Hummus Three Ways

I live and breathe hummus. Every inhale contains chickpeas and tahini I swear. It is a way of life. I could eat a whole tub of it daily if I could but I’m sure you can see how that can get pretty pricey, so instead I bought an entire bag of chickpeas for $2 and made myself three different tubs of hummus, and here I will share with you this recipe.
You’d be surprised at how delicious something as healthy as chickpeas are, have loads of nutrients such as Vitamin K, B6, Iron, Folate, (and more!) that with every bite you’re doing your body and soul a huge favour. If you’re trying to lose weight or build muscle, first, you should read the 5 Mistakes I Made While Losing Weight and secondly, you must incorporate this hummus into your life because you will NEVER feel like you’re on a “diet” again.  These three recipes are SO quick and easy that filming the whole recipe video for all three including clean up was less than an hour! I have made a quick tutorial on them if you prefer watching a recipe video, but here I have summed them up for you!

Avocado Basil

Avocado is considered a superfood for many reasons. It contains fiber, Vitamin K, C, B6, E. The omega 3 fatty acids it contains help support hair, nails, and skin health, and the carotenoids (which are another fatty acid) help support brain activity and memory!
This delicious fruit helps to support blood lipids, which improve heart health!

You will need:
  • 1/3 Avocado
  • 1 Tbsp Tahini
  • 2 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 Handful of Fresh Basil

Blend these delicious ingredients all together in either a blender or a food processor.

Broccoli Cheddar

Although uncooked broccoli does increase the amount of gasses in your intestine, its fiber is extremely helpful with digestion! It helps support your gut bacteria and stomach lining! It can be insanely helpful with keeping your liver function optimal. 
Would you even guess that broccoli can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease? The Vitamin K in it supports brain and memory function! Broccoli contains loads of nutrients like Vitamin A, Calcium, Iron and SO many more.

Beetroot Cilantro

This stunning and detoxifying root adds a gorgeous pink pigment to the beautifully beige chickpeas. It makes me feel like I’m about to have a feast! And trust me-when I get started on eating this hummus…I am! It aids in lowering blood pressure and enhances the health of our liver. With it’s anti-cancerous characteristics and ability to help fight inflammation in the body it really is one of those foods that we SHOULD NOT go a week without eating!

I was eating tons of hummus long before I went vegan but after I did, it became an absolute STAPLE. Try these out for yourself and I promise you they will become staples for you too. Just remember, if you do 1. Don’t forget to send pics and tag @fruitsforglutesfitness and 2. Don’t die of deliciousness!
