Creamy Hummus Broccoli

I just got cleared by my doctor to start working out again after my c-section. I’m a runner and couldn’t wait to hit the pavement. On my first run out I had all the motivation in the world but my legs felt like dead weight with absolutely no strength in them. The paradox is that running is what helps me lose weight but it’s really hard to run when I’m heavy.

So what I’m trying to say is that I’m trying to eat healthier. It’s so hard with all of the Halloween chocolate around. I definitely still love my sweets but for today I’m going to share a super easy and healthy side dish.

Broccoli is one of the few vegetables that my kids will eat happily. We usually just eat it plain but tossing it in a garlic hummus is a great way to switch things up.

  1. I am going to give this one a try! My kids adore both ingredients so it should be a slam dunk. 🙂

  2. I love this. It’s so simple, it’s genius! I am going to have to buy some hummus now!

  3. I’ve been trying to slim down as well and what’s really helped me is the my fitness pal app. It makes me be accountable for everything that I eat…which is really hard for me because I LOVE food. But I’ve been using it for a good month and I have healthier, conscious eating established now! Good luck!
