This meal makes me think of warm weather and reminds me how happy I am that summer is just right around the corner. Saturday’s weather forecast is calling for a high of 75 degrees Saturday in Fort Mill. WooHoo! Get out the flip-flops!

I love the bright colors of the lemon and the roasted red pepper hummus.

Speaking of hummus, it’s one of my favorite foods to eat when I’m really focused on loosing weight and dropping a few pounds. Not only is it packed with nutrition, but it’s a great sub for high fat and calorie condiments and dips.

Dip these grilled chunks of lean chicken breast in the roasted red pepper hummus and your taste buds will be as happy as if you’re eating a red pepper cream sauce. It’s delicious.
