What your saying makes sense to me.

I like it but daily seems a little strong as it does have fat in it.

    Id say no. High in fat and high in calories. I LOVE it though.

    I never see houmous ever feature in any of the Tri or running mags' diet sections.

    I love it. Wholegrain pitta, carrots or raw red pepper all served with a big blob of houmous.

    My instinct is that it's very good for you: protein from chick peas, good fat from the olive oil and vitamins (iron even?).

    Anyone know whether it's a good thing to have regularly (daily for me) in an active diet?

    200g chickpeas, drained

    half a lemon, juiced

    1-2 tbps olive or rapeseed oil

    50ml water or liqour from the chickpeas

    pinch of salt

    Blend until desired coarseness of paste is achieved
