We had a super busy weekend, but everything was beautiful and we're so happy for the newlyweds! She is a wonderful friend to me, she is my son's Godmother and she stood in my wedding almost seven years ago! Whew, we're gettin' old!
My boys and I went out for a nice run this morning, but by the time we made it out the door, it was already 91 degrees...yuck! We pushed through and did about 3 miles. We came home and decided to do an ab/back workout on Exercise TV and it turned out to be a decent, 20 minute workout! The boys actually did it with me the entire time...they were cracking me up, trying to copy what I was doing! Nothing like having my boys there to workout with me!! While we were on our run, my youngest-he's only 2, asked if he could wear my iPod to jam to the music! Ha!
not sure why I don't look red and sweaty in this pic? Trust me, I was!
I'm SO proud of my boys for wanting to exercise and be active with their Momma. On those days where I am lacking motivation, they push me to finish! Thanks boys!
I'm now addicted to this easy hummus recipe! We're fixing to prepare some for lunch right NOW!
MY SUPER, EASY HUMMUS!
1/2 can garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained and rinsed
1-2 clove garlic, chopped, depending on how much garlic you like! I use 2!
lemon juice-I squeeze 1/2 lemon into blender
splash of extra virgin olive oil
splash of water
Add all to Magic Bullet, or whatever blender you prefer! Blend until like paste-or whatever texture you like your Hummus to have! I serve on Joseph's oat flax bread, at only 60 calories! I garnish with baby spinach, add hummus and ENJOY! I seriously make this probably three or four times a week, because it's so easy and tastes delicious! I used to make a hummus recipe with more ingredients but found this one to be great, if not better than the other!
