A healthy snack that you’ll look forward to eating

Black Bean Hummus Bruschetta
Susie Jimenez |

We have to find many different ways to eat protein and fiber while still making it fun between meals. Midday snacks can be boring at times, but this is something you will happily stock your refrigerator with, and it will give you a boost of energy.

Dunk fresh veggies, your favorite crackers or even chicken into it.

You can substitute the black beans with your favorite legume or vegetable.

Have fun making it yours.
