Sour Cream Tzatziki

Coconut White Mocha Oats

- Just under a cup of coffee
- A heaping tablespoon of coconut milk
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 T white chocolate PB
- Sprinkle of Maple Flakes

Breakfast was oats and coffee. Lunch was homemade chicken noodle soup, an orange, a small handful of crispy minis and a little piece of carrot cake. I put some ketchup in my soup, and stirred it up. It gives it a nice tomato flavour that is SO good in homemade chicken soup - trust me!! People think that it is weird!

Dinner was a falafel pita with cucumbers, tomatoes, cheese, falafel, and homemade tzatziki sauce:

The hubby asked me to pick up some tzatziki sauce on my way home from work. I decided to whip some up from scratch instead, as I had all the ingredients on hand.

Sour Cream Tzatziki Sauce

- Approx 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1/2 English cucumber grated, and liquid squeezed out
- 1 T dill
- 1 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 1 T lemon juice
- Some sea salt to taste

This sauce was SO good!! I am glad I tried making one on my one instead of buying it. It was cheaper, healthier, and tastier - perfect!

What is your favourite sauce/ condiment?
Do you use any excessively or with foods that people wouldn't normally expect the sauce/ condiment to go with?

I am all around a condiment girl. I could eat spicy mayo until I physically couldn't move anymore but I practice self restraint on that one. I'm also a huge hummus lover.

I also use ranch and hot sauce on everything, I get some strange looks sometimes.

I've made that sauce before and it IS good...but I'm also lazy so I buy a bucket of it for cheap instead and toss it on salads/etc cause it's so low fat and calories! One time I made indian food and used the greek yogurt + smoked paprika + lemon juice+ olive oil and it was sooo good with zee chicken!

I use ketchup to an extreme! Everyone I know gets grossed out by it!

I have not had a falafel in ages. That looks so good. I also MUST try the white chocolate PB. As for sauces/condiments, I am a freak and buy them like nobody's business. I probably use salsas the most. Love salsa on salads, on veggie burgers, for wraps.

I love tzatziki, it's been too long since I've had any.

I used to be a hot sauce addict, but lately I'm kind of over it.
