I don’t really LIKE packaged
food. When the Food
Should Taste Good
folks contacted me to try their new hummus, I was
skeptical. The cornerstone of my “eating better” philosophy of “stealth health”
is cooking at home. I think making it yourself ensures that you will include
only good for you ingredients. You’re in charge; you get to pick what goes in
your food.

However, after a couple of
back and forth emails, I realized that their hummus could help me out. It’s a
fresh snacking option made from real, clean food and it comes in four unique
and cravable flavors When I get as busy as I have been lately, it’s hard to
take the time to prepare good food and eat, even as a healthy chef. And I’m an
eater. No mealtime goes by without my eager participation. So when I get this
busy, just like you, I look for alternatives to making everything from scratch.
I loved sharing Food Should Taste Good Hummus with Christine at ATL & Co
My biggest challenge is what
to eat when I’m on the road, in between meetings, or just trying to finish up
all the details life throws my way. That’s when I hear the siren call of the
pizza at the big-box store, the pastry at the coffee place, the grab-and-go
sandwiches at the supermarket, or the bar of dark chocolate that I bought
specifically for a new recipe.
I need help and inspiration
– and a little time. I’d never advocate for a product unless I checked out the
ingredients…and the taste. I can tell you that this hummus is not only full
of flavor, but does not have anything in it that I wouldn’t add myself – or
eat. A week ago a big box of the Food
Should Taste Good hummus arrived. I had such fun tasting and creating recipes
with their four new flavors – Black
, made with lime adobo, topped with
tomatillo salsa verde, Chickpea,
made with
za’atar spice and extra virgin olive oil, topped with roasted pine nuts, Chickpea
& Lentil
, made with vindaloo curry, topped with mint chutney, and Edamame,
made with sea salt, topped with pickled ginger and togarashi spice – that I had
to share my new creations!
The unique new flavors of Food
Should Taste Good hummus provided an interesting start for some new light
lunches and snack recipes. Super easy and fast to make, they package up quickly
and travel well in a lunch bag (plus the four hummus flavors come in a
serve-able bowl that’s easy to place in a basket or on a platter for entertaining
guests!). These recipes are for you. And
lately, for me, too! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Pack them up, make
a double recipe, cook once and eat twice or three times!

Smoked Salmon and Food Should Taste Good Chickpea Hummus

Smoked Salmon is a great way of making a sandwich
that is fast, interesting and easy. Instead of a bagel and cream cheese, try

Atlanta & Company yesterday!
