As you probably know by now, Mediterranean food/cuisine is potentially my favorite –  not only do I enjoy the robust flavors and freshness of the food, but also (and more importantly) I love how it makes me feel.  Always satisfied, never bloated.  To that end, one of my favorite foods is hummus – I can load up on it and the carbohydrates can easily get away from me!  Don’t get me wrong – there’s NOTHING wrong with carbohydrates, but when you’re trying to aggressively monitor your food intake to achieve certain physique goals, your enthusiasm for certain foods can sabotage those efforts.

That’s why I love this lower carb Cauliflower Hummus recipe.  It’s equally filling and delicious but with significantly less carbs.  To keep it lower carb, I enjoy it with fresh vegetables instead of pita bread, as well as my 3-ingredient flatbread!  I customize it a bit by adding some za’atar, mixed herb & spice blend.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
