Homemade Hummus – Sandy K Nutrition

No matter what brand, clean, all organic, packaged hummus I buy, it’s never like mine. The ingredients might even be almost the same as mine and super clean but still, it doesn’t taste like mine.

What I like about making hummus is it’s not an exact science. I add a little of this, add a little of that, to come up with the flavour I’m looking for. And I can tweak it any way I want.

The other thing I like is that hummus is a complete protein. A complete protein means it provides you with all 9 ESSENTIAL amino acids. These are the building blocks for everything and the body cannot make these so you need to eat them!

My husband recently had dental surgery, and was able to get this in him with some soft pita, plus a whole lot of healing bone broth of course!

Folks – this is NOT low carb. If you’re looking for a low carb dip, perhaps look elsewhere. It’s all about balance and eating a variety of food remember; so if you eat low carb, choose this on a carb-up day.
