The Mom Wardrobe: Luxe Athletileisure

Fashion and fitness unite!

Face it, you are wearing them a majority of the day. Make sure they are cool. And dare I even say it, sexy.

The yoga pant is on track to outpace the jean as daily wear across the country.....and for good reason. From the brand that launched the trend (with a cult following), Lululemon, to all the designer collaborations including Stella McCartney and Mary Katrantzou for Adidas to Mara Hoffman.

Work out gear is fun, comfortable, and can easily transition from the gym to post gym errands or even drinks (no, I'm not kidding here). This luxe gear makes a statement before, during, and after the gym.

Roasted Eggplant Hummus Recipe

 

Saying I make hummus a lot is like saying the pope is catholic. It has been known to happen. And it's got to stay interesting to stay in the rotation. 

Two weeks ago we dabbled with roasted eggplant. Last week it was beet hummus. All delicious. All healthy and filling. All perfect to bring to play dates with kiddos. Wine dates with moms. Or have on hand when friends stop by.

It's creamy, garlicky, earthy, and mellow. You can keep the flavor profile lower key for the little by roasting garlic, rather than using raw. I personally like my hummus on the spicier side, also easy to do by sprinkling some red pepper flakes on top when serving (or add the spice in the food processor after you've done the main batch and whip up a second for pals who like the heat!).

 

Roasted Eggplant Hummus

Makes about 2 cups

 

Ingredients

1 medium eggplant, roasted and peeled

2 cloves garlic (option to roast this as well for a mellow flavor)

2 tbsp tahini

1/4 cup good olive oil

juice 1 lemon (about 2 tsp)

1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and washed

salt and pepper to taste

red pepper flakes

 

Directions

Place all ingredients, except olive oil, in food processor. Blend until smooth, adding olive oil through top until desired consistancy reached. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Serve with olive oil drizzled on top and red pepper flakes if desired.
