Quality Hummus is a Go To Choice for Nutrition
So is hummus healthy? If you make homemade hummus with real ingredients or buy a quality store-bought hummus then yes. Basic hummus recipes contain six healthy ingredients: chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, sea salt and tahini.
Here are the top eight hummus benefits:
- Good Source of Plant-Based Protein
- Fights Illness and Disease
- Decreases Inflammation
- Helps Digestion and Intestinal Health
- High in Vitamins and Minerals
- Supports Bone Health
- Protects Heart Health
- Boosts Your Energy
NOTE: Be cautious and read the ingredients when buying hummus. My market offers a wide variety of hummus. Yet, only two products are made with extra virgin olive oil. I limit my choices to these two products.
