It’s a fresh, new year and I am so excited to get back into healthy eating and exercise again. Don’t get me wrong, I love cozy, rich, yummy holiday food, but it feels good to get all those vitamins and nutrients back in my body. Here is one of my favorite snacks or light lunches, using a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge!
Health tips: Vegetarian, anti-inflammatory, low fat, heart healthy
My husband absolutely LOVES hummus and now that he knows how big of a batch we can make at half the cost of the store-bought kind, it’s a weekly routine for us! It’s such a wholesome snack and so satisfying, especially when eaten with veggies. My favorite basic hummus recipe comes from www.inspiredtaste.net. Very tasty, so simple to make and very fluffy. My sister-in-law Tammy and I also experimented with other variations using black and white beans. The basics of hummus are so easy that you can definitely make it your own!
