CARE Snack: Roasted Chickpeas and Herbal Digestive Tea

Roasted chickpeas were made for us “salty snackers”. Replace the afternoon pretzels with this high-fiber, high-protein yet salty and crunchy- alternative. Chickpeas are a rich pre-biotic food (from our CARE Bonus Step: Strengthening Digestion). Pair with an herbal digestive tea, like ginger or mint, for a therapeutic mid-day break that actually support your intestinal cells vs stress them (like high caffeine, high sugar afternoon snacks). PLUS, this is a great portable snack that keeps in desk drawers and bags making sure adhering to meal timing is not a problem!

  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 1

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce roasted chickpeas, (1 oz= 1/3 cup)
  • herbal tea (prepared)

Notes

  • Roasted chickpeas are getting easier to find in the snack or deli sections of your store (they can also be found online).
  • Biena is a favorite brand of mine.
  • Do watch your ingredient labels and avoid excess additives and flavorings. My go-to is simple “sea salt” flavors.
