They Brought Hummus Into This House!

eating disorders - sandwich - snacks

Once upon a time, long long ago, I had a real issue with binge eating.  And I wouldn’t keep anything in the house I could eat mindlessly.  Potato chips, cookies (duh) but also cereal, trail mix, and even carrots with hummus.

Abe and I were in the middle of a fight once – we had unwanted house guests, and instead of expressing, “I want them to leave” I whined, “They brought hummus into this house!”  He started cracking up, but I was quite upset and would not relent – I went on to list all the reasons why having hummus in the house meant they were terrible, inconsiderate people.

Today, I’m finally able to laugh about it.  My cupboards are stocked with snacks.  And right now, there is a helluvalotta hummus in this house.

Eat Well Embrace Life sent 8 of their flavors to try.  Yes, they make Carrot Hummus.  And yes, I’ve been dipping carrots into it.

Hummus is actually a fridge staple for me these days – I like to use it as a dip, a sauce, a salad dressing, and sandwich condiment.

My latest obsession – pickles and King’s Hawaiian Rolls.

I don’t binge eat this, but I eat it a lot.

Are there any forbidden foods in your house?  Nothing is off limits anymore, but I do find that the fridge/cupboards are much more empty lately, just because we eat out so often and I hate wasting food.

P.S. Today is National Depression Screening Day.

A Freshology Day

breakfast - dinner - lunch - product review

Freshology sent me home last week with TWO bags, so Abe and I could both experience a day’s worth of meals.

Breakfast was a Rhubarb and Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin with Vanilla Ricotta and Fruit.

I didn’t bother plating the rest of the meals – just ate them right from the container!

Lunch = Curried Kabocha Squash Soup + a snack of Hummus/Pita Chips.

Dinner was a Provencal Chicken Breast, Creamy Polenta, Veggies, and Green Olive Emulsion.

To finish off the day – a non-dairy Sour Cherry Cobbler.

Everything came clearly labeled, with specific heating instructions – it’s a good option if you’re too busy to cook/have to follow a specific diet – and would make an amazing gift – maybe for Mother’s Day???

P.S. –  Nice Girls Crew Season 2 is finally available online!  And free!

P.P.S. – Abe’s cast is finally off.  Not that he’s being dramatic or anything.
