Picky plates are a great way to use up what you have on hand. 

A little of this, a little of that and all of a sudden you’ve got a great lunch or dinner!

This is a picky plate.

I LOVE PICKY PLATES! And @hannahfindinghealth – I think you left your bento box here so I am using it – thank you! 😘

Last night when I was at the gym I was watching Lisa Bryan on YouTube. If you don’t already follow her here or on YouTube you need to because she has such great ideas. Like this beet hummus.

My goal for 2023 is to eat more veggies, and having them “hide” in things like this hummus and using the beet greens in my morning smoothie, is a great way to do that.

I only added 1/4 cup more aquafaba (the liquid in the canned chickpeas), 5 more cloves of garlic and a healthy pinch of crushed red pepper to offset the sweetness of the beets.

This made 4 cups, 1/4 cup serving is 5 points on my WW plan because I have beans as a zero point food, or if you count calories or macros, each serving is 130 calories, 8 fat, 11 carbs, 3 fiber and 4 protein.

My picky plate comes in at 10 points: 5 for the hummus, 2 for the french onion dip in the middle, 2 for the pita and 1 for the orange because I am diabetic and fruit costs me points.

If you aren’t a fan of beets, try my garlicky creamy hummus.
