Low-Fat Hummus is quite easy to prepare and the low-cost savings is an added bonus to the great flavor. I’ve been looking for snacks that that are healthy when I am tempted to eat cheese and crackers. This is an excellent substitution! Hummus is so versatile, yes, it’s great as a dip but it can do so much more.
Use it as the base of a fresh Mediterranean pizza or stuff crisp celery ribs with it and build from there.
You can really get creative with it depending on your daily caloric intake allowance. You can use baked pita chips, fresh naan or keep it ultra-clean by dipping raw veggies in it. Who doesn’t love crisp carrots dipped into freshly made hummus?
The tahini, which is ground sesame seeds, is a much better source of fat in lieu of olive oil. Beans are one of the most nutritious things you can eat and they always add a welcomed serving of protein. Chickpeas or garbanzo beans depending on what you call them are seriously great for your health. The benefits are endless and there are so many ways you can use them in recipes.
