Free Sabra Hummus

June 16, 2019

Hummus is a simple mixture that has been used for centuries.  Dozens of regions around the world have a slightly different take on it, but no matter how it comes together, hummus is remarkably good for you.

  1. It can help lower cholesterol.  Chickpeas, the main ingredient in hummus, is one of a group of foods known as “pulses,” which have been shown to lower cholesterol when eaten regularly.
  2. It can help lower blood sugar.  One of the big struggles for diabetics is finding food that is both tasty and good for you.  Because hummus is rich in protein, it’s a good way to fill up on complex carbs to release good energy into your blood system without the sugar spikes.
  3. It’s an anti-inflammatory.  Most of the things found in hummus, such as chickpeas, olive oil, and garlic, have anti-inflammatory properties.
  4. It can reduce your risk of cancer.  Foods that are rich in folate contain substances that are known to fight cancer.
  5. It’s good for your bones.  99% of the calcium you consume goes right to your bones, and the combo of chickpeas and sesame seeds give you lots of bone-strengthening calcium.
