Paprika Roasted Chickpeas

While it is never good to have the goal of losing weight when you are pregnant I am determined that I won’t put on any unnecessary weight during this pregnancy. Not only am I motivated to stay healthy and keep a healthy weight gain for reasons that I don’t want to have a lot of weight to loss after the baby is born but it helps ensure a healthier pregnancy and birth. So in order to make sure I am able to stick to my goals I have been loading myself up on lots of high protein, lower fat snacks. I am a big stove top popcorn lover and while that is already a lower fat snack I wanted more ideas so I don’t get bored and get tempted to indulge on less healthy options. These roasted chickpeas have very quickly surpassed my love for popcorn, which is saying something because I am a big lover of popcorn. They are crunchy and full of flavour and just perfect for movie night.

Did you have any health goals for your pregnancy?

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
