Weekly Lunch Prep

My grocery shopping trip was fun today. It felt good to go with a meal plan and buy all sorts of whole foods for the week to come. After returning from the store I put in a Beatles CD, turned up the stereo, and prepped for this week's lunches. I started by making a basic hummus.
Yum: Olive oil and lemons.

2 tablespoons Tahini
1 can Chick Peas
2 large cloves garlic, sliced
Juice of half lemon
Approximately 2 tablespoons olive oil
Cayenne Pepper
Place tahini, chick peas, garlic, lemon, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper into food processor. Begin to blend together while drizzling in olive oil. Blend until smooth consistencey. It might be necessary to add a bit more olive oil or a little bit of water to reach your desired consistencey.
After making the hummus I chopped all sorts of colorful and bright veggies. Don't you just love the colors of vegetables? This weeks veggie selections: Carrots, yellow squash, zuchini, red pepper, green pepper, and celery.
All packaged up for easy packing in the morning.

Let us not forget the nutritional value of these SUPERfoods!
