Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas
Let’s face it: Many snacks that claim to be healthy are not as virtuous as they seem.
But now that we know the truth about junk food disguised with a health halo, what can we eat instead? How can we get our snack on without exposing ourselves to processed fats, oils and salt?
Enter crunchy roasted chickpeas.
These delicious nibblies will give you all the crunch and flavour you need to feel like a happy, satisfied snacker.
Want to know why these babies are good for you? Chickpeas are high in beneficial nutrients like iron, folate and the sleep-promoting tryptophan, plus they contain a unique set of antioxidants that protect our cells from damage. Chickpeas also keep our tummies, hearts and blood sugar levels happy.
Even better, you can flavour roasted chickpeas with whatever spices float your boat. We love the savory version below, but if you’re craving something sweet? Try cinnamon and coconut sugar. The sky’s the limit, folks. And you can crunch away without the MSG hangover.
Take that, Pop Chips.

I am so glad there are people that have a lifestyle of Me to We
Meghan you could have called your business too as what you are doing stemmed from your personal issues to your personal healing and learning and now sharing with the world. Thank you for sharing so much, including the Me to We information. I love to be able to pass this information on to others, to the complainers of so much that don’t know there are other options out there.
I will look for more of their products.
It truly is a “whole” way of living your life.
How long do these stay good for?
They should be OK for at least a week in a sealed container. It helps to add a desiccant packet to the container (those little packets that come with supplements and some food items) to draw away any moisture.
