Hope this gives advice on snacks!
Most of us are in dire need of a pick-me-up midday, so it is imperative we know
which snacks are best for maximum energy without the subsequent pitfall.
Remember this simple rule: Mix carbs and protein.
Try some of these carb-protein combos:
· Carrots and hummus
· An apple and cheese (my favorite)
· Fruit and nuts
· Whole-grain* crackers and peanut butter
*Whole grains contain complex carbohydrates that sustain your energy level
longer than simple carbs found in pretzels and candies. Whole grains are also
good sources of Vitamin B, which is believed to relieve stress. (But who has STRESS)?

I will eat all the above, but not sure what hummus taste like. What is hummus???

Damn if I know what Hummus is, funny you should ask. It doesn't sound like something I would eat either. LOL.

Here I googled it.
The most popular food to emerge from the Mediterranean and Middle East regions is Hummus - an exotic blend of pureed chickpeas, lemon, sesame tahini, oil, and spices with added flavors such as roasted garlic, roasted red peppers, scallion and dill.
Hummus (pronounced Hum-es) is traditionally used as a dip with Pita bread, crackers or fresh cut veggies. Many people use hummus as a spread on sandwiches (instead of high cholesterol mayonnaise), as a topping on broiled fish or chicken, on baked potatoes instead of sour cream, or as the main ingredient in a vegetarian sandwich.
Hummus contains no saturated fat, no cholesterol or sugars and is high in protein and fiber. Unlike many foods that are good for you, hummus also tastes great. It is a perfect food for anyone who is concerned about eating well or who is on a low cholesterol diet and doesn't want to sacrifice flavor.
Does that tell us what it is???

Yes it does, and I still won't eat it. Even though you typed half the damn dictionary.(HaHa).
But you can eat it if you want. I like a little flavor, don't you?

I love flavor, and just so you know I didn't type it. Its copy and paste.

I know. The old copy & paste trick, okay. So you're not only cute & sexy, but computer literate too. Your husband is a very lucky man.
