Perfect for dipping veggies into, slathering on a wrap, or tossing with warm, cooked pasta, homemade hummus is incredibly versatile. It takes just a few minutes to make and keeps very well in the fridge for several days. You can add all kinds of ingredients to change up the flavors, too. Some of our favorites include: extra garlic, roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, and hot sauce to make buffalo hummus.
Everything about this meal fits perfectly with the Mediterranean Diet! That includes: whole grains (the whole wheat spaghetti), a focus on veggies (peas, in this case), seafood or fish (canned tuna), and extra virgin olive oil (of course)!
This vegan mint chocolate chip smoothie takes only a few minutes to put together, includes spinach or kale, and tastes amazingly close to a dairy-free milkshake. Pair it with some healthy protein, like a side of eggs or cottage cheese, for the perfect breakfast!
This snack is one that my kids often beg me to make. It’s a really fun snack to put together so I normally comply. Plus, I love this snack too, and it’s a great excuse to enjoy some apple nachos myself.
Even better, my eight-year-old is kitchen-confident enough to make this apple nacho recipe herself and frequently does. All three of my kiddos love putting on their own toppings. You see, this is not just a healthy snack: it’s a snack-tivity (like, a snack and an activity combined into one awesome afternoon)!
