Chick Please!!

As a professional Nutrition and Weight Loss Coach and Mommy I am always looking for new exciting ideas when it comes to feeding my clients and my family. I'm always looking for ways to keep my diet balanced with all right macro-nutrients (protein, fats, carbs & fiber) and phyton-utrients (vitamin and Minerals) and as scientific as that sounds it's actually quite satisfying.

For example did you know that Chick Peas are a super food? Now I'm not Vegan, Paleo, Ciliac or Dr Bernstein but I can tell you that I am certain that Chick Peas need to be a staple in any ones diet!

Full of fiber that lowers blood cholesterol, a great source of iron for those lacking energy, and  a perfect protein source when combined with a leafy green or whole grain, these Legumes are Super CHICKS! Coming in Low Glycemic, they control insulin responses and produce the right gut flora for ultimate absorption of their nutrients;  Providing everything you need to feel satisfied... and if you watch "Sex In The City" you'll know they promote hormone production:)

That being said they are versatile too! Some recipes that include Chick Peas in my monthly meal plans include;

Home Made Chickpea Salsa


Seasoned Crunchy Snacks

 Salad Toppers

Quinoa Chickpea Salad

Protein Waffles are Pancakes with abs!  After all abs are made in the kitchen!
