I felt like something a little sweeter so I made the Tahini Bliss from our JBT program this was a delicious change from my usual smoothie. I added our vanilla complete powder to give me the extra veggies and goodness my body needs. This will keep me going all afternoon to get me through the chaos once schools out!
I thought I would share why I love hummus with you😁🙋🌻. It is my favourite alternative to smothering food with sauces that are generally high in sugar.
I use hummus as a dip, as a sauce and even instead of butter. Here I'm using it to top off the delicious wrap I got from @wellnesswarehouse
😀. It is high in fiber, protein, Vitimin B6, zinc and the list goes on... You can thank the chickpeas for the fuller-for-longer and improved digestion side effect😁. There are also rumours that because of the manganese, magnesium and Vitimin B6, that it helps reduce symptoms associated with PMS💃😘. Then we have olive oil, garlic and lemon juice which are champions (see my other posts for more in them)🏄. I just want to bring some attention to Tahini as a mate of mine only became familiar with this term recently. Tahini has 20% complete protein which makes it a higher protein source than most nuts and it also is known for promoting healthy cell growth and for maintaining healthy skin.
Scroll down my posts to see how I make Hummus. I've had some epic comments on adding turmeric to the mix too! Love it 😁
What do you add hummus to?
Dinner = sweet potato boats stuffed with kale (massaged in a tahini dressing), chickpeas, and sunflower seeds. 🌻 Inspired by the lovely @frommybowl (but then again, when are my meals not inspired by her? #biggestfan 😂).
• 1 400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
• 1/4 cup tahini
• Juice of 1 lemon
• salt and pepper to taste
• Add all ingredients to a food processor. Blitz until smooth and combined.
• Taste and adjust flavour to your liking. *You can add different spices for flavour variations like turmeric, smoked paprika, fresh coriander, roast pumpkin/sweet potato. For a creamier hommus add a tablespoon or so of olive oil.
Hommus is full of protein, calcium, Vitamin C, good fats, and liver loving lemon. Enjoy it as a dip, spread on wraps with salad and felafel, or a dollop on top of your favourite salad or roast vege combo. X
✨Extreme Close-Up of Pear Slices w/Tahini✨ cause life’s too short to keep eating apples w/peanut butter 😂 Garnished with goji berries, organic gomasio and @jacobsensaltco cherrywood smoked salt. Finger-licking’ good 👌🏽
I’m deep in the midst of packing right now but made some of this soup to keep on hand until the actual move next week! This is the kabocha squash, tahini and coconut milk soup from @shortstackeds and it’s UNREAL. 🙌🏼 So dang good!!
Dinner at Tmol Shilshom, a cute restaurant that has a bookstore/library theme; there are books on shelves lining the walls, and the menus look like books. The first picture is a Bamba milkshake! Bamba is like a cheesepuff, but peanut butter flavored! The glass is lined with peanut butter and filled with a milkshake made with vanilla ice cream and peanut butter, topped with bamba! The restaurant is in the process of making a new menu, and this sandwich is on it. It has eggplant, egg, tomato, and parsley, with a side of chickpeas topped with tahini and parsley. #TmolShilshom#bamba#milkshake#peanutbutter#icecream#vanilla#sandwich#wholewheat#eggplant#egg#tomato#parsley#chickpeas#tahini#Jerusalem#Israel
