What does hummus mean to you?
… dipping deliciousness. Not just a tiny bowl of deliciousness, but a massive one. There’s something about dipping your food into yumminess that never gets old.
Sometimes your usual chickpea hummus feels too heavy to dip endlessly. That’s why I love this version of hummus.
It’s lighter, greener, and even more dip-able.
It even goes beyond dipping. Use this for pasta or glory bowl sauce, or bring that sandwich to the next level.
This recipe is inspired by the raw food certification I recently finished, taught by Joanne from The Healing Cuisine at Stay Wild Natural Health.
What an awesome course! We learned about all the raw food goodness.
Fermentation, nut cheeses, raw crackers, dips, sauces, desserts… OH MY.
Eating your food raw means you’re keeping all of the raw enzymes and vital nutrients live and more easily available. Cooking over 118 degrees degrades the nutrient density of most foods. So, the more raw food you can get into your body, the happier your digestion, your immunity, your hormones, & your whole body will be.
Here’s to high vibrating foods.
~ Zucchini, it’s got potassium for your heart, fibre & water & minimal calories for weight loss, vitamin C for your immune system, and vitamin A for your eyes.
~ Sesame seeds are packed with antioxidant, zinc, and calcium which are great for bone health. The calcium also helps combat migraines and PMS symptoms.
~ Curry powder is great for the prevention of cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Plus it eases pain and inflammation, enhances your immunity, and boosts bone health.
