The Pec Chef - Bodybuilders Hummus
This healthy hummus has twice the protein and half the fat of normal hummus, perfect for vegans, vegetarians, and bodybuilders clean bulking. You can whip this up in about 5 minutes WITHOUT cooking and its amazing healthy AND tastes fantastic. It makes an awesome snack, meal, sandwich or vegetable dip. Its got great complex carbs for energy. Its got a good dose of high quality protein and its got lots of anti-oxidants, good fats and fiber to keep your doctor happy too. The biggest dietary mistake most Americans make is not getting enough fiber and this is a tasty way to get it! The garbonzo beans not only provide great complex carbs for slow-burn energy but they have lots of protein and fiber too. Tahini is ground up sesame seeds and this is a great complementary protein source as well as a great source of good fats. The red bell peppers give you a big dose of anti-oxidants.
Although hummus is an ancient food my low fat, high protein version is more appropriate for bodybuilders and those interested in health and fitness. My bodybuilding hummus has about twice the protein and half the fat of traditional hummus:
- Sabra Classic Hummus: 11%protein ,23%carb ,72%fat
- Bodybuilders Hummus: 21% protein, 36%carbs, 42% fat
8 cans garbonzo beans (fiber protein)
1 can tahini (complimentary protein, good fat)
3 red bell peppers (anti-oxidants)
1/2 purple onion
1 cup lemon juice (vitamin C)
3 teaspoons thyme
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 jar horseradish
Making the bodybuilders hummus
The easiest way is if you have a food processor but you don't need one, in fact, if you don't its even better because its a great upper body workout mashing all the stuff together!
Thats all there is to it! If you are clean bulking, you can make sandwiches out of the hummus or just eat it by itself!If you are losing weight, its a great dip for vegetables. Give this bodybuilder hummus a try, its AWESOME!
