2. Hummus and fresh veggies
Not only is hummus tasty, but it’s packed with protein, so it’s filling and it can even help you lose weight! It is also low in carbs, which makes it a great snack option if you are on a low carb diet. Making your own hummus is pretty easy. You’ll need a can of drained chickpeas, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, extra virgin olive oil, cumin, and some paprika.
To make it, combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and cumin in a blender or a food processor. Run the blender or food processor on a medium setting until the ingredients create a smooth mixture. Dip fresh low carb veggies, like broccoli or cauliflower, into your homemade hummus and enjoy! If you’re pressed for time, you can purchase pre-made hummus, but make sure you read the nutritional label to find out the carb count.
