Hummus and Ganush On the Go

sonny-and-joe-ganushYou know what I love? Real food. Not the stuff with ingredients you can’t pronounce or the unnatural flavors or the marketing claims that a food is “really good for you” (despite the fact that it’s packed with sugar). Over the years, I’ve really cleaned up my eats and focused on a flexitarian diet that is high in fruits and veggies. Basically, if it doesn’t have an ingredient list (Mother Nature doesn’t have those, does she?), it’s in my diet. But what about when you’re on the go and an apple just doesn’t cut it? Or if you have kiddos, and you want to give them something quick, easy and tasty (and ants on a log just aren’t cute any more)? Or if you have a serious craving for crackers and dip…like I sometimes do before Aunt Flo turns me into a crazy woman. You Sonny & Joe it up, that’s what you do.

I’d never heard of this brand of hummus and dips until the company sent us some a few months ago, but it’s certainly on our radar now. Made in “mircobatches,” these dips are made of real foods and have a nutritional profile that you can actually pronounce. We tried the brand’s Ganush, an eggplant and lima bean spread that was healthy tasting (definitely eggplant-y and lima-y) yet creamy and filling, along with various flavors of its Duo variety that features hummus with a single serving of multi-grain crackers. A sucker for anything with garlic, I loved the Garlic Addiction flavor. And the Buffalo Hummus? Brilliantly hot-saucy without too much heat.

While I found the calorie-counts on the hummus and Duos to be too high to eat as a regular snack (they’re more of a mini-meal with 190 to 330 calories), they are healthy and they do taste good. While the Ganush wasn’t my favorite taste-wise, it’s certainly more of a weight-loss snack food with just 45 calories a serving.

Overall, if you care about what you put in your body (and we think you should!), it’s worth giving Sonny & Joe’s a go the next time you get hit with a craving for hummus, crackers or dip—and don’t have the time or energy to whip some up yourself! —Jenn

    I will be on the lookout for this!

  2. I love these snacks! I haven’t had one but it sounds delicious. I usually make my own hummus in large batches and keep it in the fridge. If you’re in a budget then this might be a better way to go about it. Also skip the pita bread! You don’t need it and you’ll save the calories.
