It’s game day party season!  Which can also bring about unhealthy appetizers and a whole lot of diet disasters!  Make Sabra a part of your tailgating menu to sneak in a serving of beans in this Garlicky Greens Dip!  Instead of chips or bread, I served lemon roasted cauliflower on skewers!

Sabra is the official Dips sponsor of the NFL.  Together we are bringing you healthy ways to enjoy game day!  You all know I love beans and all the health benefits that come along with them!  Two heaping spoonfuls of hummus a day will fulfill your bean recommendation for the week! Hummus, which is made with chickpeas provide protein, fiber, iron and B vitamins.  This winning combo can help you maintain a healthy weight, lower your risk of heart disease and control glucose levels.  Not to mention, hummus also contains tahini, which provides healthy monounsaturated fat for sustained energy and improved cardiovascular health.

This dip would also make a great spread on a roasted veggie sandwich or hummus pizza!
