Kicking it With Heat and Tang on a Cracker
This isn't about that retro powdered drink, from the 1950's "Tang" this is about fire and tang in a meal, not bland. The hummus fires up the shrimp here...
Here's my meal of crackers with Fire Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, topped with pre-cooked medium size Shrimp and then sprinkled with some herbs and Sesame Seeds. I was surprised at how filling this was. I thawed out too many shrimp so some of the crackers have two, and the 12 ounce bag will last me a while.
I'm trying to experiment with foods I don't usually eat in an effort to let go of some if not most of the foods I turn to for a fast meal when I am in too much pain to cook. My freezer has mostly vegetables, but there are also mini meat loaves and meatballs, I cooked and froze, plus blueberries for yogurt and oatmeal (I hate to eat oatmeal but do because it's filling and healthy- steel cut oats) salmon, and chicken. There is the occasional sugar cone with nuts and ice cream, but I am going to give them up! Well, maybe not.
This hummus has a kick to it and the red pepper is probably good for getting Vitamin C and helping a slow metabolism. I guess you'd have to eat a lot of pepper for that, but every little bit helps. I'm not a pepper lover, at least not the very hot ones, yet this has just enough heat and tang to it.
Foods are like key ingredients in a pantry for better health. It's picking the right ones and leaving the bad ones on the shelf that is temptation. (I am more regularly leaving chocolate on the shelf and not in my cart.)
What foods do you leave on the shelf?
