Happy Friday friends!

I haven’t been this happy to see the weekend for a good 7 days or so. But alas it’s here, and I’m celebrating with what else than a roundup of fermented soy foods!

Seriously though, I haven’t done a roundup in a while, and I wanted to spread my love for tempeh recipes with those who may not even know how to pronounce it, let alone know what it is or what to do with it.

It’s tem-pay by the way! And yes, it is fermented soy beans, but that means it’s full of protein AND probiotics! Double win.

So I’m sharing some of the best ways to prepare tempeh and it’s vanilla cousin tofu that will seriously change your mind about plants. Lessgo!

I received free samples of Sabra Hummus mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the con- test. I was not compensated for my time.

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. 🙂
