Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday to you!

So, I have ANOTHER tahini recipe for you. Tahini Tuesday, anyone? 🙂 Clearly, I’m allllll about the tahini lately. But, first, a quick recap of my morning!

I’ve been digging this breakfast lately, especially on the days that I work out in the morning. I need a little something in my stomach, but I don’t want to be too full either. Listen to this combo: Half of a mashed banana mixed with almond butter (or peanut butter), ground flaxseed, and cinnamon spread on top of a rice cake. Mmm! It’s so good! Then, I mix my iced coffee with chocolate peanut milkSFH and/or collagen for an added protein boost.

After breakfast, I got Quinn and myself ready for the day. Just before we were about to leave the house, I ran upstairs to grab something from our bedroom and saw this ridiculous creature crushing our pillows.

The workout at CrossFit this morning was a total lung smoker. I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath AT ALL, but it was a fun one. I finished just over 12 minutes.

Back at home, I was more than ready for an early lunch. I whipped up a batch of tahini dressing that turned out so well. I’m already dreaming about having it on roasted Brussels sprouts for dinner! 🙂

Homemade Tahini Dressing


  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp honey

Ingredients: Combine ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over your favorite roasted veggies!

My gosh, it’s so darn delicious. I’m pretty sure I’m going to put tahini dressing on just about everything! 🙂

Question of the Day

Anyone else already thinking about dinner? Yes? What’s on the menu?
