Simple Chia Cereal

You gotta love the simplicity of this morning cereal. It’s packed full of fiber, Omegas and protein. It tastes so good that it’s become my go to breakfast food.  I sometimes make this the night before if I know I’m going to have a busy morning and that way I won’tRead More

Spicy Tangy Hummus

It doesn’t take long to make this creamy, salty, spicy savory hummus spread. I eat it with celery and cucumber sticks and Mary’s crackers most of the time but it’s also delicious wrapped up in a collard green with some sprouts. I also use it instead of salad dressing or onRead More
