Spoiler Alert – I am not Vegan. I am not even vegetarian, though I try to infuse my diet with as many plant based foods as possible on a daily basis.
I also love variety, and am always looking at ways to increase the nutrient value in my foods. This CHICK PEA SMASH is like a vegan ‘mock’ tuna salad and is amazing in a sandwich, or you can plop it on top of a your favourite green salad.
Either way, it will provide you with 11 grams of protein, and an additional 6 grams of fibre, which is great for blood sugar balance.
Plus, it’s scrumptious. It really is. Try it!
