The hummus, avocado, feta trifecta

Just so you know and aren’t wondering — it is still really hot outside!  I had to run across the street to buy salad dressing, and I almost melted in the process.  True story.

For a snack this morning, I had my usual baby carrots.  This is a new trend, as you may have noticed.  It’s such a nice, light snack.  I don’t usually put carrots in my salad because they require just that extra bit of preparation that I am not willing to perform, so I love having baby carrots around.

Baby carrots:  For the lazy carrot lover

I had a salad for lunch and, as expected, my tub of spinach is now all gone.  Luckily, husband picked up a huge 1 pounder yesterday so I am good for spinach-consuming for the rest of the week.  Phew.

  • Baby spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Orange pepper
  • Mushrooms
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 sliced dates
  • Scoop of hummus
  • Feta cheese
  • Sunflower seeds

I loved this salad!  There is something magical that happens when hummus, feta, and avocado are combined.  Add some sweet dates into the mix and it’s almost overwhelming.  Hehe.

Of course, I had two squares of sea salt dark chocolate for dessert.  I missed it over the weekend!  Maybe I should keep a bar at home and a bar at work.

Or a bar at home, a bar at work, and a bar in my backpack.  Hmmmm.

      Feta in one’s life is of paramount importance 🙂

    I love the idea of dates + feta + hummus…perhaps I will try that in the future. 🙂

      It is made by “Lindt”. You can find it anywhere! I got mine at Loblaw’s but I’ve seen it at Shoppers Drugmart too. It is delicious (to put it mildly!).
