When I was a kid, I loved to watch my grandmother make cookies. And by watch, I mean I would stick my fingers in the bowl to lick the dough every time she had her back turned, much to her dismay. And then, when I became an adult, I thought it would be a good idea to scarf down a whole bowl of raw cookie dough to myself. Not only is it a great way to get seriously sick, it’s not exactly the healthiest snack option.
I eat a lot of hummus. Seriously, a lot. Legumes, like chickpeas, are a fantastic and clean source of protein for fuel, a healthy carb and great source of fibre. Add that to some powerful good-fat-packed sesame seeds and you’ve got a killer combo. Here’s the problem, though. What’s in that store bought hummus? Let’s take a quick sneak peak at some of the most common offenders.
