Beans make for a great snack. Just a few of the benefits: they are low in calories and fat - they curb cravings - increase your energy - satisfy your appetite - prevent the enzyme alpha-amylase from turning carbs into sugar - block absorption of 2/3 carb calories - boost weight loss up to 230% - are a great plant protein with slow digesting soluble fiber - and are very inexpensive!
For a tasty dip/spread to snack on anytime you've got the munchies here you go - this is more of a "method" or "format" than a recipe because you can change it and make it into really any flavor you're in the mood for. For example: I'll make plain hummus the first day and then I'll switch it up by adding roasted eggplant or roasted red peppers or black olives or sundried tomatoes or roasted garlic (personally, I don't like adding raw garlic because it overpowers the whole thing) or fresh herbs . . . the flavor list is endless!
