Best Low Sodium Hummus

Updated: Apr 24

I'm a pretty "snacky" person. I keep popcorn, peanuts, and applesauce around most of the time. But, when I have a minutes to make hummus from scratch, I load up on veggies or pretzels to eat with it and clean the bowl!

This recipe that's been a favorite of mine for years is super easy to make because it only requires 5 ingredients.

Hummus is naturally an excellent source of fiber and is low in potassium, making it a great snack if you have kidney disease. However, some of the store bought options can be a bit high in sodium and honestly, they're a little thinner than I like. I want a dip, not some runny chikckpea soup, you know?

This low sodium hummus is delicious and loaded with garlic!

This hummus low in sodium and potassium and high in fiber and linoleic acid, which has been linked to decreased inflammation in humans(1). It's also loaded with garlic which also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Your kidneys, as well as your cardiovascular system, will thank you.

I use a food processor, but you can use a blender if you'd like. Once you've dished it up, you can drizzle a bit more olive oil over the top if you'd like and then serve with cucumbers, carrots, celery, or bell pepper strips for a kidney-friendly snack!

I'm Brandy Winfree, RDN.

When I was working in dialysis, I saw so many patients who had no idea that diet plays a HUGE role in kidney health.

I decided then that I needed to pass my knowledge onto people with kidney disease BEFORE they went into kidney failure. Not after.

That's why I became a board Certified Specialist in Renal Nutrition and why I started this blog. 

You deserve to take care of the kidneys that you have now and I want to share my knowledge with you to make that happen.

Are they any topics that you'd like to hear my thoughts on?
