Hummus and Whole Wheat Pita Bread

This is not a new idea! But it is a fast and healthy idea for a quick lunch or snack.

Hummus and Whole Wheat Pita Bread

We scoop a few flavors of Hummus on our plate and break up whole wheat pita bread or simply tortillas, dip, and eat. Talk about Easy! Our preschooler even enjoys this. He likes to make shapes with the tortillas and then scoop up the hummus himself.

Hummus is made out of Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas.) They are pureed and mixed with oils and other ingredients to make a very healthy and tasty food.
We enjoy the Athenos brand of Hummus. They have several flavors to choose from.

Hummus is a very healthy food. Chickpeas are filled with nutrients like fiber, protein, magnesium, and iron. All of these things can help lower cholesterol and the risk of heart attacks. Iron can energize the body and unlike red meat, chickpeas are low in saturated fats and calories. You can also keep your blood sugar levels balanced by eating Hummus. These are just a few of the great nutrients that you'll find in Hummus. Perhaps the best part is that it tastes Great!
