I have been looking for a good alternative to cream cheese for my bagels so I checked out the fake cream cheeses on the market and frankly didn't care for any of them because of their texture. They taste fake. I always liked hummus though and since there are so many to choose from these days I chose to schmear some garlic flavored hummus on my toasted sesame seed bagel for lunch today. Then later on I wondered if hummus is alkaline or acid. I am all about keeping my body as alkaline as possible because disease can't flourish in an alkaline environment. Well guess what? It's alkaline! Looks like I'll be adding bagels with hummus to my regular diet. Oh, you can dip raw veggies in it too. Yum!
