Fresh-Start Challenge Week 2, Day 6: The Three Faces of Chickpeas

Sometimes people ask me if I get bored eating healthy food. Never! Just look at the versatility of the humble bean. In today's menus, you can find chickpeas in different forms. The meals start with a chickpea flour scramble for breakfast and end with a stew featuring whole chickpeas in a tomato sauce. [The classic menu included hummus made with chickpeas.]


Today's Plan

Cook a hot breakfast, relax for lunch with the Spicy Peanut Noodles you made on Day 4, and just steam greens and reheat the Chickpea Stew and quinoa for dinner.


breakfast Oatmeal, Chickpea-Flour Scramble,  tea
lunch Noodles in Spicy Peanut Sauce with Winter Vegetables, orange
snack banana
dinner Chickpea Stew on quinoa, steamed greens (kale or collards), Sweet Sixteen Oatmeal-Raisin Bars
