Snacking is something we often don’t plan for when we think about meal prepping. And snacks are where we involuntarily consume a lot of calories and unnecessary food. I always get hungry mid-day around 3-4pm and I want to grab anything and everything in my line of sight, this could be chips or cookies or candy.
I first had Hummus at a Mediterranean restaurant, Acropolis I think. I found it really creamy and delicious. I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for dips, spreads, chutneys and the like. This was a unique new addition to my list. I then went on to try the local grocery-store version of it and since then, I have had a tub of it in my fridge at all times!
I have had moments where no hummus in my fridge made me panic that everything was not right in the world! *drama queen*
But well it is true. My love affair has been solid with Hummus, I have tried many variants of it like garlic hummus, pepper, pine nut, ‘pizza’, onions, olives, artichoke….
