2014 Vegan MOFO - Day 22 - Giveaway Day and My Latest Breakfast Obsession

Honestly this could be eaten any time of day. But for me, I like savory stuff for the early meal of the day. The other day I was totally strapped for time and creativity. I grabbed a few staples from my fridge and counter top. Last week's Chow Locally box had roma tomatoes and cucumbers which are perfect for this easy meal. You can sub any type of tomato or cucumber about 3/4 cup each. Dice up a medium ripe avocado. Top with 2 tablespoon hemp seeds and 1/3 cup of your favorite hummus, salt and pepper if you please and DONE! I like to squeeze a touch of lemon juice over the top for a little added tartness. For variety, change up the type of hummus you use. This version was an artichoke hummus.

It wouldn't be MOFO Monday without a giveaway now would it? I have one more Chow Locally box to give away. One lucky winner is going to take the prize this week.

  5. think I have everything I need in the frig to make this except for the hummus. I will need to stop on my way home,
    I like the freshness of the local grown vegetables and fruits as well as the great variety, I have gotten the Chow boxes before and there are always things in there that I don't recognize or have never tried before. It forces me to try new things and so far, it's been a great experience. Everyone should try a fresh fruit or veggie that they have never had. before..... Be adventurous! (Denise)

  6. Eating locally gives me a sense of contributing to the sustainability of fresh local produce and just giving back in general. Netoya
