The first step to getting over your hummus addiction is admitting you are powerless when it comes to making snack choices that don’t involve hummus. You don’t have to be ashamed of your hummus addiction – even supermodel Kate Moss admits that she can’t put the garlicky bean spread down. Even Lady Gaga admits that she is addicted too.
Since hummus is a pretty healthy and versatile snack, we’re actually ok with your hummus addiction.
Our only concern is that your life has become incredibly boring because you stick to the same old flavor day after day.
Because we’re ok with supporting your hummus addiction, we’ve gathered 5 ideas to help you add variety to your boring hummus recipe.
Here they are:
According to a new study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology this week, today’s adults are aging faster than previous generations. 15 years faster, in fact.
Try as we might to hide signs of aging with botox, tanning, and expensive skins creams, or internal systems tell a different story.
When it comes to aging, our bodies display more signs than meets the eye. While facial wrinkling and slowing energy levels are markers that most of us associate with getting older, scientists know that our metabolic system functioning tells more of the story.
Researchers who investigated signs on metabolic aging in across generations concluded that “the more recently born generations are doing worse,” and warn “that the prevalence of metabolic risk factors and the lifelong exposure to them have increased and probably will continue to increase.”
Here are the most shocking findings published by the researchers:
Coconut oil isn’t just a nutritious oil that can help stop sugar cravings and add flavor to homemade popcorn. It’s also good for your hair, skin, and digestion. This infographic from Natural Healthy Concepts outlines the top health and healing benefits of coconut oil:

When it comes to muscle tissue, the ratio of white and red tissue matters. According to a new study conducted by researchers at the Life Sciences Institute at the University of Michigan, white skeletal muscle helps keep blood sugar in check.
So what does this have to do with strength training?
A lot, in fact.
When you walk into any yoga studio in America, you might expect to find holier-than-thou yogis talking about the new organic juice bar down the street or a vain instructor circling the students muttering in Sanskrit while everyone follows along.
More and more, the yoga stereotypes that have been hanging around since the activity was first introduced to America in the 1970′s aren’t true.
Increasing your daily fiber intake is obviously good for your digestive system, but new studies show that fiber can do more for your body than keeping you (ahem!) regular.
According to a new report published in the American Heart Association journal Stroke, increasing your daily fiber intake by just a few grams can lower your risk of suffering from a stroke.
Finally, one school is getting it right when it comes to keeping kids engaged in the classroom. Instead of medicating active kids with Ritalin and chipping away at lunch, recess, and lunch times, Walnut Glen Academy for Excellence in Texas has decided to substitute chairs with stability balls to keep kids engaged in the learning process.
You workout everyday, you eat perfectly according to your meal plans each day (with 8 glasses of water), and you get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. You should be ripped and full of energy, right? So why do you feel overwhelmed and tired most of the time?
Maybe your “healthy” lifestyle changes have backfired.
According to research published in Annals of Internal Medicine, subjects who were put on a low calorie diet regained 1/3 of the weight lost when measured one year later. Subjects on a very low calorie diet regained 1/2 to 1/3 of the weight lost when measured one year later.
Lower calorie intake is also associated with lowering the resting metabolic rate, which means that your body is down regulating to survive at its current weight on fewer calories.
Significantly lowering your calorie intake as a weight loss tactic backfires because the lower your metabolic rate, the less energy you’ll have to expend calories through exercise.
Here are 5 more “healthy” lifestyle changes that backfire, no matter how the modern diet industry tries to tell us.
Have you ever been so hungry that you could rip apart any morsel of food that comes across your path in an angry rampage? We jokingly call the combination of hungry and angry “being hangry”. But being hangry is no laughing matter when it happens to you.
This hangry reaction in your body is actually a medical condition called reactive hypoglycemia. Unlike hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) or hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), reactive hypoglycemia is a low blood sugar reaction that happens in the body in response to excessive insulin release triggered by a high carbohydrate meal within 3 – 4 hours previously.
