My Healthy Lunch

All I had for breakfast was oatmeal and an orange. And two cups of coffee with soy milk but I don't consider that breakfast. Coffee first thing when I wake up is as necessary for me as oxygen. I really wasn't even hungry for lunch but ate anyway. Two slices of Life Changing Bread toasted in the Panini Press. I spread my homemade hummus first and topped that with avocado mashed with lemon juice. It was so good and satisfying. My last batch of hummus was a hit so I made another batch with the ingredients I always have on hand. Costco has the most wonderful BIG jars of organic oven dried tomatoes packed in organic olive oil. They are super delicious and I use them in salads in the winter, as a pizza topping, or in anything that needs a taste boost. I buzzed a can of garbanzo beans with a generous helping of those tomatoes and lemon juice and kept tasting until it was just right. I could eat it with a spoon. YUM. I still have enough of the bread to last me for at least two more days. I'm going to make another batch tomorrow and let it sit overnight and bake it on Friday. It really seems to agree with me and keeps me from getting hungry so I'm going to continue eating it as long as the magic is working.
There were two women on (click to watch) CBS This Morning from The Well and Good Website. I'll be checking it out quite often because the interview was quite interesting. They are like the Angie's list for products and classes and fads that pertain to health and wellness. Looks as if I jumped on the bandwagon just in time, doesn't it?

I want to make my own humus, without garlic. I do like garlic but there are just times you don't want it. I will try it in my mini processor, as I gave away my big one. And the mashed avocado looks yummy.

Thanks for sharing .... I watched the interview.

Karen in VA....I left out the garlic on purpose. I like it but rarely eat anything with garlic during the day...just for dinner. I didn't have any tahini so I left that out also and my hummus was just fine. I might add olives to my next batch. Your mini prep will be perfect.
