Celebrating Friday with this colorful chickpea, veggie salad packed with protein, fiber and antioxidants. Who says healthy food has to be boring?
This is simple enough to throw together with ingredients you have on hand. It doesn’t require much dressing since the plethora of produce can stand alone for taste. This would be great to bring to a party or gathering, and looks festive too.
Goat Cheese: Creamy, rich with a hint of tang, goat cheese is a great alternative to cheese made from cow’s milk for those who have a lower tolerance for lactose. It boasts 5 grams of protein for every 1 ounce and is high in trace minerals including copper, phosphorus and calcium.
Onions: Onions are commonly overlooked as a source of nutrition but don’t be fooled. Not only are bursting with flavor but this root vegetable supplies flavonoids which are antioxidants that help fight against high cholesterol, reduce inflammation and reduce the likelihood of unwanted blood clots.Facebook and Instagram to keep up with my recipes, nutrition tips, entertaining ideas and collaborations!
