Craving something salty or sweet? But striving to up your nutritional game from potato chips or crackers? We’ve got the perfect idea: roasted chickpeas! And, if you feel like you’re constantly finding yourself in the kitchen, maybe finding a couple more filling foods will help? Meals and snacks based on vegetable protein sources such as chickpeas are actually more satiating than meals where the primary protein is meat! Since they’re loaded with fiber, chickpeas – as with other legumes and beans – fill you right up. These crunchy, flavorful chickpeas are a healthier alternative to salty packaged snacks like chips or crackers. Have them as a snack, or serve them as a pre-meal nibble like you would olives or nuts. Feel free to play with the spices. Savory spices might include chili powder, cumin powder or paprika and sweet spices could include cardamom, cinnamon or ginger.
