Healthy Spreads


This Super food spread is one of my favorite ways to eat my beets. All the ingredients work perfectly together and make this delicious and satisfying spread that can be eaten as light lunch on peaces of whole wheat bread or as a spread in your chicken wrap. Either way it’s healthy, delicious and satisfying.

Everyone loves hummus for its delicious taste and enormous health benefits. Chickpeas are filled with plant protein and lots of fiber. I eat hummus spread almost everyday. I make a big batch of it and keep in my fridge for up to 5 days.
