Paleo “Hummus”

The weather outside is killing me right now. 

It’s so nice and sunny and just…not cold. I have the strongest urge to go out and ride me bike for hours. 

Unfortunately, an annoying thing called homework is keeping me at bay 😦 

But, in the spirit of warmer days, I’ve got a light and refreshing “hummus” dip for you, featuring garden-dried basil, lemon juice, and sunflower seeds.
