Healthy Snacks: Hummus and Carrots

Do you find yourself struggling to stay with a healthy eating plan?

Maybe you feel like healthy snacks just don’t compare to cookies and candy?

Well I’m going to let you in on a little secret.

Healthy snacks can be delicious and quick and easy to make!

Did you know that you can really liven up the taste of vegetables with hummus?

My favorite is hummus and carrots. If you prefer other vegetables, then hummus is also delicious with broccoli, peppers, celery, and whatever else, you name it!

Hummus and Carrots

1/4 cup of hummus and 4 carrots is only 100 calories!

I just dig the vegetables in and eat it like a dip.

You can even use hummus as a condiment to replace mayonnaise, mustard, or ketchup.

Hummus is an ancient food made from cooked, mashed chickpeas and blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and garlic. The oldest known recipes that included hummus appeared in Egypt during the 13th century. People have been eating this scrumptious concoction ever since!

Hummus is high in iron and vitamin C and is a good source of dietary fiber and protein!

Having healthy items on hand when you get hungry is half the battle.
