Healthy Snack: Hummus with fresh vegetables

Sometimes it can be very difficult to snack healthy. It is all about knowing what to take instead of opening a bag of chips. I will share more healthy snack ideas so help you make good decisions which are mostly organic and non-GMO.

Making hummus is very easy. You just have to put the ingredients in an order in your food processor. Starting with the tahini and lemon juice. Then before adding anything else, turn the processor on and let it run for a minute, then ad the rest of the ingredients to get a nice and smooth hummus.

For the hummus use:
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 2 medium lemons)
2 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for serving
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 (15 oz can) chickpeas <-- When possible, skip canned food products and use dried or frozen products instead. Canned foods and beverages are a known source of the endocrine disruptor, BPA. Scientists believe endocrine disruptors may be at least partially responsible for the rise in obesity, type 2 diabetes, and even the feminization of men.
2 - 3 Tbsp liquid from chickpeas


Paprika, carrots, celery or whatever vegetable you like to have with it for serving
