How are you? That big smile looks great on you;)
I acted on some inspired thought last night and decided to attempt a healthy, yet filling, tasty, unprocessed snack. I got the idea to make these when we were out the other night at a hot spot here in Van called Chill Winstons. We ordered the yam chips with spicy hummus and as soon as it came to the table, I said…”hey I could make that!”
-Heat your oven to 375
-Take 2 or 3 yams and put them through your food processor slicer on high (so they are nice and thin)
-massage the slices in a bit of evoo, sprinkle on some kosher salt and lay them on your baking sheet
-put them in the oven and bake until crispy (about 50 min), and flip half way through
Then make the hummus
-take a can of chic peas,
-juice from one lemon,
-1 tablespoons of tahini paste,
-2 cloves of garlic (or more if you love garlic like me;)
-throw in some cayenne pepper and franks hot sauce if you like a kick
Then mix this in your processor for about a minute. be sure and add a bit of water in the mix if you find it’s too thick- (I saw one video on youtube, where the chef added soo much water, but add what looks right to you.)
They tasted as good as they look!
Now, I am NOOOOO cook by any stretch of the imagination, BUT I really am on a mission to eat healthier, wholesome foods. I have already lost a couple pounds:) Just from cutting out sugar, dairy and any other processed crap that has a list of ingredients taller than me!
Now I need to step the fitness back up. I find with huge projects, I let the fitness slide because I tell myself I need the energy to put into voicing. BUT isn’t it like an unwritten rule, that when you exercise you actually have more energy? So I went for a 10KM run this morning and it just validating that YES, working out is WORTH IT, no matter how busy you are!!
- consists of dates, walnuts, cranberries and baked bananas!
Enjoy your day:)
