Hummus and Garlic Stuffed Olives
I don't know what I did before I had a Vitamix to make hummus AND I don't know what I did before garlic stuffed olives! You can make hummus in something other than a Vitamix, but I find it tastes a lot better coming out of a high-speed blender. I know that's not helpful if you don't have one; however, it is still infinitely cheaper, and better for your health, to make it yourself.
The garlic stuffed olives are available from President's Choice or Costco.
I make my hummus with a combination of the following ingredients:
* Organic beans taste A LOT better
** If you're like me, and you have autoimmune disease, you may find you digest canned beans much better than home-made ones. My theory for why that is happening is because the canning process reduces some of the problematic ingredients, such as agglutinin. I have experienced IMMEDIATE autoimmune flares from eating beans I had prepared myself, using all the best techniques to render them easy to digest. Want to learn more? click here!
What I Eat
I want to give you an idea of how to eat healthfully on a restricted diet, without a lot of work, by showing you how I eat! I eat strictly gluten-free. You'll find A LOT of veggies in this blog! I eat both fish and meat a few times a week (local and/or humane, whenever possible), and dairy when I'm visiting family and friends, or eating out. I hope you find this blog inspiring and interesting!
