Healthy High Fat Foods To Eat More Of #4: Hummus

October 14, 2014 1 min read

I never expected hummus to be a high-fat food, as it's usually made from chickpeas--a legume, which should be fairly low in fat, right? Wrong! Turns out that 100 grams of chickpeas contains 6 grams of fat, and hummus usually is made with olive oil. Thankfully, while it may be higher in fat than I had expected, hummus is still EXCELLENT for your health and weight loss! A 100-gram serving of hummus contains:
  • 166 calories
  • 7.6 grams of unsaturated fats
  • 1.4 grams of saturated fat
Hummus is VERY high in fiber--roughly 24% of the total fiber you need to eat in a single day. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="660"] Source: topfoodfacts.com[/caption] Turns out that hummus is one of the best foods to eat more of, for a number of reasons:
  • The protein in hummus can help to curb hunger and prevent cravings.
  • The iron in the hummus can boost your energy levels.
  • The nutrients from the chickpeas can help to control cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
  • The antioxidants from the olive oil can boost your heart health.
  • The folate in hummus MAY reduce your risk of developing cancer in your colon.
It's great that hummus is so delicious, as that makes it easy to add to my diet!
