Your question was: Free Foods on Nutrisystem plan?.
Two tablesppons of hummus is a low GI carb. You can have that with any entree that asks you to add a carb like a tortilla or roll...
So I can have a lite laughing cow slice! The nutrition value says 2 = 45 calories, so one would be 22.5 calories. It sounds to good to be a free food!..
Hummus used to count as a fat. Technically, if you get a variety that is more oil than beans and it fits the stat of a fat- about 45cal 5g fat then you should be able to count it as such. I do and it hasn't affected my weight-loss. Most hummus only has 4g of carbs for a 2 tbsp serving and quite a bit of fat, so I really never understood how one would count it as a carb without going way over board in fat. -shrugs-..
Thank you all for your help....and thanks for spelling tabouleh right...I did not know the spelling, but it is one of my favorite foods.
A big thank you also for the list...I realize that it was on the shopping list and I will definetly take advantage of the jello every once and a while...
Mmm, jello. Strawberry banana is heaven in a cup...
I didn't look up the stats....it just appears on the low GI Carb list...

I wasn't sure that was what you meant....
It appears from the ones I looked up that it doesn't fit well in the program anywhere....
1/2 cup is 180 calories, 12 g fat, 17 g carb, and 4 g protein...
