This is a really great spread that my girls and I love. We have enjoyed this spread on bread and crackers.

My favorite crackers I buy at Costco. You can find the exact ones in my…

Chickpea Salad
Print Recipe
Beans provide excellent nutrients to our body, even more than whole grains. These high in fiber, low calorie, high nutrient foods help us to feel fuller longer and help keep away food cravings. Research shows how beans protect against many types of cancer (research this on your own because there is a lot our there proving this). If beans are relatively a new food for you, be sure to chew them up well so they can be easily digested. This will help with eliminating gas and bloating. Start out eating a smaller amount each day until your digestive tract adapts to the changes, and gradually increase your intake to around a cup of beans per day (I don't get a cup every day. I just do my best and keep it in mind). This delicious chickpea salad can be used 3 different ways! On crackers, as a sandwich, or as a topping for a salad.
