Celery and Hummis Snack


This fresh treat of celery and hummis is great for a summertime snack, and has 6g of carbs. It takes about 1 minute to prepare and keeps you going until dinner!

While 6g might be high for people in the first 2 weeks of induction, most normal Atkins and low-carb dieters will find this a perfect snack along with their normal meals.

Celery and Hummis Snack

Ingredients:
2-3 stalks celery
2 Tbsp hummis

Simply wash the celery, cut it up into sticks, and dollop out your 2 Tbsp of hummis.

If you want to liven this up you can add in edamame or olives. You can also sprinkle paprika over the top, or cayenne pepper. There are a number of ways to "kick this up a notch" if you wish! On the other hand, many people adore this basic recipe as a quick, easy comfort food.

Note that one of the KEYS to eating happily and healthily is to give yourself good servings, and to then put the rest of the food away. I used to easily eat a half container to (blush) a full container of hummis over an afternoon by keeping it within reach. If I instead dollop out that 2 Tbsp in a cute little ramekin, it is MORE than enough for me and fills me up - without even thinking about having more.

Also note that usually I don't push certain brands, but I have found the Tribes classic hummis seems to have the lowest carb count. If you find something lower then go for it - but be sure to check those carbs! They can vary wildly on hummis brands.
