This salad could not be easier and it's super good for you too! Check out the nutritional information below - hello protein and vitamins!
The nutritional information was determined through the app MyFitnessPal which I have on my iPod. It's a great app to track your dietary intake, exercise and progress as well as communicate and get encouragement from your friends. It also lets you put in your own recipes. I love it. I need to use it more often. You'd be surprised at how many calories you actually eat in a day. My sister-in-law lost a good amount of weight from using it and it has started her on a pathway to healthy living (which she chronicles over at Lemon Living). I'm not paid to brag about the app. I just think it's a really good resource for those trying to improve their health habits. If you have the app you can locate this recipe by searching for Mediterranean Chickpea Salad - The Creative Vault.
