakfast, lunch and dinner until I retire. Which will be never. More on that later. Let’s talk foooood!
The usual. Lately I’ve been bringing 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk + 1 cup of water + a pinch of salt to a boil. Once boiling, I add 1/2 cup of steel cut oats. Let it boil for two minutes on medium-high heat, stirring to prevent overflow. Then remove from heat and let it sit overnight, covered. In the morning, I stir in 2 tbsp of chia seeds. Put half in a bowl and then half in the fridge for tomorrow’s brekkie. Top with berries and almond buttah, duhhh!
I made a big batch of this vegan cauli-power fettucine “alfredo” to have for meals throughout the week. I blended in raw cashews to the sauce for more oomph and used whole-wheat spaghetti instead of fettuccine. Aaaaaand I added peas and spinach, obvi. Peppers and hummus on the side!
On Tuesdays I’m on campus all day, so I make sure to always be armed with snacks galore. Today’s picks included an organic gala apple (on sale at Kroger right now!), a couple peanut butter chocolate chip energy bites and the BEST banana bread ever. Seriously. I use 1/4 cup of coconut sugar instead of stevia and add chocolate chips. Make this now!!
I also munched on some of these babies (way more than what’s pictured) while I was coding for my thesis.
I wanted to include some of the Roots hummus and salsa in my dinner but I was reeeeeally craving a smoothie after Body Pump, so I did a little of both. The smoothie was a mix of frozen blueberries, frozen nanner, a huge handful of power greens, cocoa powder, cinnamon and almond milk. Then I scrambled up some eggies with tomatoes, avocado and Roots tomatillo salsa and toasted a piece of Ezekiel–always necessary. I slathered the toast with Roots black bean hummus, which was SUPER amazing. I will definitely be recommending it to hummus lovers everywhere!
I’m hoping to do a giveaway sometime in the near future. Everyone needs a taste of this heavenly hummus!
