spiked zucchini hummus

1 Comment

Day 3 of the Conscious Cleanse .  I am definitely feeling better today.  The caffeine withdrawal headache is gone, and I am beginning to have more energy. Veggies are very filling and have already reduced some of my cravings. As a way to sneak more vegetables into what I eat, I decided to create a variation on traditional hummus with a kick.  Hummus is a great snack high in fiber and protein, and with raw veggies can really eliminate afternoon hunger.  This will be a great snack for me this week!
