Hummus and Crudites in a mason jar

Today I am starting a new food series for the blog. I’m not a chef or a food blogger, but I do enjoy finding good recipes and I love admiring well-styled food photography. I’ll be sharing my top favorite recipes and menu ideas for various ingredients, meals and drinks in this new 5 Ways Food Series. I’m starting with one of my favorite afternoon snacks, hummus, which I surprisingly had never tried until this past summer. While I normally pair it with simple pita chips or crudités, hummus is a great, healthy alternative spread or baking sauce.

While there are some great recipes out there for homemade hummus, I usually just pick mine up from the store. I recently received some Skinnygirl Roasted Red Hummus, which is made with non-fat Greek yogurt and is reduced calorie, all-natural, gluten-free and kosher. Oh, and delicious. If hummus is one of your favorite snacks, like mine, you should definitely check out Skinnygirl’s new line of snack foods. They also have dips and salsas! Note: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Skinnygirl. I received a product sample and a promotional item to facilitate my review.
