FIVE EASY HUMMUS HACKS & RECIPES TO CUT CALORIES & FAT
Hummus is an easy satisfying snack filled with a combination of fibre, protein and healthy fat to keep you fuller longer, but don’t assume it’s only good for dipping! Hummus can be substituted for butter, oil, cheese and more in a wide range of your family’s favourite recipes, resulting in some serious cuts to calories and fat. I like using Sabra hummus for cooking because it has a short simple ingredient list, has a smooth consistency that holds up well to the heat, and comes in a wide range of amazing flavours to make recipes even simpler.
