Fruit Cereal

Now and then I like to take a break from the Green Smoothie in the morning... not all that often, I admit, still, one must vary sometimes, right?

Yesterday was one of those days so I had a big bowl of Fruit Cereal, a recipe inspired by some of the recipes in Brendan Brazier's The Thrive Diet.

If you are using Chia Seeds, always start with this step:
Place about 1 Tbsp of Chia Seeds in a small bowl and generously cover with water. Let it stand about 5-10 mn. or until it turns into a gel.

Zucchini Hummus

I knew today was going to be a work in the yard kind of day, so I planned for a quick, refreshing lunch and got some zucchinis at the store yesterday. This takes minutes to fix and you'll love it.

Let me point out this Hummus is a no-bean-no-olive oil, wholesome healthy dip, good with any veggies and/or crackers you happen to have on hand. It's nothing fancy and it does the job.

Most recipe call for way too much olive oil if you ask me -not that I count calories, mind you, but I'm pretty sure oil carries quite the punch in that department.

Actually, let's look it up... (be right back)
