You'll find yourself popping these little chickpea (aka garbanzo beans) nuggets into your mouth one right after another, and the good news is you don't have to feel one bit guilty about it.

Chickpeas are an excellent source of vegetarian-friendly protein and  they are a rich source of dietary fiber which slows down digestion and helps combat blood sugar spikes, known to cause fatigue and mood irritation.

Munching on these Sriracha Roasted Chickpeas is an excellent choice for those of you who love an afternoon snack that gives you  the energy to get through the rest of the day, and yet not weigh you down with empty calories. They're lightly spicy, lightly sweet and have the pleasant texture of soft peanuts. Keep a ziplock bag full of them in your purse or in your desk so that you're ready to snack healthfully whenever your stomach growls (more photo prop humor).

If you're a lover of chickpeas, then you might also want to check out my Sweet and Smoky House Hummus and my Signature Artichoke and Chickpea Hummus. They're both totally yummy and make great dips for vegetables and crackers.

And if you're looking for something to compliment all those yummy chickpea dips and snacks you've been munching on, how about you mix up a big pitcher of Bloody Mary's to wash it all down with?
