Snack of the Week: The Revised Hummus Wrap

I have a few new weird obsessions when it comes to snacks and meals. I’ve been taking old recipes and turning them into low cal/ low carb snacks- plus these snacks take almost little to no cooking effort so they are perfect for people who either need to make something healthy quickly or if you are living in a place where you don’t have access to a stove or oven.

This snack of the week is the hummus wrap, minus the breaded wrap.

All you need is hummus, deli meat and baby carrot sticks.

I prefer the rotisserie chicken from Delifresh, but I have used turkey slices too. And my favorite hummus to use is the roasted garlic hummus but any of the different hummus flavors and brands can be substituted.

First you will take your carrot stick and wrap it in a slice of deli meat, as if you were wrapping a sandwich with a wrap. Then all you have to do is dip your wrap in the hummus and your finished. Easy and delicious. Plus it fills you right up.

The carrot sticks- if you buy the 16 oz bag- are 35 calories per 3 oz, which would mean if you ate the whole bag you would be eating around 175 calories and no fat.

The hummus is per 2 table spoons and it is 70 calories with 6 grams of fat. Keep in mind hummus has the kind of fat that many people consider good. Most of the fat comes from the olive oil and tahini in the hummus.

The rotisserie seasoned chicken breast has 50 calories and 1 gram of fat per 6 slices.

Vegetables, protein and “good” fat are supposed to be in your every day diet, which is why I have found this snack, or meal, to be a perfect mix for me.

Hope you enjoy!
