Spinach Pea Hummus Wrap & Brussels Sprouts for Lunch!

Daily Tidbit: I've been eating Dried Apricots for years, in salads and for snacks, and in cooking for savory dishes, but I think today was the first time I ever ate a fresh Apricot!  I had it for dessert and it was perfect:  sweet, juicy, chewy and just the right size.  I also enjoyed a really yummy Peach with Pecans and Ricotta for a snack, so I had stone fruits aplenty today!

If their yumminess isn't enough to convince you, here are "5 Healthy Reasons to Eat Stone Fruit": 


Oatmeal with Cinnamon & Walnuts

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Cinnamon & Walnuts
1/2 cup of Plain Oatmeal, cooked in microwave with Fat Free Milk
2-3 shakes Plain Cinnamon
2 tbsp Walnuts
5 oz Orange Juice
Regular Coffee, black

Spinach Pea Hummus Wrap & Brussels Sprouts

Lunch: Spinach Pea Hummus Wrap & Brussels Sprouts
1 Medium Whole Wheat Wrap, stuffed with:
1/4 cup of Spinach Pea Hummus (recipe below)
1 Roasted Red Pepper
10 Brussels Sprouts, on the side, leftover from last night
Regular Coffee, black

I thought about putting some Cheese on this wrap, but thought I'd try it without first and it was delicious!  The Roasted Red Pepper added a nice zip and sweetness to the Spinach Hummus, both which complemented the chewy nuttiness of the Wrap - I loved it - and no Cheese was needed! 

Awesome Snack:  Peaches, Pecans & Ricotta!

1 Peach, sliced, topped with:
1 tbsp Plain chopped Pecans
1 tbsp Part Skim Ricotta Cheese

This was the first time I tried this combo and it was delicious and filling!  I have to remember this one for the future!
