Wraps: Use some whole wheat wraps and use turkey, lettuces, tomatoes, avocado, any veggie you want and skip the mayo. Use hummus, or mustard. Even better, skip the carbs and go for this idea right here. Oh, maybe even chicken or fish taco bar with tons of vegetables….no, you can’t have the sour cream but you can make a nice low fat guacamole instead; like this one that uses peas in order to cut down on some of the avocado.
Roasted Chickpeas: No, I am not joking!
2 cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon chili powder or 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper if you like even more heat
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
2. Drain garbanzo beans and rinse well with cold water. Let beans drain for 10 minutes, and then pat them dry.
3. When beans are dry, toss them with olive oil, spices and salt. Arrange them in single layer on a foil lined baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes, or until they are browned. Serve warm or let cool. (They can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days)
