Most people, even those with the 'windiest tummies' can tolerate a small amount of legumes. We recommend starting with a teaspoon of hummus if you are unsure and gradually increasing the amount to establish your threshold level. Dried legumes should be soaked for at least 18 hours to remove most of their poorly absorbed sugars which are responsible for producing gas. Don't forget to discard the soaking water and use fresh water for cooking.
These delicious Bliss Balls contain the perfect combination of protein and carbohydrates for a great post-work-out snack. You can even swap the nuts for more seeds to make them a school-friendly lunchbox snack.
