Getting Healthy from the Inside Out

Paleo Hummus

This website I found for Paleo recipes is awesome! There’s some great stuff there- but even I was sceptical on how hummus could be made with cauliflower and still taste like hummus!

I was pleasantly suprised! And this makes me happy! “Going Paleo” is simple enough- stick to meat and veggies! That can get pretty boring pretty quick… I should know as that’s pretty much what I do during contest prep! So this website is nice as it gives me variations and options… plus “baked goods” for when I want a treat!

So on to the hummus!
