There is something about a new year that is so refreshing.
Even if it doesn’t mean you suddenly become famous or have your dream body.
As long as you set attainable goals, and actually work your hard towards them, then you will see progress.
Every year, I like to take a moment to reflect on what this past year has brought me. All of the things I have accomplished, the goals I wish I had set, and the things I want to change in the year to come.
Do you ever have those things you say you want to do, but never seem to get around to doing them?
I know this might sound silly, but I have been wanting to make homemade hummus for 3 years now.
It wasn’t necessarily a goal, but I couldn’t get over how easy it is to make, and why I hadn’t made the time for it yet.
But this year I FINALLY got to it. And let me tell you, homemade hummus is SO good! We ate the whole thing in one day…
Now that I have an easy recipe, and a lot of left-over tahini, I am going to start making my own hummus on a regular basis.
I have tried really hard to be on top of making most of our food from scratch. But some things take a lot of time that I just don’t always have.
Every minute in the kitchen adds up so quickly.
I can’t count how many times I think I have enough time to make something, and then forget about all of the time it takes to clean up.
Trying to eat healthy on a budget can be hard, and homemade is always cheaper.
That’s why I get so excited when I find an easy recipe that is healthy, not too expensive, and takes hardly any time to prepare.
- 1 can chickpeas
- ⅓ cup tahini
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2-4 cloves garlic (more for on top)
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ cup water (or from the can)
- parsley for on top
- Put all the ingredients into a food processor. Blend for 3-4 minutes or until desired texture.
- Garnish with garlic and parsley.
- Store in the fridge.
