Old Dogs, New Goals, & Green Hummus NOT Made from Avocado!

I am still trying to catch up from my vacation and have lots more to share but I've been itching to post some foodie posts, too!

And share this sweet snapshot of Suzie sleeping last night.  She's lost some weight but still eating and playing like her usual self.
 She's 14 and for the last 5 years have had different things she's visited the vet for.  We will continue to keep an eye one her and each time we visit the vet for her nails to be done they will weigh her, too.

Paco is plugging along, and we will be visiting the vet again soon for more blood tests to see if his platelets continue to climb.

Earlier this week I was hungry for hummus but I wanted to change it up a bit so I came up with this one.  I really don't have a name for this hummus yet but here is what's in it...
 1 Can of Organic Chickpeas
1/4 C Tahini
1 tea Garlic Powder
1 T Lime Juice
1 T Bragg's Liquid Aminos
1 tea GoL's Perfect Food Engerizer
Water to consistency

On top I sprinkled some Raw Vegan Parmesan Chipotle Flavor that I got over at The Raw Food World.

A sneak peak of something that I will start doing and blogging about on a weekly basis starting Monday.  I'm combining the Vision Boards and Inspiration Boards that I have blogged about doing before into a Goal Book.  I haven't decided whether or not I will be doing 3 Goals each week or 5 goals each week.  Regardless it should be great for getting my rear in gear and start setting some goals and mini goals for myself and having some sort of accountability for them.  I will apply a bit of Mixed Media and Junk Journaling or Art Journaling into this project a bit but I intend to take photos of my Goal Page each week and post it on my blog here for all to see.  Comments and feedback welcome and encouraged because it will encourage me to stick to the goals!

The inside cover to the Goal Book isn't all that involved but I think each individual page will have a theme of its own or a completely different look and feel to it each week.

I think this will help me get back into crafting, too.  I need to use up some of my supplies that have just been sitting there for months and months.

Also...I hope this helps with my Time Management a bit.  I've been slacking in a number of areas.  Perhaps this will help!

This project will be positive and fit in nicely with my blog here at My Blissful Journey, too!  What do you think!?

Healthy Vegan Fridays

    1. Thanks! It was different but good and different was what I was looking for in this hummus :)

  2. Old dogs can be tough, you know what we're going through with Skipper currently and his vet is on vacation until next week. The poor guy seems to be getting slower and sleeps more now, something changed in him after that scare last week.

    Anyway, the hummus looks awesome! And very cool on the vision boards.

    1. I saw this comment on Friday morning but it finally showed up on the blog - not sure what happened there - sorry for the delay in responding. I've been thinking of your furkids often! I'll be checking in to your blog shortly, too! HUGS!

  3. I love the idea of a goal book! Especially one so beautiful =) You did such a great job on it - you are so incredibly talented Jennifer. Looking forward to seeing how this goes for you =)

    1. Thanks so much! I hope to post my first one this morning :) Thanks for the encouragements!

  4. Hi Jennifer,
    You really inspire me! I look forward to following your Goal Book project! Thank you so much for sharing this healthy and delicious Green Hummus recipe at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Blog Hop! I can't wait to make it.

    1. Thanks! I have a few more ideas up my sleeve soon, too! I might wait until next week to blog about them. Maybe even make it a GOAL.

      I liked the color of the hummus - I LOVE Avocado Hummus but this reminded me of the color but without Avocado!
