    Thoughts on Hummus?

    Shop Now
    What's the scoop on traditional, chickpea/garbanzo bean based hummus? My initial thought is it's a no go on primal (except for the occasional indulgence as part of 80/20). But before I bag up all my cans of ground chickpeas I thought I'd double-check.

    Yes? No? Would anyone like a can of ground chickpeas?

    It's not primal but I do eat beans still once in awhile. Maybe every other week or so. i just love them!

    Just don't add sesame (tahini) - too much O6! And add LOTS of garlic - yum!

    (chickpeas give me embarrassing after-effects)
    *ahem!*

    I usually get Baba Ganoush (eggplant) instead.

    I love hummus. We have an amazing donair place the next town over, and I eat a massive greek donair (olives, tomatoes, lamb, feta, cucumber, tzatziki, hummus, etc) completely guilt free. Sure there's a small amount of grain for the wrap, but the overall % of the meal is so small, and the rest is so good, I don't even see it as an 'indulgence'.

    I love beans and have a little. Having too much is its own deterrent, if you know what I mean. It keeps me from having bread. I'm one who does better with some starch.

    But I'm not trying to say its primal. Just that we're all in different places.

    To me, its not hummus without tahini

    Hmm, I've never seen cans of ground chickpeas ...

    Trader Joe's has eggplant hummus that's way lower on carbs than regular hummus.

    Man, if only I had a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods near me. I'll have to look up some recipes for baba ganoush and give that a try - sounds promising!. Anyway, thanks for all your responses - I finally got my pantry all cleaned out and primal looking so yeah!

    I got the ground up chickpeas from my aunt and uncle who got it from an Indian market in Wichita, KS. Now if only jordan almonds were primal... love that candy coating. Thanks again!
