Guacammus

Do you like Hummus or Guacamole more? I know- I can’t decide either.. so I made both! call it what you want: Guacammus.. Hummole.. here’s how I made it : There’s a ton of recipe’s out there for it, but this one I put together is simple, creamy, and has a little kick!

Plop all of these ingredients into your food processor:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 can reduced sodium chick peas
  • 1/3 c red onion
  • 1/2 c fresh cilantro
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 T tahini
  • 2 t lime juice
  • 1/4 t salt
  • drizzle of EVOO
  • dash to two of cayenne pepper (to taste)

Have I ever said how much I love my Ninja food processor? It’s pretty awesome, it never stops amazing me, even when it’s jam packed!

blend until creamy and dreamy.. then dig in.

it’s a party in your mouth, it won’t know if your eating hummus or guacamole! It’s the best of both worlds really, sooooo good :)

Oh man. This is one I will definitely be making again.. and I suggest you try it too and let me know how you like it!

This morning I had another Physical Therapy session. I’ve been going once a week. My knee’s are feeling much better, but still have some pain after a run or a long day at work. We did some stretching and then they did this stretch they always do to my right hip. It pulls it out almost, feeling like it has to pop, but I never got the pop. But today I got it. and it was awesome! It was like instant relief, I couldn’t believe how good it felt. All those weeks of the pinching and pain in my right hip flexor, gone. I hope it doesn’t come back!

Went to the gym after P.T and did the ARC TRAINER for 30 min. This thing is pretty cool, it’s like a cross between a stepper and an elliptical. Got a pretty good workout on there! 30 min. Ave hr. 146. Headed home, and made my Spinach Banana Oat smoothie.. instead of drinking it, I made it a little thicker and had it “soup style”. YUM.

Smoothie’s fill me up more than other lunches.. How about you?

I used my Ninja twice today?! you have got to get one of these. I think they have a new model now, even BETTER!

Work tomorrow 3a-3p, then who knows what’s up for the weekend! Never made it to a farmer’s market last weekend so maybe this Sunday we will find one!

Updating the Blog

Went over to my Brother’s tonight to check out his crib.. he’s the one that’s making this blog possible! (Thanks Eric!) We went out for some sushi, it was amazing and just a stone’s throw away from his condo (lucky duck).

SO..

Foodie Cycles will be undergoing some construction, so stay tuned for a new and improved site :) Bear with me here!
