Healthy Snacks: Turn Up the Beet Hummus

May 20, 2015
Hummus that is pink. It's a celebration every time I eat it. There is something truly exciting about it. It is also delicious and nutritious. This beet hummus is full of potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, and folic acid. Thanks to boron, it can boost your libido. Beets also detox the blood and the liver, and will give you low-calorie energy. Dip your favorite veggies, crackers, or chips, and enjoy!
