  • I don’t know about you, but when I’m trying to maintain a healthy diet (hello, fast-approaching swimsuit weather!), my biggest threat is snack time. Tell me you’ve been there – you’ve got about an hour or two before dinner and you need just a little something to tide you over. You look around… and you have two choices, like fruit and potato chips. Nine times out of 10, my greedy little hands will go for those potato chips. MUST EAT SALTY SNACK. It’s a sickness that sounds a lot like a caveman. So instead of completely derailing your diet, I suggest having a larger variety of healthier options on hand. This is a no-brainer, of course, but it’s one that can be difficult to keep on track. These yummy Roasted Chickpeas are a super quick, super easy and super delicious snack to munch on in those threatening moments between meals. They’re fairly low in fat and calories but super high in fiber, protein and folate.
