Spicy, Oh No I Forgot to Buy, Black Beans Hummus

        Hola Fitties,
I'm in the mood for a sandwich this week. Yes, I know sandwiches are known for carbs and processed meats but let me tell you how I make it first then you can judge me. Instead of using fatty spreads on my bread/wrap I use hummus. This isn't the regular liquidy hummus you get in the stores, this is a chunky seasoned hummus that just makes me happy.

   Below is the recipe and pics of how I make my hummus and chicken wraps. Enjoy.

Spicy, Oh No I Forgot to Buy Black Beans, Hummus
2 cans chick peas (wash and drain)
2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp tahini
1/4 cup cilantro
4 scallion
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tspn cumin
1 tspn red pepper flakes
dash of salt
1 jalepeno

Use a food processor or a blender to mix all the ingredients and voila you got hummus :)

Now, I wasn't just going to throw the hummus in the fridge. I got to mix it with something. So, I decided to remake one of my favorite sandwiches from Press 195.

Spicy Hummus Chicken Wrap

Whole wheat wrap cut into halves
2 tbsp fresh made hummus
1/2 slice of provolone cheese ( this cheese smells, but it tastes so good)
1/4 cup chicken breasts ( I used leftovers from a chicken I baked the day before)

Sear on stove top to make cheese melt or use a panini  press and their you have it. A nice tasty sammich.

Until next time fitties.

I'm on one

Hello fitties,
    so one of my goals for 2014 was to go to the gym more. I finally decided to go on a consistent basis mid January. I noticed when I stay home I take a lot of breaks and flex in the mirror during my workouts. At the gym, I go with a set plan and execute it. My workouts have been a mixture of treadmill running, +Spartan Race WOD's, +iamtherealdp WOD's, +Nike training club abs and weight lifting. Let's just say these circuits have left me sore and stronger. So much so that I swear I'm seeing definition in the ab area. You do not know how geeked I am off this. I've wanted a six pack since I was 12 and each day I am getting much closer to having the physique I desire. I've also been eating way better. Meal prep has helped my diet so much. When I work out I don't feel like I am heavy or need to throw up any more since I am properly fueling throughout the day and I stopped over eating.  Below are some of the workouts I posted on my instagram account.

   How are y'all doing with your workouts? Is anyone enjoying clean eating? I find that its not so bad, especially if you eat stuff you like. If you need inspiration or recipes please check out @username_DopeAF on instagram. His recipes are tasty and filling.

 Until next time Fitties.
