Sabra Hummus Is The Best

In recent years I stopped buying not only processed food (usually found in the middle aisles of the supermarket) but many pre-made (and packaged) foods. Usually I make my own yogurt, soups, breakfast cereal and bars and microwave popcorn. I have learned to make cakes and pie crust from stratch too. What's more, Kombucha and gourmet olives (I add vinegar, garlic, bay leaves, hot pepper flakes and spices to a Mason jar with cans of black olives that I often buy 3 cans for $5 at the supermarket) are the latest food items I make and flavor myself. That way you and I control the salt, sugar and quality of ingredients. We also pay less, but get more!

Nonethess, the one food item I continue to buy already made is hummus. My favorite is the Sabra Supremely Spicy Hummus -- too hot for some palates. No worries there are other less spicy choices also.

How do I decide between homemade and already-made? When I can't make something cheaper or better than the manufacturer, I buy it. Sesame seed paste is an expenisve ingredient in hummus. I can't find it for less. By comparison ready-made hummus, at $5 for 17 ounces, is cheap! Time is money. Buying it also gets me out of the kitchen.

On the other hand, gourmet olives and Kombucha are expensive; while cans of black olives, as well as, black and green tea (used to make kombucha) are cheap and the steps are few!

What ready made food(s) do you like to buy?

  1. Dearest Debbie,
    Checked out its sodium content and with 5% that is not too bad. My most important thing to check for, due to my CKD stage 3. Hummus is a very healthy thing to eat!

    1. Good to know. Thanks for doing that bit of research regarding the sodium content. I would guess you are an excellent cook, Mariette! It never hurts to know one's way around the kitchen for the independence and health benefits!
