>> okay.

>> we are a meat family. we eat meat.

>> i don't mind meat at all. it was just so marbled so it freaks me out a little bit. light cream cheese but when you buy the whipped because the companies automatically incorporate air, it will drive down the calories and saturated fat.

>> it was beat hummus. super simple, beats, white beans, garlic and salt.

>> here is my favorite.

>> they're very good. i tasted one while i was watching.

>> and this is the beautiful red beat hummus. both of these recipes are on the website. people, it's friday. i'm thinking we're going to make this over the weekend.

>> did they tidy up the fridge before you came or was that the real fridge?
