When you are busy looking after kids it can be easy to reach for convenience foods at times.
But if you are trying to lose weight, traditional convenience foods tend to be full of fats, sugars, salt and other ingredients that might push the scales in the wrong direction.
Why not think about your pantry cupboard in a new way – as a source of healthy convenience foods.
For instance tins of tuna, quick cook brown rice, or the humble tin of legumes such as kidney beans, chickpeas or lentils.
Besides being economical and tasting great, chickpeas are packed with protein and fibre – both essential for healthy weight loss.
We also love chickpeas as they are low in fat, and are packed with vitamins and minerals.
The already-cooked variety found in a tin is ready to go in a matter of seconds.
Today we have a roundup of our top 10 favourite recipes that use chickpeas as the basis for a healthy meal or snack.
Be sure to keep a tin or two on hand for a quick and easy option when time is against you.
