This Pineapple Hummus Dip is refreshing for not only your palate but your blood pressure. It has about 1/10 the sodium of many store-bought hummuses.
This Curry Hummus Dip makes a fabulous spread for pitas and sandwiches. And what a difference for your waistline and blood pressure! A schmear has about one-seventh the calories of butter or mayo – and about 20 times less sodium than most store-bought hummus.
This dip is excellent with vegetable sticks, such as carrots, celery, and jicama, or with low-sodium, baked chips. And it’s much kinder to your waistline than many store-bought creamy dips, which tally up a belt-busting 300-plus calories for a half-cup serving. Our dip is just 45 calories.

Here’s something semi-Pritikin for guests at your party who crave “creamy” but don’t need to go as low (in terms of both health and flavor) as Velveeta.
