Egg Salad with Hummus Nutrition Info:

Egg: Eggs are a high quality protein source and contain all the essential acids humans need (making it a complete protein). Eggs often have a bad reputation for cholesterol content which has been long debated. In moderation eggs are a nutrient dense, affordable, healthful protein option.

Hummus: Many people don’t know that hummus comes from chickpeas! Chickpeas are also a plant based protein and complex carbohydrate that has a lot to offer. It’s a great anti-inflammatory dip or ingredient to add to snacks and recipes. Hummus is also generally an allergy friendly option.
