A healthy and filling middle eastern dip! Eat it as an appetizer or snack with some pita. Why buy your hummus ready made from the store, when you can make it yourself?

pretzels, puffed corn, and rice chex are low-calorie additions to this snack mix, and unsalted peanuts and sesame sticks give lots of crunch and flavor. This makes a LOT!

It can be made lower sodium by finding unsalted puffed corn (instead of brand-name Cornnuts) but those weren't available to choose. Also, unsalted pretzels and fewer sesame sticks will bring down the sodium count.

Okay, this isn't super low-calorie. But it is easy and delicious in moderation.

p.s. feel free to adjust seasonings to make this hotter...

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.
