Amy's Accidental Hummus

Amy's Accidental Hummus

Hummus is one of my all time favorite snacks - it's so creamy and delicious. And because it contains a nice balance of slowly digesting carbohydrates, fats, protein, and fiber - it is also super satisfying and won't send your blood sugar soaring.

I call this my accidental hummus because it was created purely on accident. I went to make one of my go-to southwest hummus recipes* but didn't have some of the required spices so I played around with what I did have. The result turned out to be such a hit with my girls that I thought I would share this kid-approved, healthy snack.

The bonus is that it is ridiculously easy and you can make it in about 5-10 minutes.

One of my absolute favorite things to do with the crockpot is to roast an entire chicken for dinner one evening and then turn the leftovers into an incredibly nourishing bone broth.

Kale Waldorf Salad

Kale Waldorf Salad

The most common complaint with starting to eat kale is that it can have a strong and somewhat bitter taste. If you aren't typically a fan of greens that can deter you from trying it. But that's what makes this recipe so amazing - the sweetness from the apples and raisins combined with a creamy mayonnaise-free dressing truly counters any bitterness. It is absolutely delicious and the perfect seasonal salad to put on your holiday weekend menu!
