Spinach Hummus

Spinach hummus is part of my daily diet and I love it.   Not only is spinach hummus simply nutritious, it is quick and easy to make and easy to store.  Therefore, giving you something delicious and healthy right at your fingertips for that moment when you are feeling hungry.
Hummus is loaded with plant-based nutrients and contains healthy fats.  The healthy fats come from the sesame seeds which are in the tahini paste and also the olive oil.  It is high in protein and fibre and contains ingredients that are proven to reduce inflammation, controls blood sugar levels and improves digestion.
