Do you LOVE to snack?
I am sure the answer to that question is a big YES! You snack throughout your day, but are you snacking mindfully? Choosing options that are healing, nutritious and healthy for your body? If the answer is no, or sometimes, then try adding in this super delicious recipe using one of my favorite foods- chickpeas!
Chickpeas are a wholesome, nutritionally dense quality food that can easily be enjoyed as a delicious afternoon snack or a beautiful addition into a lunch or dinner bowl or salad. This crunchy, crispy, roasted chickpea recipe will hit the spot and have you feeling satiated and full.
This powerful food is rich in tryptophan, which boosts our serotonin levels, regulates our blood sugars, is packed with protein, supports digestive health with it's awesome fiber content, and are rich in antioxidants that protect our cells from damage. An incredible ingredient to add into your diet.
Let's talk spices....
Most spices go through an irradiation process which actually damages the nutrient content and kills the medicinal properties of the spice. Not cool right? Spices truly have the most healing, powerful compounds for the body so it's super important we are choosing spices that avoid this process. I used Kurundu Spices which are Organic and Fair Trade from Sri Lanka in this recipe. Choose this brand or opt for a brand that says organic.
Tip: Play around with the spices. You can even try cinnamon, or lime and lemon juice. Add in which ever spices or ingredients you love until you reach the desired flavour! I also find this recipe a bit spicy, so if you don't love spice reduce the amount of cayenne pepper and substitute with a different spice!
Warning: It is super easy to devour this entire recipe in one sitting, try doubling the recipe and storing them for your salad or bowl the next day!
