Here's a snack idea for you health conscious folks out there: Hummus in a bell pepper. I am a big fan of the hummus, and I'm finding that this light snack really hits the spot. Hummus makes a great dip or condiment. Furthermore, my online research shows that this garbanzo beans spread is good for you! According to ehow.com:
"Hummus is a natural, vegan food that can be a part of virtually any diet. Chickpeas, like most beans, are an excellent source of fiber that digests slowly and keeps blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly, making them ideal for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. Combined with rice or whole grains, they provide a complete protein. Chickpeas also contain molybdenum, a trace mineral that helps the body detoxify sulfites, as well as iron and manganese, which are essential for healthy blood and high energy."
Give this a shot. You won't be disappointed.
