AND...... I have a cold.  

Totally healthy all bloody winter than BLAMO! this month. First the 3 week low level, but you definitely are not ok Flu and now....The endless winter you can't be well for more than 2 weeks Cold. 

I don't feel like cooking and instead of eating my weight in tortilla chips....
Garlicky garlic garlic. 

I remembered I made this CRAZY garlic-y tahini dressing the other morning in a haze. Perfect.

Throw in all sorts of crap from the fridge and BAM. Nice right? Pour a ton of this healing,seriously low fat dressing all over it and that's a LUNCH!


red peppers
chick peas
cauliflower
cucumber
black Beans
S&P to taste
       Tahini Dressing !!!!  

BEWARE: If you don't LOVE garlic, cut it down to 1 clove. HOWEVER you won't get all that alone time and health that comes with the MORE garlic-y version.


HEAL ME: Low Fat Garlic-y Tahini Dressing

1/4 cup chickpeas
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 tablespoon Tahini
2 cloves FRESH GARLIC
2 teaspoons fresh ginger
S&P to taste

you could also add:
  1/4 tablespoon Tamari or Soy
  1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
           ...if you like that kind of thing.

Blend until smooth and refrigerate.



A note about Tahini: pour off 3/4 of the oil slick from the top of the jar. It works exactly the same and cuts down on the fat by ALOT.
