Tired of basic crackers and hummus? Turn the snack game up a notch and roast some chickpeas. This recipe is low fat and chickpeas are naturally packed with protein.
And if you’re on board with the superfood craze, you’re in luck — turmeric is best known for its highly anti-inflammatory properties and being nutrient dense.
#SpoonTip: Feel free to experiment with different spices. This snack can also be made sweet if you’re not a savory snacker (pumpkin-spice is a personal favorite) but swap the olive oil for coconut oil in that case.
