Spicy Roasted Chickpeas, Guest Post

Today, I recommitted myself to my most-loved and most-hated workout.  You can learn all about it here, or just buy the book here.  The upshot is, I spend 10 minutes at the gym, once a week.  It’s the hardest workout in the history of exercise, you will feel like you are going to pass out, and it only takes ten minutes a week.

TEN MINUTES, people.

My ten minutes of hell are wasted, though, if I come home and eat coconut cream pie, which is what I have in my fridge today, and what I really feel like eating.  Instead, I have to find snacks that don’t involve sugar, and let me tell you, that is no small feat.  These are the days I eat Spicy Roasted Chickpeas.

Why chickpeas, you ask?  Well, they are not a grain, which is actually kind of a huge thing for a lot of us.  This means they are gluten-free.  They have loads of protein and fiber.  They taste yummy, on account of the spices and the roasting.  AND, one can of garbanzo beans has around 25 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber.  Of course, you have to eat the whole can to get all that protein and fiber.

It’s not as much as it sounds, don’t judge me!  Besides, when you try these, you’ll probably eat the whole can yourself too.

My new bloggy buddy Jessica is having her own health crisis, and I offered to share this recipe with her readers today to give her a little time off.  Get all the spicy roasted details and the recipe at My World Made By Hand.
