But I did want to share my new favorite light weekend snack/meal. Usually dinner is my most complete meal so lunch and breakfast are traditionally quick, easy-to-make and go foods that I can eat on the bus (bad I know) or eat quickly between meetings at work.
Anyhow, lately on the weekends I've really been enjoying what I call the "potpourri plate," which consists of: a wedge of Laughing Cow Light cheese (still creamy and with a nice taste, not what you might think of a "light" cheese) with table water crackers, Wheat Thins and hummus. My favorite hummus is Cedar Crest, which I get at Treasure Island or Whole Foods. While I'm still new to hummus tasting, I prefer this one's creamier texture, compared to Tribe, which is a bit "grainier" and Athenos which has an perplexing after taste (ironically it was named "Best Hummus" by Men's Health, who obviously haven't tried this brand).
Anyhow, below is a picture of my cute "potpourri plate" that I enjoyed while reading the Sunday Tribune today. Then usually after this I end up having some Girl Scout cookies, but I make the effort to have something healthier first :)
