Healthy Hummus – Summer’s BFF

Summer is here, which means grilling out, picnics, and BBQ’s galore! It can be so easy to unintentionally consume too many calories during social events, which usually consist of burgers/dogs, potato/pasta salad, & chips/dip. Fruit salads are always a good choice, but an even better option would be to consume a high fiber snack (veggies) paired with a heart healthy, protein option (hummus). 
Veggies & Hummus should be your healthy summer staples! 
  • Chickpeas are a great source of Protein, Fiber, and Complex Carbohydrates
  • Tahini is rich in Calcium, Phosphorus, Lecithin, Magnesium, Potassium, & Iron
  • Olive Oil is a Heart Healthy Fat
  • Garlic contains a variety of Anti-Oxidants
Hummus doesn’t have to be boring. Read below for some fun new recipe ideas!
