Black Bean Hummus

So I found this Black Bean Hummus recipe on Pinterest but modified it a bit to my likings. I love hummus and any different variations that I can find I'm all for it, b/c making it at home is way cheaper than buying b/c you get a whole lot more!

Here are my modifications:

- 1 more can of black beans
- 1/3 cup of yogurt instead of oil (the yogurt makes it creamier)

Enjoy with some chips, cracker or veggies!

Eating Better

Matt had me watch some shows about the food industry and our society and how the things were are eating are contributing to bad habits and unhealthy bodies. Well after watching those shows we decided to try to eat better by decreasing our meat intake and increase our intake of veggies and fruits. Well so far so good. We've done it for a week and making meatless meals for a week are easy! I still have those frozen meals that are mainly chicken and I will use them from time. My grocery trip was much lighter on my wallet. Scott, my son, loves the meals that I've made and gobbles them right up. :) I love that the meals take have the time than they did if there was a meat involved. I wanted to share with you some recipes that I've found, Pinterest is wonderful thing! Here is my Pinterest board Meatless Meals for some inspiration.
