Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

by Gilad

Quick And Healthy Snacks
 

Crunchy and spicy is a combination that we love in our food! Bake your own crispy chickpeas for a tasty and healthy snack.

INGREDIENTS 
  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 2 to 4 tsp spices such as chili powder, curry powder, garam masala, cumin, smoked paprika, rosemary, thyme, or any of your favorite herbs or spices
 
METHOD 
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). 
Rinse and drain the chickpeas by pouring chickpeas into a strainer and rinsing with running water. 
Pat the chickpeas very dry with a clean dishtowel or paper towels.  They should feel dry to touch. 
Toss the chickpeas with olive oil and salt, and spread the chickpeas out in an even layer on the baking sheet.
Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes until golden and crisp, checking every 10 minutes and giving the pan a shake.
Toss the chickpeas with the spices.
Besides eating these chickpeas as a snack, you can toss them in salads or sprinkle over soup in place of croutons.

by Gilad

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows that tomatoes are loaded with lycopene, a caretenoid antioxidant, and are indeed an excellent food to support a healthy heart!

Exercise for Intelligence

by Gilad

I'm happy to share with you that new research proves that regular exercise not only makes you healthier, it also may make you more intelligent!

In addition to causing the release of chemicals called endorphins, the so called "runner's high", it is now believed that regular exercise may contribute to the formation of new connections among nerve cells in the brain and even play a roll in the growth of new cells! 

So... Be Smart and Be Fit or Be Fit and Be Smart! It works both ways!
