For those who work out in the afternoon or mid-morning, it's best to recharge your batteries with a hearty snack, rather than waiting for lunch or dinner! Here are two ideas to satisfy everyone's tastes, one sweet and one savory to recover energy after a good workout, so you don't reach your next meal absolutely starving.
Whole wheat bread, hummus and lamb's lettuce. Let's start with a savory snack that’s full of every nutrient, balanced and also rich in fiber. Whole wheat bread, a source of complex carbohydrates, combined with the chickpeas used to make the hummus, give you all the protein you need. Finally, the lamb's lettuce adds a touch of color and freshness to the bruschetta.
Don't know how to make hummus? Don't worry, it’s really easy. Simply puree the cooked chickpeas with lemon juice, a pinch of salt, about 1/4 cup of water for every 7 ounces of chickpeas, the amount needed to obtain a thick and velvety consistency, and a drizzle of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil Delicato to enhance everything.
