Hummus and veggies
Hummus comes from chickpeas, and chickpeas come from the Protein Gods. But it's also gloriously low in calories, and especially filling when paired with veggies like carrots, tomatoes, and celery, which are high in fiber and water content.
But according to our dietitian, if you buy your hummus ready-made, you should also always check for fat content. "Some hummus has a lot of extra oil added in, and oil is something to avoid like the plague if you don't want to gain weight," Gomer says. "I like to recommend a brand called Engine 2 available at Whole Foods, which has no oils added."
Or, here's a delicious 10-minute recipe for hummus you can easily make at home from scratch.
