Nutbutter Hummus & Treat Yourself Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, friends!! I’m participating in a brand new linkup today and it’s one that’s pretty necessary, if I do say so myself. It’s all about treating yourself to whatever you love and whatever makes you feel great….. within reason, people!!

Head on over to Olive’s blog at Olives ‘n Wine to check out other “Treat Yourself Tuesday” posts. It may inspire you to be a little kinder to yourself!

Over the weekend, I did my fair share of treating myself…..

I bought a couple of cute dresses to take with me to HLS, this weekend!

I treated myself to a mani/pedi and went with black for the first time, ever. I figured it would go with everything and we are getting closer to Fall, so I can totally pull off a darker color, right?

I also was treated by Wild Harvest, one of the HLS sponsors. How nice is that?!?!

Yesterday, was the kickoff of the Conscious Cleanse and even though I love treating myself to healthy foods; I might rather be treating myself to one of these….. They were sold out last time I was at Trader Joe’s, which is probably a good thing considering there is no coffee aloud on the cleanse.

Now, how about treating yourself with this super-de-duper tasty nutbutter hummus? I think pretty much all of us like hummus and I’m pretty positive that we all LOVE nutbutter!! This nutbutter hummus can be made with any favorite nutbutter that your little heart desires. I actually used a homemade pistachio butter, which was absolutely divine!

This dip works perfectly with fresh fruit, baby carrots, graham crackers, cookies, a topping for waffles or pancakes or spooned straight out of the bowl! It’s also surprisingly great with chips too and you don’t even need tahini for this hummus!

Something to think about…..

What is something that you’ve done to treat yourself, recently?

Are you a hummus fan? How about a nutbutter fan, or do I even have to ask?

Are you going to HLS this year?

Have a terrific Tuesday and be sure to treat yourself, even if it’s something as little as a bubble bath!

  1. I love hummus! My best friend is from Cyprus, and her mom always used to make it for us. I never even knew they sold it in stores until I got to high school.

    Also, I love that black nail polish! Gets me excited for fall!

  4. Treating ourselves – even if it’s just a little bit – everyday is such a great way of showing some self-love. Yet I’d have to say I’m still struggling with it if it involves spending a bit more …
    Some ways I’ve treated myself lately included buying a dry brush and using it every morning, going for long walks and picking up some new books from the library.
    Mmh, Hummus. I’m a huge fan and the last time I had it was in the form of a Hummus bake a few days ago. Well, too long ago already … Your recipe sounds great and pistachio butter? It’s about time I buy a Vitamix.

  6. Ohhh, I love this idea for nut butter hummus! It looks fabulous. I bet veggies would be so good dipped in this.
    And so glad you got to treat yourself! You deserve it.
    Definitely seeing dark nail colors everywhere for Fall time now! I’m still not quite ready to break out the darker colors, but it’s getting closer.

  9. Have fun at HLS! I like black polish. I go for it sometimes in winter, though I guess black is seasonless, eh? :)
