Didn’t seem like much and Broiled Tilapia with Sabra Hummus Parmesan

by Joanne on July 20, 2011

Tuesday, I did a bit of cross training for my morning workout:  chest & arms followed by 40 minutes on the bike. Since I had written down “3 1/2 miles running”, I was determined to get that run in.  It was getting late and there was time pressure so I got on the treadmill and ran a 5K pace.  I worked up a great sweat. My mood was so far elevated, I could touch the moon all day!

What didn’t seem like it was going to be much of a workout left me feeling OH SO GOOD!

Wednesday morning an 8 mile run was on the schedule but it ended with a 10 miler.  I got up, not in the mood for treadmill running even though it was dark and early, and ran the well lit streets along the Parkway.  I fueled up with HammerNutrition Sustained Energy (1/3 bag) mixed with 1 TBS Hammer Gel Montana Huckleberry.  At mile 4 1/4, I had a Hammer Gel Montana Huckleberry packet.  At mile 6, my legs were a little tired but I kept moving, working in a few strides.  Garmin read 8.2 as I got to the back door.  Ted was just getting back from his 3 mile run and thought I had already taken Shane. POOOORRRR Shane! He wanted to go out. I hooked up the pup and off we went for another 2.  AMAZINGLY…my legs and the rest of me felt SUPER for those last two miles.   See what 5 minutes rest can do? Maybe there is something to that run-walk race technique?!!!

Aches and pains along the way:  The medial area of the bottom left foot started aching with an on-and-off pain.  When I got home, I pressed and poked and prodded but it felt ok.  Ghost pain?  The other concern was a pain in my right knee during miles 7 to 8.  That went away when I ran with Shane.  I don’t mind these kinds of pains.  It’s those that stay with you AFTER the run that really bug me.

Broiled Tilapia with Sabra Hummus

This recipe was based on an idea from Sparkpeople.  It’s quick, healthy, and good.  PLUS, I received a VIP Coupon from Foodbuzz for Sabra dips and used it for their creamy classic hummus.



Serves 2

  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 TBS Sabra Hummus
  • 1 1/2 TBS Plain Greek Style yogurt
  • 1/2  TBS lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 TBS chopped dried onions
  • 1/4 tsp celery salt
  • 1 lb fresh Tilapia fillets

Preheat broiler on high.  Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and rub foil with olive oil.

Mix together the cheese, hummus, yogurt, lemon juice, basil, pepper, onions, salt.  Set aside.

Place the fish in the foil and broil for 2 minutes. Flip over, broil for 2 more minutes. Remove from

oven and top each fillet with some of the hummus mixture.  Place back under the broiler for another

2 minutes.  The fish should flake easily with a fork.  *Broil time varies with thickness of the fish.


Fish – can’t beat it for a good meal and good health.

      I just heard about the new flavors of Sabra hummus coming out, and I’m so curious! I’ve just got to try the “buffalo-style” especially… I can’t even imagine it. Hopefully they’ll stock it near me, and soon.

        I’d love to try the buffalo style. SPICY!

          What a lovely fish dish! I don’t think I could get that Sabra hummus though..

            Sabra has more flavor than others I’ve tried. Hope you can find it.

              What a great idea with the hummus! This would probably be great on chicken, too. And we always have some sort of Sabra hummus in the fridge! 🙂

                I bet it would work on chicken. Or even make up some kind of dipping sauce for a spicy, wing style chicken recipe.

                  I wish I liked fish because that dish looks tasty. I am using the run/walk technique right now and for me (a super duper-duper novice & pathetic, slow-as-anything run…err…walker) it has been working really well. Glad all your running went so well – I love it when I exceed my plan AND I feel great afterwards!

                    You’re doing GREAT with your plan. I read your latest post. Good job! Never ever consider yourself slow. Slow is when you don’t get up and do it at all. You’re out there. You’re doing it.
