We are all aware that Hummus is a healthy snack but there are many more health benefits. Below is a breakdown of the top health benefits of yummy hummus... and this is without the vegetables!
FULL Of FIBRE
Hummus is high in fibre, so it is great for your digestive system and beats having to eat bland and boring alternatives such as bran flakes to get you on track. Fibre also has the added benefit of helping prevent heart disease.
HIGH IN PROTEIN
Hummus contains a high amount of protein, which is essential for building healthy bones, muscles and skin. This is a great source of protein for vegetarians.
Made from Garbanzo beans, chickpeas have natural nutrients that can help lower cholesterol.
NATURAL WEIGHT AID
Monounsaturated fats are good fats that the body needs, so it is no wonder Hummus is seen as a natural way to help lose fat as it is traditionally made from Tahini (a sesame seed paste), a good fat that for once doesn't result in belly fat!
Hummus is made from Tahini and Chickpeas, both of which contain calcium, needed for stronger bones, nails and teeth. So for those whose diet is low on calcium, Hummus can be seen as a great alternative.
CRAVING UNHEALTHY FOODS, HUMMUS IS A GREAT SUBSTITUTE
Hummus is not just for dipping, add it to meat, fish, veggie or pasta dishes, or as a sauce or spread, or even thinned out for a salad dressing. The possibilities are endless; substitute many everyday unhealthy options for the healthier and more beneficial Hummus option.
ALLERGIC TO NUTS, DAIRY AND GLUTEN?
No need to study the label, our Hummus is free from nuts, dairy and gluten. Just pick up a pot in the knowledge that every mouthful is a beneficial one!
