Chickpeas are a powerhouse food. Aka garbanzo beans, one cup gives ya 15 grams of protein. They’re high in fiber and folate (great for pregnant mamas!) Chickpeas improve blood sugar levels, maintain bone strength, and benefit heart health. 

I’m also obsessed with these gorgeous fingerling potatoes… wow!…

Bonus: this recipe is oil-free, sugar-free, and gluten-free. Oil-free means easy weight loss but does not mean giving up incredible flavor.

Water-sautéing is the future! – you heard it here first 🙂 It’s easy, delicious, and So. Much. Healthier…
