The salad alternatives are many: here are some tasty but healthy recipes to replace in your diet if you can't eat salad anymore

One of these is surely made up of hummus, a particularly creamy chickpea and tahin sauce from traditional Arab cuisine. Thanks to the high content of proteins, hummus is perfect within a low-calorie diet, also because it has a strong satiating power that ensures that the desire to snack is kept away. This particular cream can be used in many recipes such as, for example, the wrap of Arabic bread with lentils and dried tomatoes.
