Dive in and get the lowdown. Which is best — fresh or frozen veggies? Would you find it surprising to know that the bagged produce found behind the frozen doors is just as nutritious as the fresh varieties?

    Eating Too Much Hummus Can Be Dangerous. Here’s Why You Should Eat It Anyway

    Fox News correspondent Cortney Moore recently cautioned against consuming too much hummus, citing an Eat This Not That article that interviewed several nutritionists and dietitians. Moore claimed that overdoing it with this dip could lead to gastrointestinal issues, arguing that because hummus is made from chickpeas—a legume that takes awhile to break down—eating hummus could cause gastrointestinal inflammation for some individuals. More commonly known as IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome, an inflamed gastrointestinal tract can manifest as severe bloating, gas, stomach pain, diarrhea, and/or constipation.  “Beware” the chickpea While IBS is a serious issue that an estimated 10 to 15
