That’s mainly because my research into nutrition has taught me all about the disgusting practices of the meat industry. I don’t say this to be self-righteous. I say it because I care where my foods comes from. And for me, if a few more animals can live simply by me eating more vegetables, count me in.
If you want to read about more reasons why you should eat less meat, check out the Meatless Monday page. It’s a super cool initiative.
So here’s the deal with this recipe: it’s light, flavorful, and well-balanced. Hummus is good with just about any vegetable … add a little yogurt and vinegar and you’ll forget there’s no meat on this veggie pita. This dish is filling too. Eat it for lunch, and you have yourself a pretty balanced meal (check out the nutrition stats below).
So here ‘ya go …
