I think my favorite outfit is Friday.

Not casual jeans. Or Hawaiian shirt Friday. Just Friday. It always fits me, and hear it’s the new black…but this is coming from the girl who knows the inside of the produce section better than the inside of the mall. Fashionista definitely isn’t my superlative.

But do you know what tomorrow is???

I alluded to this on Monday’s post, but tomorrow is THE day folks. And what better way to dive headfirst into the holiday than with a pool of cheesy hummus-y dip!

I’m beginning to think that whole if you don’t use it, you lose it sentiment has some truth to it.

Since sugar has gradually made it’s departure out of my daily life aside from fruit, I find myself on the savory side of things more often than sweet.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one to turn down an ice cream cone (especially soft serve twist) or a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie still gooey from the oven. I still craving something sweet after meals. But I find I’m satisfied with a piece of fruit or just a bite of something sweet instead of uncontrollably bingeing on whatever lay in front of me.

 I also find my energy levels more stable when I reach for something with more protein, fat or both in it. Banana WITH peanut butter. Almonds AND a hard-boiled egg. Oats WITH hummus.

I know, hang in there with me. If you haven’t figured out most of the recipes on here err on the side of out there, you’re in for a rude awakening.

Hummus and veggies. Hummus and whole grain crackers. Spread on a sammy instead of mayo. Been there, done that. While still delicious, I wanted to show the more adventurous side of this brave little chickpea spread for this month’s Recipe Redux contest with Sabra.

I’ve seen some more savory snack bars out there, which makes my heart swoon, but y’all know I’m in favor for the ball or bite form when it comes to snacks.

Plus, it’s kinda like having one giant chickpea. Or a chickpea pinata filled with texture, flavor, and kazoos.

Did you know that National Hummus Day is a thing? It’s a thing. And it’s happening May 13th. Plenty of time to make some giant chickpea pinata no bake energy bites, and yummus the hummus in unity.

I used different spice blends to roll my bites in, which is completely optional, but I like having options. These are completely versatile too, which is something I love in a snack. You can make the same thing, but have it be completely different just by changing the flavor hummus you use, the different nuts or seeds you add, or what seasoning you roll it into. The snowflake of snacks, no two are exactly alike. I a-like that. 🙂

Guyz, are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day, or are you READY for St. Patrick’s Day?!

…great me either.

Seeing as I’m not much a beer fan anyway, SPD doesn’t really do much for me….other than da FOOD.

But come on, are you really that surprised?

Maybe I’m jumping the gun a little early, but I LOVE corned beef and cabbage. Growing up, my mom would make a boiled dinner every year, full of carrots, cabbage, taters, and salty McSalterson corned beef.
