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.
