Broccoli sprouts and my saturday morning

Last night when I came home from work I wanted something quick and easy because I was very tired. I enjoyed a very nice whole wheat pita sandwich with hummus, broccoli sprouts, onions, cucumber and tomato an idea thanks to the author of Archive site:
I went out looking for broccoli sprouts after reading her post on Feb. 10, 2008. She showed a very nice picture of a wonderful lunch she had of broccoli sprouts with hummus and onions on pita bread. It is very tasty and easy to make. I realized you can mix and match any way you like. I served it with some veggie chips an idea also from the author of the latter site as she had her sandwich with corn chips. I also had another idea of adding roasted red peppers on this sandwich. I had thought about it before to add some kind of sprout to the peppers and the broccoli sprout seemed like a good idea. My nan one day made me a roasted red pepper sandwich when she wanted to make me lunch. She did not know what to make since I became vegan and Italian Grandmas love to show love with food. She roasted red peppers, added some spices and some oil.. It was a very nice sandwich.. Thanks to my nan and the author of “my life as a vegan” I have two new ways of enjoying a healthy, yummy sandwich... I did also see a combination pack of different sprouts in the produce section. So if you do not find the broccoli sprouts try what kind is at the market.
I like to treat myself with pancakes on a Saturday or Sunday. So this morning I made some tasty pancakes and after that I enjoyed A self treatment of reiki. Reiki is a Japanese form of “healing” using energy from one person to another or your own energy as I did this morning. I started learning about it some years ago and life happens so it took a few years before I was able to take a class and become reiki level one. I sat there doing the reiki to some very nice relaxing music and I feel a serene calmness right now. I have recently started to do reiki again and my goal is to continue and eventually advance to the next level.
I hope you try the broccoli sprouts. I also had them on a salad the other day... And for lunch today I did have the roasted red pepper sandwich. I took a whole wheat pita pocket bread, opened it up (leaving one end attached to flip back over), spread some hummus on one side (you can do both if you like), put a nice size roasted red pepper from a jar on one side of the pita (over the hummus), broccoli sprouts, and chopped onions.. Yum..

Thank you for coming to my blog. I hope to see you again soon.

The roasted peppers seem like a great addition to the sandwich, next time I have some on hand I will definitely try it! Thanks for the idea!

Hi Gemma

I love a hummus pita sandwich too- I usually chop up red, green & yellow peppers, carrots & kalamata olives, but I love the idea of roasted red peppers!

I have been doing reiki every morning & every evening like clockwork since I the class because it is so amazing. Am looking forward to hearing more about your reiki. Am taking reiki 2 in a few weeks and cannot wait!

Reiki is truly a wonderful experience. I went to a reiki circle about two weeks ago where you could give or receive reiki. I received because I wanted to see what the group was about and it was wonderful. I think I feel comfortable enough to give the reiki next time. I want to practice some more before I do reiki two.. Good luck when you do the next level and I do look forward to reading about it..
I like the fact that with a hummus sandwich there is so much variety. Thanks to my nan I have tried the roasted red peppers on it.. Your combo also sounds good. Yeah for hummus!!! Thank you for reading my blog :)

Sometimes a sandwich can be just delish, especially with the right 'fixins' Yours sounds great!
