Yummy Saturday

Post #2 of the day. Go me!

I’m pretty happy with how today has gone. I managed a short jog (tomorrow will be longer) and some healthy food.

Let’s start with the food I’ve eaten…

Breakfast: banana oatmeal pancake with 1/3c oats (2), 2 egg whites (0), 1/2 banana (1), cinnamon (0)… after it was cooked I topped it up with some breakfast icing made of 1/4c Greek Liberte (0), 1/2 banana (1), 1tsp almond butter (1) and some cinnamon (0).  SOOOO GOOD. Check it out (I couldn’t stop taking pictures of it):

That may just be my Valentine’s breakfast tomorrow!

Lunch: flatout wrap (1), 2tbsp homemade hummus (0), 30g light cheddar (2), cucumbers, mushrooms, hummus, mustard (0)

Followed by 1/2 peanut butter Larabar (2)


Not sure what’s for dinner. We’re hitting up the food court before we go see a movie (I talked Alex into seeing a chick flick)!!


So… today I ventured into the kitchen to make some hummus.  I decided I wanted to try roasting garlic to go in it. I’ve never eaten roasted garlic before… let alone made it.  BUT, I figured since I do enjoy garlic I’d give it a try (and I had garlic to use up!).

I took a garlic bud, cut off the top, put it in tinfoil, added a teeny bit of EVOO and sea salt and pepper. I wrapped it up and put it in the oven for 35min at 400F

Here’s what it looked like when it came out:


I started out trying to use a fork and knife to get the cloves out… but quickly realized it was much easier to just use my fingers (once it had cooled some). They were soft and mushy but tasted SO GOOD! The little hint of sea salt was perfect!

So, then on to making the hummus… took a tin of chick peas, the roasted garlic and some Frank’s and put it in the food processor



Then… taking from Tara’s idea long ago… I added an extra kick


You see… I didn’t just add some hot peppers… I also used some of the juice from the jar in the hummus… instead of any EVOO!! It’s so freaking good!  Really, the only points in the whole thing are the chick peas!

I hereby present the spicy roasted garlic hummus!


I actually had it in my wrap for lunch… so good! All of today’s food has been really good!

Oh… I should add my BLT’s for today though. I ate a few leftover strawberry meringues and literally one bite of the lasagna casserole… so I’m saying it’s only 1pt.

Total before dinner: 11

Water consumed so far: 2.5L

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Great idea adding the roasted garlic to the hummus, roasted garlic is so much yummier! :o)

1. I'm SO making those pancakes, holy yum!

2. Be sure and let us know how the movie was please.

3. Roast garlic is amazing... you should try mixing it in with mashed potatos.

4. I must start making my own hummus instead of paying $4 for a tub of it. :)
