I’ve been on a bit of a healthy eating kick recently. I figure after all the travel I did in September, it only is fair to give my body a break from all that restaurant food and get back to the basic of clean eating! Especially because it’s Fall and you know what that means… baking. Lots and lots of baking. And sugar. And butter. So I’m giving myself a week, maybe 2, to eat really healthy and clean before the butter and sugar fest begins.
Roasted Chickpeas are one of my favorite quick and easy snacks to make, not to mention a healthy one! It’s basically just a can of chickpeas aka garbanzo beans that are drained, rinsed and dried. Once they are completely dry they get a little drizzle of olive oil and then some seasoning. I’ve made all sorts of roasted chickpeas but my favorite seasoning blend has to be a mixture of salt, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and paprika. Not only do they give the chickpeas and great color but a nice hint of spice when you’re ready to chow down.
