“Eating clean has made a huge impact on my health, body and career. I feel better than I did when I was a teenager. I can live my life without feeling guilty about eating delicious foods. I’m more aware of how food affects me and I love sharing that knowledge with everyone I know and meet. I love that this bean-free hummus recipe is so nutritious and light and very versatile.”
