Banza Gluten Free Chickpea Pasta Is Stellar

Cooks in less than 5 minutes
Life isn't too shabby going gluten free today in 2015. Those on a healthy and strict gluten free lifestyle have a plethora of pasta options. However, the more common corn and rice pastas are lacking in nutrients. Meanwhile vegetable, quinoa and bean pastas start to show more promise.  Generally gluten free replacement pastas can be made from simple ingredients with higher carbs, sugars, low fibers and proteins sustaining the issues of malnutrition. This is why I rarely eat pasta.

Maya Kaimal Chickpea Chips Product Review

Introducing my new favorite chip, Maya Kaimal - chick pea chips! I've been looking for a well formed chip to hold my dips and spreads. Preferably, my chip needs to be healthier than the alternative because most chips are still not "healthy" they're too guilty and lack some basics in my diet such as protein when snacking too often. Yes. I'm a chip-a-holic as it's my biggest food weakness! Chick pea chips are full of protein and fiber and are ideal alone or with homemade guacamole, hummus, tomato and onion salad as well as the occasional cheese or salsa for special occasions and football season!
