  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  •  1 tsp salt

 

Method


  1. Process all the ingredients together in a food processor.
  2.  Serve with raw vegetable crudités or crackers of your choice.

Nutrition tips: Is it ok to snack during the day?

Your body will cope better if you eat three square meals a day as opposed to constantly grazing. When you opt for nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will not feel the need to snack. However, if you are struggling to balance your blood sugar levels between meals, you can opt for a healthy, high-protein snack such as this courgette hummus and crudités. If you are concerned about your energy dips, I would advise to discuss this with a nutritional therapist to identify the underlying cause. A personalised nutritional plan can help balance your blood sugar levels and boost your energy.
