Superfood Tip: Try using hummus instead of cheese dip

Hummus is a creamy spread typically made from a white bean — traditionally, garbanzo, but Great Northern beans will also work — lemon juice, garlic, yogurt or tahini, cumin powder, water and a little salt and olive oil. It is loaded with fiber, protein, complex carbohydrates and B vitamins. It is also one of the only plant sources for iron.

The only fat it contains is from the olive oil, which is a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

Hummus is great as a vegetable or bread dip or as a condiment on a sandwich. Using hummus instead of other dips or condiments will save you a lot of unhealthy saturated fat and offer a many essential nutrients.
