Hummus Among Us!

This is so good I can hardly stand it!

My hubby and I absolutely love hummus.  It is by far the easiest thing to make so no excuses!  The beautiful thing about hummus is that you can blend it with whatever dazzles your taste buds but still keep it plant-based and healthy. 

Here’s a little tip! Instead of oil, especially if you are on an oil-free protocol, use the liquid from the chickpeas. It’s call aquafaba and it makes the hummus smooth and creamy. 

Chickpeas are a great source of a soluble fiber called raffinose which assists in the production of a  short chain fatty acids called butyrate.  Butyrate supports the health of our colon which is essential for elimination and preventing colon cancer. 

Putting all of that aside, it’s a healthy, yummy treat that you can pair with veggies or seeded crackers. I love these from Mary’s.
