Hummus: The New Sandwich Condiment

You can eat sandwich condiments occasionally and remain healthy. But many have high fat and sugar, according to Food Network. If you want a lean condiment with more protein, try hummus. They will add healthy nut fats and a bit more flavor.

Registered dietitian Amanda A. Kostro Miller recommends buying a hummus with low sodium and high fiber. For healthy fats, find one that was made with olive oil or avocado oil. Since hummus comes in a variety of flavors, you will have many spices to choose from for your sandwich.
