Nothing says fresh like mint, right? I had some leftover mint from my Watermelon and Mint Lemonade and came up with this salad. I have a feeling it’s going to become my summer staple when I don’t have a lot of time or brainpower to come up with a meal, because it’s so fresh and light, while also filling me up.
You’re getting a big serving of greens from the salad, plus a healthy amount of fibre and protein from the chickpeas and peas. On top of all that, the fresh mint adds a lot of flavour. Yum! (more…)
Tacos are awesome because you basically just dump in a bunch of delicious toppings, then pick it up and DEVOUR it! But depending on what fillings you choose, your taco may not be the healthiest… However, if the shell of your taco is a leaf of lettuce, you know you are headed in the right direction. Then all you have to do is fill it with toppings that make both your taste buds and your body happy, like these roasted chickpeas!
Roasted chickpeas are awesome because you can eat them alone as a delicious and satisfying snack, or you can add them to many different meals (like this pizza, salad, pasta or wraps) as a way to add flavour, texture, fiber and protein!
