The bateman team from my alma mater, Loyola University New Orleans, has launched a campaign to raise awareness about childhood obesity and healthy lifestyle choices. The campaign is titled "Choose Dis, Not Dat," and is a play on the local dialect which I thought was so clever! Their facebook page is filled with helpful tip and tricks about making good and healthy choices. I know they would love your support - so hop on over and like their page!
Here's their recipe for a healthy and delicious hummus.
The Moore's Family Secret Hummus Recipe
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 (19 oz.) can chickpeas
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
Combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend.
If you need additional liquid, add a bit more yogurt or olive oil.
Chill and serve with your favorite veggies!
