Diabetic Friendly Snacks for the Big Game


Diabetic Friendly Snacks for the Big Game

The biggest game of the season along with the biggest party too. The game officially starts at 6:30 CST, but what will you be serving and eating during those long hours. So will you be there to watch the commercials, halftime, the game itself or is it just an excuse to chill with friends. Worried about your blood sugar going through the roof and then crashing. Yes, you can still enjoy the party without endangering your health.

Instead of a plain sour cream and onion dip try spinach hummus. Here is the recipe

Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 10 min
Servings: 8
Grade: A

15oz garbanzo beans or chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
1/4 cup tahini
2 Tbsp garlic
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp of chili powder

1. In a food processor, cream beans, garlic, spinach and olive oil.
Add lemon, chili powder salt and blend. If spinach hummus is too thick, add
1 tablespoon water until desired consistency. Hummus should be smooth
and creamy.

2. Spinach hummus can be made up to two days in advance. Store in an
airtight container in the refrigerator. It can be served hot or cold.
Serve with pita bread, pita chips, or fresh veggies.
