Here’s a healthy food tip

Here’s a healthy food tip: Tired of your store-bought hummus? Why not make your own, it’s easier than you think? If you don’t have tahini you can substitute with any natural nut butter or try olive oil and ground cumin.

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

Have a recipe that lists butter, sour cream, mayonnaise, heavy cream, or buttermilk as an ingredient? Low-fat Plain Greek yogurt is a great substitute. Not only will you increase the protein content of the food, but you’ll eliminate those unhealthy fat calories.
