Hummus February 2007

With the weather being so hot and sticky in Sydney at the moment I find it hard to get into the mood for cooking. Nonetheless, I know that if my husband and I don't prepare something nutritious then we're likely to resort to quick-fix stodgy foods with little nutritional value.

So here's my favourite 'fast food' for summer, packed with loads of Famine-Busting nutrients. Team it with a fresh salad and crusty bread for a light meal, or pack it into containers and take some bread or crackers with you for a wholesome snack on the run.

For dozens more delicious recipes based on whole foods, please refer to my book The Don't Go Hungry Diet.

Makes 1 cup
Preparation time 10 minutes
NOTE: can be stored in refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 days

What the experts say...

"Dear Amanda, Rose and I wanted to thank you for the 2 lectures we had with you for our Weight Loss Practitioner’s Diploma by the Medical Register of Australia at Westmead Hospital.  The lady we had for tonight's class was great...but we want YOU back!  Your lectures truly changed the way we think about the whole subject of weight loss, metabolism, diet, etc - and how clever our bodies are at prompting us through all those things to keep us alive. Hope you're having a fabulous week doing the great work you do, and are loving changing lives one at a time! Hope we can keep in contact."
