Dip Your Veggies into These Guacamole or Hummus Mini-Cups

Some people don’t snack on veggies because it’s not enough to tide them over to the next meal.

Enter Sabra Classic Hummus, which comes in a four-pack of handy 2 oz. cups. Each mini-cup has 150 calories and 260 milligrams of sodium, plus 4 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, and 6 percent of a day’s iron. The rich, flavorful dip is largely made from ground chickpeas blended with tahini (sesame paste), soybean oil, and garlic. Grab a bag of baby carrots and you’re good to go.

Then there’s Wholly Guacamole Minis. Unlike filler-heavy guacamoles, the 100-calorie cups are mostly seasoned mashed avocado. Each (2 oz.) Classic or Spicy mini-cup has 170 mg of sodium (the Avocado Ranch hits 290 mg) and just 1 gram of protein. But the 3 grams of fiber give them (along with hummus) an edge over most other dips or dressings for veggies.

To skip the sodium entirely, see if you can find the company’s Wholly Avocado Minis. Their only ingredient: avocado.

  1. It is so easy to make guacamole or hummus quickly at home, why would you want to throw these containers into our landfill? If we’re going to eat healthier foods, we should also protect our Earth by avoiding individual servings in plastic containers. I’m wondering why Nutrition Action isn’t more Earth Friendly?

    1. I have to agree:) I do love the nature of the convenience factor on many levels, but if you do make at home, there is even less sodium too! Thank you though for lining out some good healthier options for those on the run! In a pinch – yeah.
