What a great way to enjoy a bean free hummus, easy to digest and just as authentic tasting as a chickpea hummus. Preparing your own home-cooked meals is one of the best thing you could do for you and your loved ones. In terms of value and nutrition, you save money to eat at home. Processed and packaged meals cost more than fresh, plus packaged foods usually contain additives and other artificial ingredients, to enhance shelf life of the meals. They are some packaged meals that appear less expensive, but usually they are not as nutritious and the packaging may actually be of more value than the content itself. They are also usually contain fillers, excess sodium, trans-fat and refined foods. You can save on cost by buying foods in bulk. You get to control each ingredient in the meal you prepare. One of my highlight of making home-cooked meals is when my children get involved in the preparation. I enjoy that I’m passing on the skill of preparing healthy meals, I know that this will stay with them even after I’m long gone.
