Healthy Food Tip!

Healthy food tip: Tired of store-bought hummus?  Make your own, it’s easier than you think! Don't worry If you don’t have tahini.  Substitute it with any natural nut butter or try olive oil and ground cumin.

Make it the traditional way with chickpeas, or use black beans, edamame, or cannellini beans. Toss in some olives, roasted peppers, beets, marinated artichokes, and some dill pickles to add some flavor.  Are you the spicy type? Add your favorite hot sauce!

Fun fact: Hesitant about a recipe that lists butter, sour cream, mayonnaise, heavy cream, or buttermilk as an ingredient?  Use low-fat plain greek yogurt instead!  Not only will you increase the protein content of the food, but you’ll eliminate those unhealthy fat calories. Enjoy!
