Horseradish Hummus

in All Posts

Stopping in for a quick hello!


I love me some horseradish.  And I love some hummus.  So obviously, Horseradish Hummus is a winner in my book.


This was a weird combo though – hummus with corn salsa on top of corn tortillas.   Lots of competing flavors.  Kind of light but I’ll snack later.


Oh, many people have asked about the stick-on nail polish I tried out on Sunday.  I likey!  It’s starting to peel, but I did scrub the tub last night, and I’m not sure what nail polish would stand up to that.  It was easy to apply and fun to wear. 


Also – I’m going to cycle later.  And I want you all to hold me accountable.  Maybe if I publically promise that I’ll ride later, I’ll actually do it.  My tri is on Sunday and I haven’t ridden once in weeks.  I know one ride won’t make a difference, but I can’t go into the race completely cold.


So please, hold me to it!

    LOOOOVE the horseradish hummus – it’s supa tasty!

    And try Shellac for an indestructible mani – almost every nail salon in CLT does it! There’s one on the south side near me that is running a $20 special for it. 🙂

    Did you go for a ride yet? 😉

    My favorite TJ’s hummus is the sundried tomato/basil. Mmm!

    • Liz July 13, 2011, 1:46 pm

      I LOVE the tomato/basil one. My fav by far!!!

  • Julia @ Do more feel Good July 13, 2011, 1:38 pm

    Go ride your bike! You’ll feel much better afterwards and you’re going to do great this Sunday!

  • Mary July 13, 2011, 1:40 pm

    Goooooo ride your bike!!

  • Leanne (Bride to Mrs,) July 13, 2011, 1:41 pm

    Cycle!!!! You can do it 😉

  • Jen @ Light Enough to Travel July 13, 2011, 1:41 pm

    The logo on the horseradish hummus is hilarious! I love it.

    Now go ride your bike! 🙂

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen July 13, 2011, 1:41 pm

    You can do it! Blog accountability always works for me 🙂

  • Presley (run pretty) July 13, 2011, 1:47 pm

    I love horseradish… I wish we had a Trader Joe’s! And I’m pretty sure I need zebra nails now, definitely jealous.

  • Lisa July 13, 2011, 1:54 pm

    Yes a ride today may not kick you into armstrong shape (which im sure you already are!), but most importantly it will boost your confidence for the race! I love your neat, organized plates. Just curious, do you post everything you eat? I guess I am the only one with no portion control! That plate is dainty and I would probably go back for more. I need to get to trader joes STAT! love your blog, and I will try to visit you more direectly to give you traffic;) I have followed you with my reader for a while now!

    • CaitlinHTP July 13, 2011, 2:00 pm

      Hi Lisa 🙂

      If I post breakfast, lunch, and dinner in one day, then yes, I posted everything I ate. Sometimes I don’t post lunch or dinner but it’s pretty obvious I skipped a meal + snacks. Like yesterday.

      I tend to make lunch my smallest meal because I love to have a big mid-afternoon snack, or a snack right before and after I work out in the afternoons. So I guess it’s important to look at the whole day, not just one meal, when you’re talking about portion control.

  • Chloe (In Fine Feather) July 13, 2011, 1:56 pm

    Horseradish hummus sounds delicious, and since I love all TJ’s hummus I’m sure this one is no different 🙂 I just did the stick on nails too and love them! THey are definitely fun!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg July 13, 2011, 1:56 pm

    Go ride your bike!!!

    I just love the horse/radish picture on the container. How cute!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 13, 2011, 1:57 pm

    Ooh I like the nail polish!! Have a great time on that cycle that you ARE going to do! 🙂

  • Yin July 13, 2011, 1:58 pm

    I’ve always been a bit hesitant to get the horseradish hummus since I always get the chipotle one.

    Go go go!

  • Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me July 13, 2011, 2:01 pm

    ahhh I can’t stand horseradish…it leaves a chalky taste in my mouth with terrible spiciness. Yucky! lol. To each their own! Glad you enjoyed it!

  • Sonia (the Mexigarian) July 13, 2011, 2:03 pm

    Mmmmmm hummus… Looking forward to reading how your ride goes. How many miles you planning to do?

  • katie July 13, 2011, 2:04 pm

    DO IT or we will judge you

  • Jamie July 13, 2011, 2:07 pm

    After WEEKS (maybe decades..or it seemed) of rationalizing the investment and trying to find a affordable bike that fits my shorty-pants 5’2″ body…I bought my first road bike yesterday…thanks so much for your tips on buying. Got me a sweeeeeet honey of a bike (I named her George) on Ebay for less than half retail (used, but owned by a bike-shop owners wife who just happened to live 40 miles from me.)

    Perfection! Thanks again! Now…get out there and RIDE! : )

  • Hillary July 13, 2011, 2:07 pm

    Best. Hummus. Ever.

    That is all!

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday July 13, 2011, 2:10 pm

    I’ll have to try adding horseradish next time I make hummus!

  • Jaclyn @therealhealthwife July 13, 2011, 2:10 pm

    I live in Newton, NC and my husband and I drive down to Charlotte each week to Trader Joes and this is the perfect hummus for us, I don’t know how we have been missing it! Thanks for sharing!

  • Rebecca @ How the Cookie's Crumble July 13, 2011, 2:14 pm

    I love TJ’s Horseradish Hummus! But they only sell it on the east coast for some reason. 🙁

  • Elizabeth @ reads recipes runs July 13, 2011, 2:18 pm

    CUTE nails!! I got the pink sparkly ones this weekend and I am LOVING them <3

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs) July 13, 2011, 2:20 pm

    I don’t like horseradish (I don’t know if something is wrong with me or what, but I’ve never tolerated it very well), but maybe it isn’t bad in hummus? Oh, who am I kidding? But I’m sure my horseradish-loving boyfriend will eventually pick one of these up, and I’ll get to try it.

  • Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life July 13, 2011, 2:24 pm

    Your nails look like sooo much fun! I have friends who love the stick-on nail polish because it looks clean and not messy like if I do it myself!

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 13, 2011, 2:25 pm

    Horseradish hummus sounds interesting! I’m not a horseradish fan, so I don’t kow how I feel about that, but I love weird hummus flavors!

  • LizW July 13, 2011, 2:31 pm

    DO IT!! 🙂

  • Bridget July 13, 2011, 2:34 pm

    Just a quick spin on your bike will make the riding portion of your triathlon less intimidating. You don’t want the tri to be your first outdoor ride after a long break.

    This weekend is my first ever triathlon! A sprint, reading all your tri training and race posts has given me a lot of confidence that finishing it is an achievable goal.

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) July 13, 2011, 2:44 pm

    That is one funny combo! I make off combo’s all the time – just eating what ya feel like 🙂 I love the press on’s! I put mine on Friday and they still look decent. That’s good for me, I’m hard on my hands. The zebra print makes it less noticeable too 😉

  • Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) July 13, 2011, 2:55 pm

    OOOOOOOOH ! I haven’t seen that hummus there yet. I was just day dreaming about making some hummus (was thinking roasted red pepper), but may have to grab some horseradish at the market instead of the roasted peppers.

  • Erica July 13, 2011, 3:06 pm

    This sounds so good – I lvoe horseradish and put it on almost anything, and well hummus is a food group so it sounds like the perfect combination!

  • Jill July 13, 2011, 3:38 pm

    Ok- I am holding you to it! How far did you ride????? 🙂

  • Kristen (inspiredbydooce) July 13, 2011, 3:51 pm

    yum! i might mix horseradish with the hummus i already have…

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 13, 2011, 3:51 pm

    Did ya ride???! How far? 🙂 Go YOU!

  • Sue @ Sue In Training July 13, 2011, 3:52 pm

    Horseradish hummus? Sounds weird, so I’d probably like it. 😉
    And now, get on your bike and RIDE!! Woohoo!!

  • July 13, 2011, 3:55 pm

    Can’t wait to hear about your ride today : )

  • kalli@fitandfortysomething July 13, 2011, 4:10 pm

    do the ride girl……i rode 30 miles this morning and it makes you feel so good. it will be a great confidence booster for your race. love the new hummus! TJ’S?

  • Christine @ BookishlyB July 13, 2011, 4:23 pm

    If you don’t cycle I’m going to stop reading your blog. Just kidding 🙂

  • Yolie @ Practising Wellness July 13, 2011, 4:29 pm

    Go ride your bike missy! You’ll feel so much better afterwards! Just imagine those exercise induced endorphins and happy hormones coursing through your body, lol! 🙂 xyx
    PS: Yummy lunch…as always!

  • kristin July 13, 2011, 4:48 pm

    I love the horseradish hummus- it stinks the nearest trader joes is like 70 miles from me and I always try to load up on goods while I’m up there visiting my family or something but I wish there was one closer! I just got these rice and adzuki (its spelled wrong but close) bean chips while I was there last time and they’re SO good. They’re gluten free you should try them if they sell them by u!

  • karin (allpointswhole) July 13, 2011, 5:12 pm

    Horseradish and hummus = two of my favorite things!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing July 13, 2011, 5:18 pm

    It sounds good in theory but I’m not a fan of either..
    And I think even ONE bike ride will make you feel a lot more comfortable in your race!

  • katie @ KatieDid July 13, 2011, 5:23 pm

    I can only stomach those corn tortillas if they are warmed up. They seems so dry and rubbery when they are cold lol. But good substitute for GF eating nonetheless.

  • Katie @ peacebeme July 13, 2011, 5:41 pm

    I love horseradish to, and hummus! Cycle for me! :), because I can’t anymore due to a disorder that affects my nerves

    • Katie @ peacebeme July 13, 2011, 5:41 pm

      Sorry for all of my typos! I also use a dictation program so that my arms don’t hurt on the computer and it doesn’t always get everything right!

  • The Healthy Engineer July 13, 2011, 6:28 pm

    I think the best dare would be to force someone to eat horseradish because I can barely stand it!!

    A tiny bit of wasabi make me cry

  • Molly @ RDexposed July 13, 2011, 6:46 pm

    You can never go wrong with hummus!

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga July 13, 2011, 8:08 pm

    I freakin’ LOVE horseradish. God, I could eat it with a spoon. And clearly my sinuses are wide open then too..haha 🙂

  • Jenn July 13, 2011, 8:16 pm

    I saw that hummus at TJ’s today but went with the Chipotle flavor instead. I have yet to try it but it sounds yummy =) as does this one!

  • Jolene ( July 13, 2011, 11:50 pm

    I love horseradish so much, but we don’t have that hummus in my grocery stores 🙁

  • Mandy July 14, 2011, 9:43 am

    Ah I was just saying yesterday that I could eat horseradish on just about ANYTHING. love it.
