I've been eating Hummus with Ryvita bread as a general snack and fill me up in those in between moments, but have recently started paying atention to my Fat intake and have decided amongst other things to score Hummus off the menu, at least for now.



I also don't eat any dairy produce, nor much in the way of onions and spices etc..



So, i'm kinda stuck for ideas on what to replace hummus with as my snacking partner with Ryvita bread.



Does anyone have any suggestion of something(s) i can conveniently pick up at a supermarket that will take place?



Many thanks

I like almonds. Very filling, but if you're trying to cut fat, they're not much help. And I like to keep some dried Medjool dates in the freezer. They don't freeze solid, so when you take them out they are cold, sweet and chewy.



Have you tried making your own hummus? I started doing that so I could control the amounts of fat and sodium.

a tofu based dip might be a good idea- http://www.fatfreevegan.com/appetizers/868.shtml



I've also been wanting to try a pureed vegetable dip for a while, I've heard of pureed peas and cumin and lemon juice, sort of like guacamole, but I think I'm going to try this next- http://www.fatfreevegan.com/appetizers/867.shtml

Well, as a snack I always eat apples.



I'm addicted to apples.



You can also use it on top of your ryvita, with cinnamon! It's yummy(or at least I think so).

This is a really, really easy recipe you might like. Even if you're not good at cooking, this is simple (all you need is a blender).



Spinach Hummus



Take 1 10-oz package of frozen spinach and let thaw. Squeeze as much liquid as you can from the spinach and chop it up. Set aside.



Place 1 (19 oz) can of rinsed, drained chickpeas, 1/3 cup lemon juice, 1 tablespoon tahini, 4-6 cloves of garlic, 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon cumin (omit if you like) and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (also omit if you like) in a blender, and blend till smooth (add a little water if necessary -- it will thicken in fridge). Add the spinach and blend briefly.



Nutritional info: per 1/4 cup: 107 cals, 7 g protein, 19 g carbohydrates, 0.5 g sugar, 2 g total fat, 13% calories from fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 6 g fiber, 336 mg sodium.

sheesh - it was easier to ask you!



It would appear that they are some kind of a deep-fried jam sandwich. I did not see a picture. Do you make your own, or do you buy them at the chip shop?

Alright, I'll tell ya the recipe:



Take two slices of bread.

Spread jam on the face of one piece.

Put the two slices together (with jam on the inside)

Eat (Sharing with one's canine companions of course)



I've never tried them fried, and probably never will.

I honestly cannot remember the last snack I had at home that wasn't shared with the dogs!

Jam butties sound terrible.

I hate jams and jellies, especially on bread.

I really think most of the suggestions here are about as calorie-rich as hummus...



If you can't cook, you could start learning. Supermarkets likely won't have much that's lower in fat...



Alternately, could you just use LESS hummus?

^ Cajun popcorn sounds yum! I was just going to suggest popcorn.... homemade of course, but it's really easy and much much healthier.



I pop my corns in a pot with a lid, it takes about 3 minutes which is the same as the microwave stuff. Then I sprinkle with sugar and salt, or with nutrotional yeast and garlic and crushed red pepper, or I eat it plain.



It's good, it's cheap, and it's (relatively) healthy as a snackfood.
