Hi loves! I’ve been running a “plant based challenge” group on Facebook and it’s been wonderful! We’ve gone over nutrition, recipes, how to eat a plant based diet on the go, and so much more. One of my favorite and super easy recipes that’s full of protein, fiber, & other good stuff for your bod: chickpea salad. I cook chickpeas ahead of time because it’s just cheaper and I know it’s not covered in salt. You can totally make it from can though, just rinse it. Place 2 cups (or one can) of chickpeas in a food processor or mash…

I’m pretty much obsessed with this new snack! All of us are. I made 2 cans worth of chickpeas and they were gone in 2 days!

Buffalo Roasted Chickpeas Ingredients: 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained well 1 tbs olive oil 8 tbs Franks Hot Sauce sea salt (optional) Directions: Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place chickpeas in a bowl and coat with…

Learning how to read labels and why it’s important to do so has been eye opening and sometimes disgusting. Do you know how many hidden chemicals are in your food?  How much sugar is in your favorite foods? Well, that excludes me. I buy sugar free food and health bars. Wrong. Let’s take a look at this nutrition label: A few years ago, I was following this crazy diet that included eating these “nutritional” bars. First off, this bar and so many so called health bars, are full of genetically modified ingredients, i.e. fake food. Second, do you see how…
