I haven’t been feeling the vegetable love lately. I know – shocker – I tend to eat tons of veggies, starting my day usually with eggs and veggies and spinach, having a salad for lunch AND plenty of veggies for dinner. But not lately. But what I do love is hummus. I don’t eat it NEARLY enough and I’ve been realizing that lately. Anyway, for this week’s WIAW, I knew I had to have some hummus in my life.
Since I wasn’t in the mood for veggies in the morning, I decided on something sweeter – some yogurt, berries and some mixed candied nuts on top of the yogurt. I saw some limited edition apple cinnamon greek yogurt and tried it out. Not bad! Enjoyed it with some herbal tea.
Lunch was semi-on-the-go. I had a busy day and didn’t have time to take a real break, so I opted for some almond butter, cashews (not pictured), crackers and an apple.
Before dinner, I had some more tea and part of a chocolate chip cookie. So good.
I also tried some of these flavor changing Tic Tacs. They start out tasting like peach and then go to lemonade flavored!
For dinner, B and I hit up Aladdin’s and I finally got my hummus fix! We started with pita and hummus and then I got the baba ghannouj wrap.
And that was about it! A perfectly delicious day. Without too many vegetables 🙂
Some questions for you:
- Do you like hummus and baba ghannouj? Which do you prefer?
- Do you find that some days it’s hard to get in all your veggies? What do you do?

I’m not sure if its more to do with the time of year, or maybe “over doing them” on occasion, but I most definitely go through phases where a salad or vegetables are the last thing I want. Definitely happens more in the winter, but I also just think it makes sense if we are used to eating a lot of veggies.. our bodies need to change things up! And soon we’ll be back to craving them, which then feels refreshing. Hummus is something I don’t seem to buy anymore, yet I do know I like it. I’m not sure why. And I LOVE baba ghannouj but hardly ever have it. Hmm. I think I have a new craving.
Yay for baba! I love it so much and don’t eat it enough. That has eggplant – so it totally counts as a vegetable right?
I’m a hugeeeeeee fan of hummus! You totally have me craving it now.
Hummus and warm pita ❤ ❤ music to my ears!
YUM! I adore hummus!! Mediterranean food is my fave! SO good! Now you got me craving a Mediterranean salad with chicken, falafel, hummus, tahini, beans, beets, the works!! YUM!!
Oh man that hummus looks so good!! Also, I need to try those Tic Tacs. My husband is obsessed with orange tic tacs, and I get him at least half a dozen for his birthday/christmas/easter etc.
What a sexy Tic Tac shot – LOL! I used to gobble those things up like crazy!!
But now – I GOBBLE DA HUMMUS! Don’t put me in a room with a bowl full of hummus if you want to have some for later, LOL!
Hummus runs in my blood. Baba ganoush is pretty great too but it’s hard to find vegan and I am too lazy (busy) to make my own. I do have my own hummus though, but also when I go to restaurants, if it is offered I usually partake as well 😛 Never enough haha
My coworkers like the pumpkin yogurt too. I never thought it would work but hey, if it’s good don’t argue.
I had no idea baba wasn’t vegan! I thought it was mainly lemon juice, some spices, tahini and of course eggplant! I’ve never made my own – it’s just so easy to get pre-made 🙂
YUM I love hummus too! Everything by Tribe is my favorite, but when I was in Africa the authentic is truly the best!
