Hummus is a great low glycemic and nourishing snack to tide you over until your next meal but store bought varieties are often full of preservatives and chemicals to increase shelf life. Preservatives and chemicals you don’t want in your body.
Make your own at home and ensure that only the finest, healthiest ingredients make it to your stomach. Use organic chickpeas from preferably a BPA free can (the lining of most cans unless specified are made of BPA which is a plastic which has been linked to some cancers) as well as organic tahini if possible.
Serve the hummus with your favourite above ground veg cut up in batons, such as zucchini, cucumber, capsicum/bell peppers, carrots or tomatoes.
Can keep in the fridge for up to three days.
Follow The Directions
