Here's an idea, make a quick snack you can dip some baby carrots in - or any vegetable for that matter. Hummus is made from garbanzo beans (chickpeas), a great source of fiber and protein. Fiber is good for combating high cholesterol and from preventing blood sugar from rising too quickly after a meal. They are also a good source of iron.
When you start giving your body food it can use it will do what it is suppose to do. If you don't have time to make it, try to buy an organic variety. The less chemicals and pesticides we can keep from entering the body, the better.
Hummus Recipe: 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 1/4 cup water 14 oz organic garbanzo beans/chickpeas 1/2 cup tahini 1 tsp. sea salt 2 cloves garlic
Mix all in a blender or food processor until smooth. Serve with organic olive oil if desired.
Tahini is sesame seed paste. You can find it at your local health food store. I use Whole Foods. It can also be found at any Middle Eastern grocery store. Also, don't use the brand of table salt you bought at the store - use sea salt. Table salt is viewed as a toxin to the body, sea salt is not. I'll go into that more later.
