Day 328 of 365 - Front Squat

Front Squat - 5 x BW, 45, 65, 75lbs
Axle Deadlift - 5 x 85, 105, 125lbs

Last workout of deload week. Back to the hard stuff on Thursday. Yoga tomorrow morning.

Making hummus was a total failure. It turns out what I imagined making it involves, and what it actually involves are very different. The big misses were:

1. The macro nutrient ratios of my preferred hummus make it something that does not fit well into the higher protein diet I try to eat. I opted to combine the ingredients in a way that was higher protein and lower fat. Fat makes hummus creamy.

2. Most hummus recipes call for use of a food processor or blender to make it smooth. I hate loud noises, so I opted to use a fork. Some of them suggest peeling the skins of the beans. No way I am spending my time popping bean skins.

My goal was to figure out a hummus recipe that would become a staple part of my diet. Instead I have a tub of stiff, chunky lemon flavored bean mash. It is gross. There are more rewarding things to focus my time and energy on, so I give up on making hummus.
