Oh man...single digits now.
Day 9...eeeek only 9 more days until the big

Day 9: Make something yummy.

So the hubs an I are starting a three week cleanse after my birthday, 
(I want birthday cake...hence 'after')
but for the past few weeks we have been making a change in our diets...
to sort of ease our selves into it.

We love food.
We are a snacky family.
Because of those two facts one of the biggest changes 
in our previous diet was the elimination of of processed snacks.
NO more junk food.

While we are not going crazy just yet,
we have been making that change.

So, today I made humus...instead of buying it.
Sort of a play on a 'My New Roots' recipe.

Roasted Golden Beet Humus

1 cup of roasted golden beets
1 cup dried garbanzo beans
1/2 a large lemon
3 tbsp of olive oil
2 tbsp Tahini
1/3 cup of pine nuts
salt & pepper

Pre-heat oven to 350°
Follow instructions for soaking and cooking garbanzo beans.
Meanwhile chop beets.
In a large mixing bowl drizzle raw beets 
with a splash of olive oil and sprinkle with salt. 
Spread into a single layer on a baking sheet and cook for 30 mins.

Step 2:
In your food processor
(or bowl if you use an emersion blender like me)
Combine all of the ingredients and purée. 
And enjoy! Serving ours with celery sticks. Yum.
