I have started putting 2 Tbl. of chia seeds in my smoothies and replaced the skim milk with almond milk. The chia is full of omega 3 and helps to make me feel full & satisfied. The almond milk has less calories and is a great source of calcium, plus it adds a great flavor. Yum!
This hummus is very simple to make. Drain a can of chick peas and add to the processor. Add the juice of half a lemon, one clove of garlic pressed or minced, two tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Whirl the ingredients or pulse a few times until the beans have pureed. The calorie count includes the beans and the two tblsp olive oil. That's it. A low calorie hummus that anyone can whip up. Serve with crudite or crackers.
