When I'm looking for a healthy snack, especially one I can easily bring to work, I nearly always turn to hummus. I don't need to tell you all the different things you can do with hummus - you already know. But I do want to convince you that making your own is infinitely better than buying a prepackaged version at the grocery store.
Don't get me wrong - there are some great pre-made hummus' out there. But when you could have a more delicious, healthy, clean version that happens to work out costing you less money to have it why would you go for the other stuff?
Personally my favorite way to use this particular hummus is to dip green veggies in it (cucumber, broccoli, sliced green pepper, and raw green beans are excellent choices). Not only do the flavors pair well, but the red and green colors are quite festive! It makes an excellent addition to any holiday gathering.
The most important part of a great snack is that you can't stop eating it. Don't be fooled by how delicious and addictive this hummus is - I promise it's healthy and you can go to town on it guilt-free!
Now whip up a batch for yourself or for your next holiday party...everyone will love the festive colors and having a health-conscious choice on the table.
