Beet Hummus Flatbread with Herb Salad and Preserved Lemon Relish

As a Nutritionist, a common goal among my clients is to increase daily fiber intake. Slowly adding more fiber to your diet supports blood sugar regulation, digestion, and detoxification. How to increase? Eating more whole grains, legumes, and leafy greens is a great place to start.

I’m a huge fan of brand’s like California Lavash that offer Whole Grain Flatbreads made with quality ingredients. Their Whole Grain Naan is the perfect vessel for my fiber rich Beet Hummus Flatbread with Herb Salad and Preserved Lemon Relish. A sprinkle of coriander and olive oil and let the drooling begin. Great as an Appetizer with friends or light Lunch for two.

 California Lavash can be found in the bread aisle at your local grocery store like Safeway, Whole Foods and Sprouts or can be delivered to your door with GoodEggs.
