It’s nutty…..

Whole nuts are often more expensive than those in smaller pieces, so if your recipe calls for chopped pecans/walnuts/peanuts, go ahead and buy them that way. You’ll save money and it will be less work for you!

Potato Peels…..

Potato Peel Snacks – When peeling potatoes for mashed potatoes, save the peelings, toss them in a bowl, season with salt, pepper and a little Italian dressing and bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until they are crispy. It makes a quick and healthy snack.

Snack healthier…..

Keep chopped fruit and veggies ready to go in the refrigerator for a quick snack. Looking for something savory? Grab some unsalted nuts. Craving something sweet? Keep some unsweetened, low-fat yogurt on hand. With some planning, you’ll be prepared when hunger strikes.

Love that Peanut Butter…..

Peanut butter is rich in a variety of nutrients — but it’s also rich in calories and fat. While the healthy fats in peanut butter are nutritious, you should consume them in moderation to avoid unwanted weight gain or potential health problems. Commercial peanut butter brands often have added sugars, oils, and fats.

Healthy Hummus Recipes
Find healthy, delicious hummus recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Black Bean Hummus
For a slightly Southwestern spin on hummus, swap in black beans for the traditional chickpeas. It’s just as fiber-rich and filling, but with a taste that pairs well with tortilla chips and crisp bell peppers………..

Sweet Potato Hummus
Roasted sweet potato adds earthy sweetness to hummus and gives it an even creamier, smoother texture. Use pimentón, or Spanish smoked paprika, for a hint of fire-grilled flavor, or use sweet paprika for a more subtle spice……..

Double-Tahini Hummus
You’ll look like an expert with this easy hummus recipe that produces the lightest, silkiest hummus you’ve ever had. Chilling the cooked chickpeas ensures that when they’re blended with the oil and cold tahini the hummus will come out creamy rather than oily. In a pinch, you can use the quick-soak technique (see Step 1), reduce the chilling time and still get great hummus…….
