If you know you are on a diet, you tend to tell yourself that it will be over soon and you can eat "normally" again soon. When you change your overall eating habits, that is not the case, meaning you really have to have foods that are healthy, but also satisfying.
It is not overly difficult for me to find meals that I like that are also healthy, but I am a huge snacker, and finding snacks that hit the spot without packing excessive calories is hard. There are always fruits and yogurt and things of that sort, and they are great, but when you have a craving for crunchy and savory, they are not going to seem good.
Not being able to satisfy certain cravings is one of the biggest sabotages to a "diet". That leaves you feeling deprived and leads to resenting the foods that you ca have, even if it is something you like(such as fruit like I mentioned before).
Thankfully, I recently found a fabulous snack that crushes all my crunchy cravings. Pulse Roasted Chickpeas are delicious!
Seriously, I always used to think that I could eat my favorite foods all the time and never get tired of them, but it is funny how fast I found out that is wrong. I had dental work that prevented me from eating solids for awhile. I spent 2 days on only protein shakes(that I normally loved) and quickly grew to hate that.
I moved to cake since it was soft and I did not really need to chew it. Sounds amazing right, tons of cake, well it was actually awful and I was craving anything but cake or sweets. It is the same with everything, you need a wide variety or you will not be happy eating it.
Pulse has so many options. There are 4 varieties of Roasted Chickpeas:
Sea Salt & Garlic:
Spicy Lemon Zest:
All the chickpeas are crunchy, flavorful and filling. They really hit the spot in a crunch craving.
There is also sweet items like granola and cereal.
Apple Cinnamon Raisin Granola:
Vegan Dark Chocolate Cereal:
The crazy thing is that both the granola and the cereal are also made with chickpeas. I never pictured chickpeas used for such sweet foods. They completely work too. It is so cool. Now I have a healthy, protein packed, low fat/calorie way to crush sweet cravings too.
As great as everything tastes, it is so cool that they are also super low in fat and calories, high in protein and fiber, gluten-free and low on the glycemic index. Pulse Roasted Chickpeas(granola and cereal) are like a super snack. This healthy lifestyle will be a breeze. Bye-bye cravings, hello delicious health.
