Snacks! I love snacks.

And after almost 9 months, I think I can officially announce I have kicked my chip addiction!!! Not only do I never crave chips any more, I don’t want them even if they’re right in front of me. It took a long time, but I got there! My Other Half and I don’t even buy chips anymore (except tortilla chips for dips, guacamole etc.).

I find us turning towards healthier snacks and yes, I know microwave popcorn isn’t great) more often now, like making fresh guac. Yum!

Something I definitely don’t make or eat enough of is hummus. I love it! Especially with veggies or homemade pita chips. My favourite is definitely my Pea & Avocado Hummus (which actually doesn’t contain any chickpeas) but this one is really fantastic too (and is also inspired by a Nigella recipe).

Hummus (specifically this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus) couldn’t be easier to make. And it’s just so beautifully colourful, isn’t it?

By the way, I use roasted red peppers from a jar for this, but I am sure roasting your own would work too.
