Mine's hummus and peanut butter. Not sure how healthy the latter is, but it's high in fat. Hummus has some fat too, and it's delicious and you can eat it with almost zero kcal things, like crudites. xx
Who doesn't love peanut butter? It's one of my favorite things, despite the idea that it may not be the healthiest nut butter to have. But I'm trying to be less orthorexic, so I think peanut butter can be part of a healthy lifestyle.
Hummus is awesome. I had bought it a few times ready made from the supermarket and eventually wanted to try making it myself so I could tweak the amount of garlic in it.
I bumped into a hummus recipe from a youtube channel called "Refika's kitchen" (turkish and mediterranean food) and had a look at the chick peas available from my local supermarket.
And then I found out, to my great shock and disappointment, that canned chickpeas (drained) have 14 to 20 grams of net carbs per 100gr depending on the brand of canned chickpeas.
The potatoes I can buy here are 18gr to 19gr of net carbs and are considered a starchy staple food. So that makes chickpeas (and hummus made from chickpeas) a high carb food in my book.
I'm not completely banning it from the menu but I'm reserving chickpea hummus for special occasions.
Then I found another authentic hummus recipe from the same channel and it uses broad beans instead of chick peas. Refika said "this would be even tastier if you can get fresh broad beans". As it turns out I can only get fresh broad beans and not the dried ones. My local supermarket sells fresh broad beans in their freezer section.
They're only 4gr net carbs per 100gr, so significantly less than chickpeas. I already tried the recipe out and it's pretty great. There is a noticeable flavor and texture difference between chick pea hummus and hummus made with fresh broad beans, they're both great in their own ways imo. I boiled the fresh broad beans according to the instructions on the package, then proceeded according to the broad bean hummus recipe.
I recommend trying the recipe even if you're not concerned about carb intake;
