Dietitian's Top Pick: Sabra Classic Hummus





This time of year we are often surrounded by an abundance of food.  There are a variety of functions and celebrations to attend.  The best way to avoid overeating at those events is to have a small snack before you go.  By doing this you avoid showing up extremely hungry and, in turn, tend to have more will power to control what you choose to eat. 

Today’s Dietitian’s Top Pick is hummus, which can make a great snack.  Each serving has only 4 grams of carbohydrates, but has 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein.  Use a variety of vegetables, such as carrots, celery, bell pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, and/or cucumbers to dip in the hummus and you have a healthy, low carb, satisfying snack!
