Question for you guys (apparently “you guys” is a very Midwestern term).

Do you eat 3 main meals a day or do you graze/snack/eat lots of small meals?

I ask this only because I’m like a cow when it comes to food. I eat all day long. Blake is a 3 meal a day kind of guy who only eats when he realizes he’s starving. I’m the type that likes to prevent the starvation feeling and just prevent it from ever even happening :P

I love keeping snacks on hand at home because…I’m always hungry. My mom always references me as one of the dalmatian pups from 101 dalmatians…the one that’s always hungry. I feel his pain.

This hummus is the perfect snack to have on hand or even make for a get together! Everyone loves hummus. Am I right or am I right? It’s so easy to make and only calls for a few simple ingredients. Plus, it brings me back to my Vibe Israel trip :D
