Fresh hummus is always best because you know just where it was processed, in your own factory, your kitchen.  When you get the munchies, lose the processed carbs.  Instead, reach for fresh veggies and a couple of gluten free crackers to satisfy your craving nature's way. If preparing is what makes dieting difficult, then buy the pre-made hummus.


1 can chick peas
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp salt
3 tbsp pepper
Handful fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 fresh lemon

In a food processor or blender, add all of the a puce ingredients and purée.  (Don't add the lemon rind, just squeeze in the juice of half a lemon.

When the consistency is creamy, spoon into a bowl or on a plate.

Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on top, add a pinch of pepper for color and a sprig of cilantro for garnishing.

Slice your favorite veggies (in moderation), here I sliced one mini cucumber, added a few grape tomatoes and a few gluten free crackers and dip until your heart is content, literally!

Tip:  My recommendation is to use as much organically grown foods as possible.
