Is It Really Only Tuesday?

by Valerie on August 4, 2010 · 5 comments

Hi everyone – it has been a heck of a long couple of days for me at work.  I did make it to an actual yoga class for Tuesday night yoga tonight, so I am happy about that, especially since my visit to the ER last month, Tuesday night yoga had involved a lot of savasana and/or child’s pose and not much else.  I have a post brewing about fear and yoga but that’s not happening tonight.  Instead, let’s talk about crackers and dip.  I love crackers and dip on days where work is the kind of hectic where you can’t take a break to eat.  My usual solution is hummus  but today I put the hemp seeds from my package of  IHerb goodies to good use:

Cheezy dip

I made Averie’s Cheezy Hemp Nacho Dip.  It is absolutely delicious.  I had it with some Mary’s Gone Crackers for my snack at 5pm, and it really made my day better, especially since I had just had some  crackers with hummus for lunch and was starving by 5pm and still had a couple more hours of work before going to yoga at 8.45pm..  Averie has suggested trying it with cashews instead of hemp seeds, so I may do that next time, though I have to admit I am really partial already to hemp seeds.  This is a lovely dip in that it tastes rich but does not feel heavy,which is a great combination.  Also, Averie is having a giveaway for a TofuXpress gizmo. Ok, it’s not a gizmo, but my brain is a little fried.  If you are sick of using paper towels and/or dishtowels to press your tofu, you should definitely check out the giveaway.  On that note, I am off to finish slurping on my green smoothie and to sleep.  Good night!

Valerie! hi! Thanks for posting about the cheezy hemp dip.

I actually really love this dip more

it's just a little bit different and really awesome…trust me, you will love it!

also if you make my kale chip coating, you can use that as a's what happens when you use cashews as a base rather than seeds.

sorry to drop those links in but wanted you to see them b/c if you have hemp seeds + cashews + nooch, you have got to try those..omg youll be happy :)

thx for all your entries on the give away and the linkback

I hope you have a super nite!
