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.

What our readers say...

"FREEDOM FROM THE MENTAL OBSESSION OF TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT. [What I liked most about The Don’t Go Hungry Diet is] that it’s not about deprivation! It makes sense from a biological / organic evolutionary sense. Hopefully I will experience the freedom from the mental obsession that “trying” to lose weight is. It focuses on having to tune-in & listen to your body – it’s not marketing something unnatural like processed “diet foods”. Genuine. I didn’t feel I was being given the big “sell” so to speak, more the passing on of “wisdom”. Your warmth and energy is evident. Thank you. "
