Nat's low fat Humus Recipe
I'm always hungry by 3:30-4pm.
This happens without fail, every.single.day.
I am trying to teach my little girls healthy eating habits, without being a crazy person....
Humus is so healthy, and I make it low fat by omitting the oil.
I cut up veg and serve it for a snack.
My kids eat it like candy. For realz.
It will only take you 5 minutes.
Then 5 minutes to cut up veg.
2 cans garbanzo beans/chick peas
bunch of torn up basil leaves
1/2 cup tahini (This is sesame paste and can be found in most grocers.)
3 cloves garlic, cut up tiny or else mince it. (I broke my mincer.)
juice of two lemons
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp cumin
course salt / sea salt/ Kosher salt to taste
Put all that stuff in a blender. Blend, blend, blend. You might have to scrape down the sides a few times.
Add about 1/2 cup of water to bring it to a nice consistency. Taste, and add more spice if need be.
Some people add 2 tbs of olive oil, but I don't like "eating" oil I can see, so I don't add it. I find it's no different really- in taste at all.
*Olive oil is healthy in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, so don't fret if you prefer to add it. It's good for your heart in moderate quantities.
I have a "nutrition psychopath" past. I'm way over it. I like my Doritos, thank you. ;)
Gasp! Is my blender always that yucky looking? Ewwwwwwwe-aaaa.
All that deliciousness: fiber, vitamins, minerals, protein, and the added bonus of veg eating.
I'm off to meditate with Terence Yallop now. (Love him!) He's absolutely soothing, and my brain is always on fire so I neeeeeeeed the calming voice of a meditating - British accented - yogi person. LOL
See you ♥
