Chickpea, orange and mint salad

Hellooo antioxidants! We love the rich colour of this tangy salad!

Chickpeas are an excellent source of fibre and protein (improving blood sugar levels, helping you feel fuller for longer and reducing your cravings) and are low in fat.

In addition, they are a good source of minerals such as iron, zinc, copper, folic acid, and magnesium. Oranges and Pomegranates are a great source of fibre. They also contain antioxidants such as Vitamin C which gives your body the best defence against colds and flu.

Almond milk

This almond milk is rich and creamy and absolutely delicious. Whether you drink almond milk because you’re lactose intolerant or because you prefer the taste, it’s an excellent source of nutrients including protein, calcium, iron, vitamin E and heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Some of the ingredients used in very mainstream popular almond milk brands contain questionable ingredients, mainly carrageenan. Carrageenan is a very common food additive made from red seaweed. Studies showing carrageenan may increase the risk of stomach ulcerations, glucose intolerance, and is cancer promoting. We like Rude Health almond milk as it doesn’t have any nasties in it.

We love Almond milk in hot chocolate, cereal, tea, porridge, milkshakes, smoothies- the list really is endless!

To the recipe!
