Homemade Hummus Recipe with Green Giant Veggie Snacks

I am excited to work with Green Giant on reviewing their new chip varieties: Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chip - Garden Ranch and Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chip - Barbecue! We have been huge fans of the Green Giant chip line for a few months now.

Green Giant: Veggie Snacks

As most of you know I have been on a weightloss journey since September of last year and now that I am pregnant it is even more important that I eat healthy alternative snacks (because goodness knows I don't want to have the blood pressure issues I had with Sweet Pea). That's why I love Green Giant veggie chips. They fit our on the go lifestyle perfectly, but leave me feeling fuller and more satisfied than the alternative with a healthy dose of veggies. You should still eat your, these are in no way a substitute.

As far as snack options goes I feel confident letting my daughter eat them and as you can see she was a HUGE fan of the new Barbecue flavor! Garden Ranch was a personal favorite. I ate it with some hummus to give it that extra nutritional punch. SO GOOD!

  12. these chips sound great and so does the hummus. i love hummus but have never made it from scratch. this doesnt sound too hard

  13. I love hummus and have tried to make it 3 times now, never successfully! I didn't have the tahini though, I guess that must be pretty essential. The great things about hummus are that it is so cheap to make, it's so very healthy, and you can make it in so many ways for so many flavors!
