Most major food guides tell us to substitute meat for alternatives from time to time. Hummus is just one example of a great alternative to meat. Made from chick-peas, hummus is an excellent source of both protein and carbs. Combine with a whole-grain pita for a complete post-workout punch. Ingredients: 1 whole wheat pita bread, halved 1/2 cup hummus 1/3 cup lightly packed shredded lettuce or baby spinach 1/2 cup assorted raw vegetables such as halved cherry tomatoes, shredded carrots, sliced cucumbers or avocados Method: Spread half of the hummus inside each pita half then fill with lettuce and vegetables and serve.
