Clean Eats: Healthy Hummus Recipe

As I’ve taken my own personal challenge to stick to a 28-day nutrition program, I’ve had some fun playing around with food and been amazed at how many options there are to make CLEAN, healthy, eats!!

Not that I have a ton of belly fat left to lose, however, this is a great recipe to compliment your goals to lose that baby weight!

This is a hummus dip that I made in my favorite staple, my beloved Vitamix, as all the hummus I could find on the shelves, had canola oil in it, which is NOT apart of my 28-day nutrition program.

So here’s what I came up with:

2 – 15 oz cans of Organic Garbonzo Beans (no salt added)

4 tbsp of raw sunflower seeds

1 tbsp of Organic extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 garlic clove (could use more if you love garlic!)

sea salt

1 tsp of paprika

Add entire contents above, in order, although drain 1 can of garbonzo beans before putting into blender or food processor.  Garnish with paprika, herb sprig or fresh garlic and serve with raw or roasted veggies!

** You can get really creative with adding clean ingredients, such as, green onion, chives, cracked pepper, fresh jalopenos, etc.

This was so easy and made a ton to last us a few days and serves well as an appetizer with company.  They’ll never know you hand made it…although, personally, I think deserves bragging rights!
