I tried this at a delicious restaurant in Fremont called Turko Cafe, rainbow hummus. This I seen a recipe for in a fitness magazine, Strong Fitness, I realized it was fate!: I just had to try making this! Ok after lots of modifications this is it!
makes about 52 2 tbsp servings
20 min prep time even less if you buy the cooked beets from Trader Joe’s . You can slip that step altogether.
3 cups of steamed beets
3 1/2 tsp of lemon juice
1 garlic clove
1 1/2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil melted
1/2 c of tahini
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of cumin (optional)
black pepper and cayenne to taste
Blend all ingredients in a high powers blender and volá!
Enjoy with some sliced cucumber, peppers, asparagus!
What do you need when you are traveling and want to get a workout in for the day?
Towel, spaces, water and the workout of course:
I can help you with the workout part, you have to carve out the time and space. I do my workout earlier, depending on what I'm doing that day? If I'm walking and site seeing then I'm going to do a strength training workout. If I am going to be on the move in a vehicle traveling to another city, then I'll do for that cardio, mostly run. You can see a lot more of the city or town you are in that way and orient yourself. I loving being able to do that. If its hot outside I'll get up earlier to void the excuse of it being to hot outside. Cuba was awesome but the sun was relentless after 8am.
Here's what I did
Warm up with 10 air squats, 10 walkout, 10 cobras and 10 push ups and 1 min plank.
10 plank shoulder taps
10 Single leg romaine deadlift with arm overhead (R &L)
10 BW Spider pushups
12 Arms overhead body weight low squats
12 Face down Cobra Y's or V's (in my case, my shoulders are tight)
10 Single leg Bulgarian Split Squats
30 sec side plank with one leg up
3 sets, then stretch.
I searched for a recipe for these yummy things, since someone had mentioned them and found one listed below and just modified:

What you need:
4 cup of zucchini (I shredded 2 large zucchini and wrapped them in a kitchen towel and let them sit for awhile-this get the access water out)
1/2 and yellow onion diced
3 large eggs
1/4 c of Sheep feta cheese
1 tsp of Himalayan salt
2 tsp of pepper
1/4 of cup of gluten free flour (but you can use amaranth, almond or coconut. You can add more but I'm in season right now so I'm just looking for more veggies)
2 tsp of dried dill or 2 tbsp of fresh
2 garlic cloves (more the better if you like garlic)
olive oil spray (less calories)
Mix ingredients and use a 1/4 of a cup to scoop. Spray over a non stick pan, if you use an iron skillet you'll want to use more oil. Cook for about 4 minutes each over medium high and flipped. The picture may not be as flattering but they taste delicious. Enjoy!
