Introduction

Negi Edamame Hummus

This is perfect for those of you who love to snack – especially if you’re working from home, it’s so tempting to grab the nearest candy bar or chips. The hubby and I avoid buying candy and junk food, especially as we head into allergy season (do you know processed sugar makes hay fever worse?) and I know myself – if there’s a snack in the house, it’s gone in an hour! Whenever I have snacky cravings, I’m forced to 1) ask myself if I’m snacking because I’m bored and 2) actually work for my snack and make myself something nutritious!
