Do you ever accidentally fall into a bag of potato chips? Me too. Especially if I don’t eat breakfast, it might be 2pm before I lift my foggy, ravenous head and fall accidentally into a bag of potato chips. Or sitting on the couch after a loooong day and it’s like my hand has a mind of its own and is in the bag before I can smack it. Logically, the answer is to stop buying potato chips but I love salty crunch. This post takes care of the potato chip accidents AND the grazing urges that I would like to keep healthy (healthier).
ENTER three minute avocado hummus. I had two Hass avocados that needed using and a can of garbanzo beans sitting on the counter. Two garlic cloves, juice of one lemon and two minutes in the food processor later, I had a fabulous healthy snack that made my body do a Happy Hungry Goddess dance! At Whole Foods, I snagged the BOGO Veggie Chips from 365 (NON-GMO Certified too) and I get my salty crunch for 30% less fat and NO GMO’s. Sorted.
Snacking and eating can be challenging whether working from home or in an office where fast food is a temptation. How do you keep it healthy?
- 2 Hass Avocados – Ripe
- 1-2 Garlic Cloves – smashed and minced
- 1 can of garbanzo beans/chickpeas (rinsed)
- juice of 1 lemon
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Scoop the avocado and add to food processor bowl. Add other ingredients to food processor bowl. Pulse until smooth. Eat the whole bowl.
