Hummus is known for it's convenient varietal uses and beneficial nutritional value.. This condiment can help with meal preps, lunch sides or snacks, for all ages. It's high fiber content keeps your digestion intact, aiding in constipation or assisting with weight loss.

It is packed with protein, for all my vegans that want a light way to improve bones and muscle health. The high fiber and protein content are especially beneficial for pregnant women, which is what jump-started my hummus eating habit.

One of my favorite things about being pregnant was that the physical self-care that I practiced became so regular that it helped me carry on a natural eating diet even after pregnancy. That not only healed my physical domain but my families as well. Having to continue this way of eating for my son to grow with enough vitamins and nutrients, permeated holistic living into my life even more.

I have it with carrots, corn tortilla chips, on the side of my salad, and on this day I had it with my vegan spinach pizza. My son being a fellow flavor lover, loves it with his carrots. In fact, it gets him to eat all his carrots even the ones from my hand when mama wants to try!
