Today, as an ode to hummus and as a celebration of National Hummus Day, I’ve partnered with Sabra Hummus to bring you my fave unofficial meal (and why I love it so much!).
One of the biggest complaints I hear from people trying to follow a healthier lifestyle is their constant struggle with snacking.
They snack too much…
They snack on the wrong things…
They snack at the wrong times…
They snack so much and that they can’t stop…
Snacking can be a big problem if you’re trying to get on top of the food you’re eating and you’re wanting to feel in control.
So, what’s my best advice?
(Stay with me here)
My best advice is to actually PLAN to eat more — build in actual meals and even schedule them. Heck – use a phone alarm to set multiple alarms throughout the day to say, “Go eat!” I used to and found it very helpful to stay on track.
The more wholesome, healthy, and nutritious food you can plan on eating during the day, the less you’ll snack on useless, unhealthy junk.
That’s why my fave unofficial meal is simple and fresh hummus and veggies.
Wait — so I get to dip delicious, crisp veggies into a creamy, super flavorful, high protein, and satisfying hummus? Okay!
And when I’m in a rush and don’t have the time or ingredients to make my own homemade hummus, I grab Sabra Hummus since it’s delicious, has tons of great flavors, and is ready to eat straight from the fridge.
Plus – if you have meal prep containers, I highly recommend prepping your veggies ahead of time – choose fresh vegetables that will last for days in the fridge once cut, like carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, and snap peas. You’ll be so glad you did.
Then, when you’re ready for your quick meal, grab the prepped veggies and your Sabra Hummus and enjoy!
Seriously – eating better doesn’t have to be boring or bland. So grab yourself some Sabra Hummus and a bunch of fresh veggies and you’ve got yourself a good thing going for an afternoon or pre-dinner meal.
Happy National Hummus Day!
