Hummus Deconstruct – Video Recipe

hummus

OK,

Today we take traditional hummus and do a little tweaking to make it a whole lot healthier for our purposes while keeping a creamy texture and tangy flavor.

The recipe calls for:

1 – can Garbanzo beans/Chick Peas, drained and rinsed
2 – Tbsp. Olive Oil
6 – Tbsp. Lemon or Lime Juice
2 – Tbsp. Chia Seeds (left to soak in 6 oz. water for 10 min.)

Season with:
Garlic Powder
Mrs. Dash
Cayenne Pepper

By using the chia seeds, we’ve effectively reduced the fat content of the recipe by 26 grams, or basically 240 calories… ALL FROM FAT!!

Plus we’ve added Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s as well as an additional 4 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber in just TWO TABLESPOONS of this stuff!

Try it out and let me know what you think.

Video Recipe – Avocado Tuna Lime Spread

I wasn’t going to post again until tomorrow but I got hungry for something different and decided to break out an old recipe for something super healthy, quick and easy.

Ingredients:

10oz. Albacore White Tuna in water

1 – large avocado, peeled, pitted, and quartered

1 – heaping Tbsp. Greek Yogurt, skim ( I prefer the Fage brand, it’s EXTRA creamy!)

4-5 tsp. lime juice

Season with:

Garlic Powder

Mrs. Dash

Cajun seasoning

I hope you try this, it’s really easy to prepare and makes for a refreshingly light meal that really serves up the protein and healthy fats while being extremely low in carbs.

Eat Fit Forever!
