A Couple of Lunch Recipes

I like to have high-protein lunches since high-carb lunches make me sleepy!  I am sharing two recipes for hummus and chicken spread.  I usually make these on the weekend and then pack them in small containers in the freezer.  I'll pull a couple out each week to take to school, they're thawed by lunch. You can buy these little containers at a Dollar Tree store, and keep them in a zippy bag in the freezer.  With some whole grain crackers, or vege slices, they are a perfect (and delicious) high protein lunch.

Hummus (I try to buy organic items)
2 cans of chick peas
1/3 bunch of parsley
1 lemon
1 clove of garlic
olive oil to texture
cumin to taste
salt and pepper to taste

Put all of the ingredients into a food processor.  Use olive oil and lemon juice to make a spreadable consistency.

Chicken Spread
2 cooked chicken breasts
1/2 cup of pecans
1/2 cup of olives
1/4 cup of red onion
mayonnaise to consistency

Put all of the ingredients into a food processor.  Use the mayonnaise to make a spreadable consistency.
