With the last week of classes starting and exam time around the corner, I felt this post was perfect! I have 3 big dogs at home and can never find a quite time to study, so I spend a lot of time at the library at my school. While I am there, the amount of unhealthy food I see people consuming is quite disgusting! This time of year, we are mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausted. We have been studying hard for 8 months and it is critical to give our bodies the nutrients we need and crave! Yet the amount of chip bags I see in the garbage and fast food containers says that we aren’t doing that at all. I was browsing Pinterest the other day and came across this recipe for Spicy Oven-Roasted Chickpeas and I thought that they looked so good that I made them right then and there. Yum!
This got me thinking, if I got up in the morning and whipped up this recipe (legit takes 1.5 min to prepare) and put it in the oven, by the time I would be ready to leave, the chickpeas would be ready too! And not only that, I could have these as my salty, healthy study snack later in the day! It is soooo simple to find healthy alternatives to the unhealthy things we want to eat. This is my sub-in for chips! So yummy and so versatile. I followed the recipe to a T, but I’m sure you could get a little wild with them and try out some different flavours.
So, I challenge you! Next time you are feeling like snacking on something unhealthy – whether your sitting down to watch tv, study or work! Try making some of these instead of opening that bag of chips! I promise you that you will not be disappointed!
So yum! Let me know what you think!
