Hummus contains both proteins and carbs. It is also easy to make at home and enjoy with raw vegetables or as a spread.
It makes a tasty snack and it encourages your family to dip with veggies like carrots and cucumber sticks.
You can easily create hummus variations with paprika, garlic, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.
Hummus also makes a great lunch box snack and kids seem to love the taste and the fun of dipping.
