Hummus and fetta provide your body with protein which is needed to maintain your lean muscle mass and helps you to feel fuller for longer. Hummus is also a good source of folate which is needed to make and repair DNA. Also, manganese which is needed to metabolize protein, carbohydrate and fat and may also play a role in forming bones.

Fetta is a great source of calcium which is needed for normal muscle contractions and to keep your bones and teeth strong. Fetta is also a good source of the fat-soluble vitamins A and D which help to keep your immune system working at an optimal level. Vitamin D is also needed for your body to absorb calcium. The fat in the hummus and fetta will allow your body to absorb these fat-soluble vitamins properly.

Corn Thins slices add the perfect crunch to this recipe as well as gut loving fiber. Corn Thins slices are a source of the food for the good bacteria in your gut called prebiotic fiber. The vegetables offer another good source of food called polyphenols which your good bacteria feed off.

If you do not feed these good bacteria what they need, less healthy varieties replace them which can cause you illness and disease.
