Zesty Gluten Free Hummus

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Hello There!

How are you this chilly Thursday? A cold front came in last night and brrrrr it's cold in here there must be some toros in the atmosphere. Oh crap, did I just quote Bring It On. Yep! The inner cheerleader in me is always bursting to get out. I just can't help it! I've had complete strangers come up to me after class and ask me if I was a cheerleader back in the day. Hahaha. I used to not know how I felt about that, but then I just decided to embrace it. I used to cheer on the Tigers, and now I serve as everyone in my classes personal cheerleader to fitness! :) I'll take it.

Speaking of being a cheerleader, sometimes we all need to be our own cheerleader. I came across this a while back on Pinterest, and I think it's a wonderful reminder to be positive each and every day even on the long tough days.

Today, tomorrow and always I will try to do these things with a full heart! Will you?

Ok, I'll stop channeling my inner motivational speaker/cheerleader. Aren't they the same sometimes? On to the recipe of the day. I have been looking for a gluten free hummus for a while (more on why gluten free in a later post), but haven't had any luck so I decided to create my own. I've come across quite a few hummus recipes in the blog world, but for some reason I have always been a little intimidated by the idea. This weekend I gave myself a little pep talk and dove in. I must admit it was a success, and now I have enough hummus on hand to feed an army, or at least top all of my salads for twp weeks! :)
