Chickpea salad

Hi guys, hope you have a good day 🙂 Today will be another foodie post 🙂

I have been starting to experiment with chickpeas and if you have followed the blog, you probably already saw my previous post about spicy chickpea snacks. If not, you can see it here.

I love chickpeas and could eat them every day. I am not a big fan of dark bread so I’m trying to be creative with my lunch. My colleagues love to see what I have for lunch, because I have different meals almost every day. Yesterday I had this delicious healthy chickpea salad for lunch and I can promise you that my colleagues really loved it. I love chickpeas, and feta and it’s so easy to make. What else does one need? It couldn’t be more perfect.

  • Cooked Chickpeas
  • Avocado
  • Feta cheese or cottage cheese – I prefer feta, since I love feta,
  • Onion,
  • Cilantro – optional
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lime juice

Spicy Chickpeas

Hi guys, hope you all had a good weekend. I had a fantastic weekend and have been eating very unhealthy last week. So today will be a good start for my sugar-light lifestyle and today I will show you an easy and healthy snack recipe.

Chickpeas are such a great way to easily sneak protein and fiber into your diet. My mom used to make a Tamil spicy dish out of chickpeas, but I can’t make it daily. Snacking on Chickpeas will never be boring for me and I would be able to eat it everyday.

I can’t be on a sugar free diet like my cousin Kavitha, but I’m trying to follow a sugar-light lifestyle. I can handle making main dishes that are free of sugar, but snacks are a different story. I easily gravitate toward something unhealthy when I’m looking for a snack. I have been eating cakes and chocolates every day for the last 6 months, but now I have begun to make healthy and delicious snacks, to avoid cakes and chocolates. It has been working very well and I’m going to experiment more with other healthy snacks too.

In our house, we need snacks when drinking coffee especially on weekends. I always prefer easy recipes that don’t take much time. I’ve been doing a lot of fruit and nut mixes, yogurt and smoothies, but now I’m trying to make spicy snacks to get some variations.

SAMSUNG CSCThese spicy chickpeas are so easy to make and a healthy way to get some protein in your diet. The only thing you have to do is, cook chickpeas and season it with chili powder, garlic powder, cumin powder, pepper and sea salt. I don’t use specific measurements for the seasoning. So I just mix the seasonings and taste until I am satisfied.
