The Hummus and Carrot Conundrum

Sunday, June 24, 2012

I've been on a big carrot and hummus kick lately.  I've been trying to replace my old snacks with healthier ones and this is a delicious and addictive combo.  My one problem with them is that my bag of carrots and my container of hummus never run out at the same time.  I initially bought them together but the hummus ran out first. I still had carrots so I went out and bought more hummus, but then the carrots ran out so I had to restock them, then the hummus again.  It has become a vicious cycle with no end in sight.  I'm at the store every other day buying carrots or hummus because I don't want to waste either and they taste too good together to just finish one off on its own.  For now this is fine because I'm still enjoying the constant flow of carrot/hummus snack breaks... but what happens when I get tired of it?  I'll either get stuck munching on some raw carrots or licking the insides of the hummus container just to get them out of my life.  I don't see this ending well.
There goes the last of my carrots...

Other than my melodramatic relationship with snacks, I got my run in today before the rain could get me.  It was only 1.6 miles but it felt a lot better than my past few runs have.  I think it helped that I rested yesterday and also had a new playlist which always makes a difference.
