Happy Mother's Day!

My husband made smoothies for me for lunch for mother's day. YUM!!

We just throw in whatever frozen berries we have in the fridge, always a banana, some ice, Dannon light n fit vanilla yogurt, and voila. So yummy!

One thing I've tried too is to add some nuts. Cashews work good. It gives it a nutty flavor and is more filling. Just a little healthy alternative to try.

Hope you all ate something scrumptious for Mother's Day!!

Quick Dinner Idea

The other night I had nothing I wanted for dinner except this delicious hummus recipe. Have you made it yet? You have to. So yum! Even if you think, ewww, hummus is nasty. You should give it a second try with this recipe. And if you've never tried it, it's just a bean dip. That's all it is. But, a very yummy healthy one!

Anyway, so back to the other night. I was craving hummus, but could not justify it alone as a meal, so I decided to try a

Grilled Hummus Sandwich with Avocado
. I think it would be delish with tomato too...

So, please try taking the above mentioned hummus recipe, putting it between two pieces of bread, grill it up with some of your favorite margarine or butter, and add some avocado and tomato slices after it is nice and golden brown.

We paired it with some sweet potato fries. Just take a sweet potato, slice or dice it up, toss with some EVOO, salt and pepper, and bake at 400 for about 15 minutes.

There you go.

Plus, the hummus recipe makes a ton, so this is just another way to not let it go to waste.

Oh, and it is approved by my 3 year old even!
