Hummus - it's what's for breakfast...

Everyone at Casa de Spryte needs to lighten up a bit. (well... except Bob) If you're a regular reader of my blog... you've seen the endless parade of fried stuff and stuff covered in cheese... plus all the baked stuff!

Anyway... I've been trying to eat a healthier breakfast at home lately. (as opposed to driving through Wendy's or McDonald's for a Chicken Biscuit or McSkillet Burrito; which I do FAR too often)

I had some hummus left over from Baba D's. Their hummus is so creamy and delicious. It's a gazillion times better than the hummus I make at home.

I also had a gorgeous tomato, half a cucumber and my favorite flat bread.

It's not like me to go meatless. I usually like lean turkey or chicken for breakfast. But I decided to make a veggie wrap for breakfast today.

I LOVE these... they're always very soft and pliable.

I haven't found any Crack Dill yet this year... but I keep checking!

Have a great weekend!

I need to lighten up too (as I eat a piece of carrot cake with cream cheese frosting). Love the crack cilantro.

Yum! I love your breakfast - any kind of wrap is great early in the a.m. And loved the crack dill ;)

I love that kind of food for breakfast, very nice!

Bob said...

Awesome. That flat bread looks mad good, I wonder if we have it up here...

girlichef said...

Funny, cause cilantro is like crack to me (well, I imagine it is, anyway)... But, yum...this is a great idea. Hubby & I love hummus and it looks perfect snuggled into this "wrap"!

Danielle said...

Sounds like a wonderful healthy breakfast. Great way to start off the day!

That does look like a great breakie, think I'll make something like that for hubby this week. :)

Crack cilantro-ha ha! Mine is in a pot and won't grow, and neither will my basil, chives or oregano. Maybe I need to shove it in some cracks?

I loved hummus before I developed a wee bit of an allergy. Still, I can appreciate a breakfast like this!

I'm watching out for my crack cilantro - last year they were all over but it may still be too early here. Fingers crossed!

I like savoury breakfasts and having hummus for breakfast sounds good.
