It's no secret that I love hummus. I eat it often... almost daily.
Actually I love beans in any form & whether I have hummus on hand or not, I almost always eat beans for at least one meal per day. It is a great source of protein.
Want guns? Step up your protein game. (Catalyst can help with that too!)
Lately I've been on a food processor kick & making my own hummus. When I make my own, I can pretty much throw in whatever I happen to have & I can leave out the fat stuff like oils or Tahini (which is really high in fat & almost always in store-bought hummus).
I must save the fat for my tortilla chips that I'm planning to eat with the hummus. Ahem.
Or... carrots are ok too. Note to self.
So a typical recipe is usually something like this:
1 can of beans (kidney, garbanzo, black, white... whatever I have)
1 handful of fresh spinach
1/2 can of artichoke hearts
handful of cherry tomatoes
hot sauce to taste (I like a lot)
jalapeno peppers to taste (I like a lot)
Mix in food processor & serve with chips, veggies or crackers.
It's basically like eating spinach salad, but mashed up in the food processor.
Bryn doesn't like the color of it... but it's brown from mixing red beans + greens in this case. Not quite the same color if you go with garbanzo beans. But if you can get past the color... it tastes great AND it's healthy. Packed full of protein & even some added fiber with the fresh spinach.
Well... it's healthy minus the chips I guess, but this girl's gotta have her chips.
Eat it with carrots or celery if you're trying to cut calories though.
Or... eat it with some wine & you'll no longer care about calories.
Okie dokie then... morning Body Pump class already in the bag. Ready for more craziness to come with Zumba tonight! #werock
