I'm super excited 3 people have expressed interest in the 10 day cleanse. My friend, Kara and my parents. My mom asked me to order her a kit for herself and my Dad...however, I'm not quite sure he has been let in on this little secret yet. I'm so proud of them. I feel amazing approaching Day 10 and I hope they feel the same soon, too!
Got up, sparked did the shred 1 workout, put some steel cut oats on to cook and did the core stretch...fun fact steel cut oat cooking time is the same as core stretch video. fun! Picked M up from her sleepover and got to creating in the kitchen!
I recalled seeing a recipe somewhere for cilantro cucumber hummus. I had almost all the ingredients I needed at home and decided to give it a whirl. I had dried cilantro in the cupboard...I imagine this would be waaaay better with fresh herbs. Everything is better with fresh herbs! (new goal: grow some fresh herbs.)
Now, friends if you have a heavy duty blender such as the Blendec, try this at home. Otherwise use a food processor to pulse the mixture until just blended (level one on blendtec) Or if you are in a pinch use a potato masher to mash all the ingredients and hand mix together, I'm way too inpatient for this method, so I use the good old Blendtec. If you use your grandma's old oster you will surely blow the motor and that's just no fun for anyone.
