5. Keep hummus in your fridge at all times, because you should be putting it in and on everything.
Use it as a spread on sandwiches. Use it as a fancy dip at parties. Use it as a not-fancy dip when you’re home alone and need to use up the last of your weird pretzels.
6. Yes, people will remind you of this all the time, but: Make sure to get enough protein.
Nuts, beans, tofu, yogurts, eggs. Ya gotta lock it down.
12. You’ll really want to, but try not to just load up on pasta all the time.
Pasta is both easy to cook at home and find on a menu, but try not to rely on it as an entire food group. Carbs and more carbs don’t make a balanced diet.
