Hummus veggie wrap

Take your meals to the next level with our fabulous Hummus Vegetable Wrap! Perfect for a school lunch, a quick dinner, or an easy weekend snack, these wraps are filled with crunchy carrots, fresh cucumbers, and creamy hummus and are sure to satisfy any food craving. We love how easy and nutritious these are, as the chickpeas present in the hummus provide a great source of fiber, folate, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. Studies have even shown that supplementing your diet with chickpeas can result in lowering overall cholesterol levels due to the smaller amount of polyunsatured fatty acids present in these beans (1). ┬áSo go ahead and enjoy the health benefits (and big flavors!) that hummus offers–it’s a great way to enhance your daily diet and make your food taste delicious!
