Is it possible to get too excited about new discoveries on BTD??  

NAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!  

I have a problem giving up mayonnaise. Love the stuff. On everything.

Today, I made a discovery out of desperation. I had a craving for good hummus and found some at Whole Foods that was completely compliant (one version was made with spinach and artichoke and even had bennies in it!!). Well when making my lunch I had run out of mayonnaise and am trying to not buy any more and make myself find alternatives. So I made a turkey sandwich on Ezekiel bread with some hummus on it.

Oh. My. Word.

That was SO good. I went grocery shopping for something else after, and passed the mayonnaise and didn't even want any because the hummus tasted so much better. It was great!

I'm so excited!

My biggest fear about changing my edible lifestyle was that I would no longer be able to enjoy food and it would become a chore rather than a joy. Oh I was SO wrong! I enjoy it MUCH more now that I cook more and have some good solid boundaries to bounce off of that I can easily live with. And I'm not abusing my body with the junk food (fast food) that I was binging on, starving for nutrients. Now I just get giddy over every new culinary discovery and become a little more "gourmet" every day, which is thrilling for me. I'm becoming a real foodie!!

This is so much fun!!!

Ok enough giddiness. Back to work with me....

Great tip. I've made some hummus using fava bean that turned out nicely.

Yes...amontgomery1978...isn't it wonderful to find new ways of doing things that taste better than the foods with all of the avoids in it. yummmmmm.

Keep experimenting.  Sometimes things turn out really good and others well...back to the drawing board.

Do you mean hummus made of chick peas?

Yes. According to typebase it's a neutral for O sec, which I am eating like until I know my sec status. But I figure the same type of recipe would work made from any compliant bean.

Chick pea hummus without preservatives lasts 4-5 days at most (in the fridge). It's better to prepare it at home in a food processor.

I frequently make hummus from pinto beans or great northern beans. GNB don't lend as much beany flavor as do pintos. Cannellini beans also work well.

I often make my own mayonnaise using lemon juice, agave nectar (just a smidge), oil, salt, and an egg yolk. Tastes very similar to Best Foods Mayo, which is my all-time fave.

I use great northern beans too.  Same everything else, garlic, green onions, cumin, salt.  Used to use lots of freshly ground black pepper....
