Having published two best-selling cookbooks (Cravings and Cravings: Hungry for More), Chrissy Teigen is famously a foodie. So it’s a little bit surprising that she apparently can’t stand hummus — the popular Mediterranean spread made of chickpeas, tahini, and other spices. “I am the only one in the world that does not like hummus,” she tweeted in 2009 (via CheatSheet). Her hatred of hummus didn’t end there, either. Insider reports that she went on to call it “the most over-rated snack-category food alive” and “flavorless paste” in later tweets. She got back on her chickpea-bashing soap box in 2013, when she tweeted, “You don’t love hummus you love pita chips you liars!” (via CheatSheet).
Regardless of how Teigen feels about hummus, however, it’s a healthy snack for those looking for something filling and nutritious. According to Healthline, it has a low glycemic index (so it won’t spike blood sugar levels), is high in fiber and plant-based protein, and contains plenty of anti-inflammatory vitamins and minerals.
