This past weekend I ran my first mile! Well my first mile of the summer that is. I think I ran a whole one last summer, but to be honest I don’t really remember. When I talk about running, it’s usually for 5 minutes at a time. However, my mom has signed me up for a 5k in June, so now I really need to get my training butt in gear! I’ve never done a 5k before, so any advice that you have is greatly welcomed!!
What did I want to snack on when I got home? Water (since I went out when it was 75 degrees and super hot…why didn’t I wait??) and then this hummus. This is a great snack, and perfect for after a session. I know there’s debate back and forth whether or not hummus is really a “diet friend or foe” but it’s got great ingredients so I’m not that worried about it. A little olive oil, a little lemon juice, and a lot of chickpeas make for an awesome dish!
I even got Bren addicted to this one, and he’s not usually a big fan (which he keeps reminding me of). We also cut the pita chips into strips instead of wedges, but we baked them the same way as we did here. Now that I’ve fueled up on pita chips and hummus, I just need to get out there again and run another mile!
