Guilt-Free Snacking

Slimming Hummus

By Alya Alyssa Kattan

If you’re in the mood for a little snack, treat yourself to some hummus.  It’s low in fat and calories, eat it without feeling an ounce of guilt! It is an excellent source of protein so it’s perfect as a vegetarian alternative to red meat.  Use it as a spread instead of mayo on your favorite sandwich or dip your favorite vegetables, breads or crackers in it.

So the next time you’re entertaining guests or just sitting around watching TV and want a quick snack, remember humus.  I have included a delicious easy to make recipe from my favorite cooking website-all recipes.  Enjoy!
