 There are so many ways to enjoy hummus.  So go ahead and dig in to its mouthwatering taste . I’m pretty sure you’ll fall in love. The creaminess of this nutrition-packed goodness in every scoop will entice your taste buds. Try it instead of mayo. You’ll get more protein and fiber for half the calories you would from mayonnaise.

Even better: Serve your hummus with veggies like cucumber slices, carrot spears, and red pepper wedges. You’ll get even more nutrition without adding as many calories as a bread, chip, or cracker.
