Hooray for Hummus

I'm sure most of you cringe when you hear the word Hummus, which might be because most of you don't know what Hummus is actually made from and the benefits it has. It may not be the best tasting to some, but for the most part, it has a very distinct flavor and can add a lot of taste to a sandwich.
Hummus is a fantastic source of Iron, Fiber, Protein and Vitamin C. It is made with Chickpease and Garlic which is healthy for the heart. It has very little carbs which of course is good for everyone, especially the diabetics, and has fat intake, but the fat is from Olive Oil, so it's the fats your body needs. I'm not saying go eat a bucket of Hummus. Of course eating anything of too much isn't good for you, but when it comes to choosing a healthy condiment-it is very highly recommended.

Ideas for easy, healthy Hummus use

~Whole Wheat Ham Sandwich:
Tomatoes, Cheese (low-fat), Avocado, Hummus, and Ham

~Egg and Hummus Breakfast:
Whole Wheat with Hummus, Cheese, and scrambled Egg Whites (3)

~Turkey Wrap:
Whole Wheat Tortilla, Hummus, Turkey, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cheese

Hummus is at every party out here, but I never tried the stuff until I moved here among the hippies. They love it, and so do I. Thanks for the recommendations on what to use it on besides pita chips.

So excited for a new post!! I've never tried hummus. Going to have to get me some. I'm always desperate for anything new to try that's healthy.

I thought hummus had something to do with sheep's stomachs. There I go, showing my ignorance again. But seriously, isn't there something similar to hummus that is gross? Am I alone here?

Haggis is a Scottish dish made from a sheep's or calf's heart, liver, and lungs, minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally boiled in the animal's stomach for several hours.

Hummus is completely different, just like our decidedly delectable, dreamy, daring, daunting and driven diabetic dietician told us.

Sincerely,

Captain Nutrition

Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

I like sun dried tomato hummus which I buy at Whole Foods. They have other flavors which are also good.
