Seedy Sunflower Hummus

In my opinion, the ideal Sunday is spent wasted entirely.

Today was almost perfectly that. It was a sleep in, watch Coronation Street, wear wooly socks for the first time all season, drink 3 cups of green tea, chat with my grandmother, listen to Sarah McLachlan, read my own tarot and make my own chickpea-spread kind of day. The dream, no? And while I can’t share with you the joys of my day…I can share the fruits of my labour.

Seedy Sunflower Hummus

  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 2 cups garbanzo beans, cooked from scratch
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 fresh lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp tamari 
  • 1 tbsp olive or flax oil

Directions

  1. Process all ingredients in a food processor til smooth and creamy.
  2. Add water if you need to until you reach the right consistency.
  3. Eat it with a spoon. Repeat all week.

Oh…and in case your wondering…the chariot signifies mastery and triumph which i choose to interpret as my success in hummus and in life.

September Circuit Workout

Jeez, pals. Is it September already? Time sure flies when you’re working full time, taking care of house and home (aka. the dumpy rental that you take way too much pride in), managing your waning late-20’s attempt at a social life and striving to continue living that enviably healthful life you used to blog about.

Well needless to say, keeping it all together has been…well… a challenge.

But it’s the new school year (#illnevergrowup) and I’m sure – like me – you’re hoping to kick it off right. No impossible to manage workout regime, no detox plan, just whole foods, consistent workouts and (if you can manage it) some positive self-talk.

Looking for a little inspiration today? Check out my first CIRCUIT WORKOUT of the month. I find circuits to be super manageable and empowering. They are bodyweight focused, whole body workouts and only take about a half hour to complete. Feel free to adapt and modify it to suit your needs and let me know how you like it!

HERE GOES…
