Hi there. I did SBD many years ago with great success and I'm giving it another shot. I seem to remember being able to have hummus. Am I wrong? I can't seem to find it in the book.

Welcome back. The food list from the newest book is in the FAQ above.

Hummus is fine - just watch the quantity.

Im also a fan of the roasted red pepper hummus. I love it with some red and yellow pepper slices. I tried it with sliced cucumber and didn't like it LOL I guess flavorful veggies are best?

How much do you think is allowed for a serving? I sat down with hummus and a bag of cut up bell peppers last night and probably had too much. Need to portion it out, but what is an allowable portion for hummus?

Hummus is about 30 calories per tablespoon - check the info on the container if it's store-bought. That means about 240 calories per half cup serving.
