Spicy Basil Hummus

Hey guys!

Today marks day five of my Conscious Cleanse and I’m sticking to my guns! I’ll be posting a week one recap so stay tuned. viagra england Breakfast was a green smoothie with frozen banana and mango, blueberries, kale, romaine, goji berries, almond milk and water. Delicious.


After I gulped that down I headed to my favorite yoga class at Yoga Bliss in downtown Tuscaloosa. Good music and lavender oil is key to an awesome yoga class, so I’ve learned. (Lavender oil for shavasana, by the way.)

Ok ok. On with the purpose of the post!

Spicy Basil Hummus
