This year, Troy is teaching 4 different subjects: honors physics, earth science, astronomy and regular physics so it is going to be a busy year. Healthy eating is important to me and I love coming up with quick and healthy dishes that will be perfect for when life is busy.
I pack Troy's lunch everyday for school and love packing hummus for healthy snacks for him. I will pack it with chips, crackers or vegetables. It is a protein packed snack that he loves and is different than just having plain chips or something.

This roasted red pepper hummus takes 5 minutes or less to make. It makes a great addition to a packed school lunch with vegetables, chips or pretzels. It is also great on a sandwich or wrap. After school, Troy, Adalyn and I love to sit down together, talk about our day and have a snack together and this hummus is great for that!
By the way, this hummus is more red than red pepper hummus in stores because I used more red peppers than normal for flavor and to make it a little lighter. I do not like tahini so I do not use it in my hummus. I use olive oil instead.

I like the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser products for cleaning up our kitchen. They will wipe off anything that I need them to. They are especially great for fingerprints on the fridge, freezer and microwave. It really is like magic! Another product that I like is the Cascade Complete ActionPacs which wash our dishes so well without streaks or food residue left on our dishes. You can skip pre-rinsing your dishes with this product which is awesome!
Troy has a dishwasher in his classroom since he is a science teacher and has to wash a bunch of science lab equipment there. These Cascade Complete ActionPacs are perfect for cleaning the equipment thoroughly. He also washes his lunch dishes there which these work well on.
I used to wash more dishes by hand but since having Adalyn, I prefer to wash whatever we can in the dishwasher to save time. My food processor that I used for this recipe got thrown right in the dishwasher and it came out perfectly clean!
