Did you know that chickpeas contain a lot of protein and vitamins? Did you know that they are delicious snacks? Yes!
BUT AREN'T THEY BEANS AND DON'T THEY NEED COOKING?
Before I tell you how you can easily "snack" them, let me tell you some of their benefits.
I have already shown you that these little treats are packed with nutrients. But did you know that they may help keep your appetite under control? Yes, these snacks have a great portion of fiber which leads to being satisfied after you eat them, thus you don't need to eat another snack.
Not only do they help curb your appetite, but they are rich in plant protein so they are great for that vegan based protein diet (and everyone else).
Chickpeas have low calorie density, which means they may help you lose weight and are low glycemic index food. Also, these little legumes may help your digestion because of the amount of fiber they contain.
Along with the benefits already named, chickpeas may help prevent certain chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer and diabetes. The nutrients are seriously that amazing!
But how do you easily add these little nuggets of nutrition to your diet in such a way that they taste good, are easy to grab, and you can eat a variety of flavors? There is a company (notice all of the pictures above) who has created a snack that is simply delicious, made from chickpeas. The variety of flavors will surprise you, as will the ease of grabbing a package and being on your way.
The company name is Saffron Road. For only $19 you can grab a pack of 10 on Amazon. Other sizes are available as well. I just like the pack of 10 because I can put them in my pantry and have them on hand to grab and put in my purse. Note: use your savings apps and these may be less.
They have many other flavors to choose from, but the sea salt is my favorite one on Amazon.
On their own website, here is what flavors are shown. DELISH!!
These really are the best chickpea snacks out there. AND they are certified gluten free, non-GMO project verified, certified halal.
I'd say they are a super food...super delicious, super nutritious, super easy!
