Raw Veggies and Hummus

This is super easy. Just chop up raw veggies and dip them in hummus for a delicious and refreshing snack. You can buy hummus at most stores (but don’t forget to read the label to see what’s in it), or you can make your own by following this recipe:


1 can (14 oz.) chick peas, skinned

2 tbsp. tahini

1 tsp. garlic, pressed

3 tbsp. lemon juice

½ tsp. cumin

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Sea salt, to taste

Put the skinned chickpeas in a blender or food processor with the tahini, garlic, lemon juice, and cumin and blend until smooth. Add sea salt to taste. If the mixture seems a little stiff or too dry for your blender to cope with it, then just add a little water. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil.  Makes about 1 cup.

Seeds and Nuts

Seeds and nuts are filled with healthy omega-3 fats. These are the fats most Americans are deficient in, and nuts will help you fill that deficiency. Snack on almonds, walnuts, pecans, macadamia nuts, or pumpkin seeds. A handful is a serving.

Steamed Vegetables

Steam some extra veggies when preparing dinner, spice them up with a little olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt , and snack on those throughout the day.

Tuscan Bean Dish


1 can (15 oz.) white cannellini or navy beans

Extra-virgin olive oil, to taste

Fresh rosemary, to taste

Sea salt, to taste

Open the can of beans and heat them.  Add extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, and some fresh rosemary. You can add sautéed or steamed veggies as well if you wish.
