Snack Attack

Tonight I was looking for something to snack on, and I found 2 cans of chick peas in my cupboard but I didn't feel like making hummus so I went searching for an alternative. Let me tell you, WOW, these little buggers are DE-LISH.....give them a try you won't be sorry

Chickpeas are low in fat, a great source of zinc, folate and protein!! They are also very high in dietary fiber and hence a healthy source of carbohydrates for persons with insulin sensitivity or diabetes.

Roasted Chickpeas

1 can Chickpeas
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon Salt
Garlic Powder
(whatever spices you want really)

Rinse and drain chickpeas. Toss with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Spread on a cookie sheet

Bake at 400 for 45-50 minutes. Turning every 15 minutes. Watch them in the last 5 minutes so they don't burn. They turn into a nut-like little treat that is weight loss friendly


  1. i must say that I tried the Roasted Chickpeas and they were very tasty. since surgery melissa has been trying all kinds of different foods and all have been great

  2. you have to say that, or I wont cook for you anymore..lmao
