Lemon Basil Hummus Recipe and Some Links to Snack On #hgsoulfood

Basil Hummus Recipe from The Hungry Goddess

Chickpeas are counted as a mandatory pantry staple and nutritious hurricane supply in my world.  I have a minimum of one case on hand at any given moment and purely for the moments like this past week when I needed a quick, healthy snack with wow flavor – Lemon Basil Hummus Recipe (no tahini needed!).  I had this gorgeous bunch of basil from the Green Market and turning it into hummus seemed like the most sensible action.  Quick hummus recipes are simple and addictive – see my Avocado Hummus Recipe.  Roasted Chickpeas are like popcorn that is really good for you – sprinkle come spices and roast them!

While munching on my gorgeous Lemon Basil Hummus, I was cruising the internet and found some lovely links to go with your snack.

Morning Rituals (of Wise Women and awesome peeps) – What do your mornings look like?  I do Morning Pages a la Julia Cameron every morning and pick a book that inspires me to riff on.  Mantras are always playing in the background in the morning and coffee is mandatory.  A fruit and green smoothie has become part of that morning ritual as well.  No computer until my writing is done and I can BREATHE!
