A dinner meal plan featuring quinoa!
Here’s this week’s lineup! The feature food is chickpeas!
This little legume hails originally from Turkey but is now grown around the world. It’s a staple in Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Indian cuisine. You can take a trip around the world without ever leaving your home, just be eating dishes featuring chickpeas!
Chickpeas contain raffinose, a short-chain carbohydrate that passes through the digestive tract and acts as “food” for beneficial bacteria, such as Bifidobacteria.
Chickpeas are a low GI food, which means the carbs in chickpeas get absorbed at a slow, sustained rate, providing a steady supply of energy to the body for hours after ingestion.
KITCHEN TIP: Got an Instant Pot? Make a big batch of chickpeas by filling the pot 1/3 with chickpeas, then covering with water to 2/3 full. Close the lid and seal. Select MANUAL and 45 minutes. You’ll end up with the tastiest, creamiest, chickpeas ever!
