Good afternoon everyone! Just a quick post today. As someone with a few allergies, I can tell you, one of the hardest aspects is going to someone’s home for dinner, a party or a picnic. Why not offer to bring a few items? AND, who doesn’t love chicken wings? Here is a gluten and allergy-free version. Serve it along with this interesting salad, deconstructed hummus, a unique twist on a classic! These would be a wonderful contribution to any gathering.

As we all know, hummus is made from chickpeas, aka: garbanzo beans. They are a phenomenal source of fiber and unique nutrients.

Here is the nutrition information about chickpeas, courtesy of whfoods.com:

  • High in fiber – 12.5 grams per cup. (FYI-daily recommendations for fiber are 25 grams per day! 1 cup of chickpeas will give you 1/2 your daily requirement!)
  • Lowers risk for heart disease
  • Helps regulate blood sugar
  • Healthy digestive tract (because of the fiber!)

I hope you enjoy this little healthy

and allergy free meal.

Have a wonderful evening!

God Bless! Namaste! #sharethejoy
