Hummus (Pizza, Sour Cream & Onion, Buffalo Style) Vegan Recipes For Breast Cancer

Hummus Recipe For Breast CancerBy Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

Each week we share delicious, and sometimes simple recipes of select foods that are good in the prevention of breast cancer. This is a popular dish that originated in the Middle East. Hummus is one of these simple and tasty dip or spreads made from cooked, mashed chickpeas, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. It is is usually eaten with pita or any other flat bread. Sesame seeds can also be added to the spread’s ingredients.

Chickpeas, the key ingredient popularly known as garbanzo beans, are high-protein legumes and they do not contain any cholesterol or saturated fats. They also are known to be effective in preventing build up of cholesterol in the blood vessels.  Tahini is also high in protein and is a great source of calcium. Olive oil is a healthy fat. Garlic and lemon juice, meanwhile, are filled with antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress in the body. They also work to improve immune functions and fight of bacteria and viruses. In general I can say Hummus as a whole contains plenty of Omega 3 fatty acids, which are great for improving intelligence and maintaining a healthy heart. On top of it all, this dish also has iron, vitamin B6, manganese, copper, folic acid, and amino acids. Tryptophan, phenylalanine, and tyrosine are the amino acids found in hummus that can promote good quality sleep and uplift one’s mood.
