Healthy Fast Food Review

First off, I want to assure you this is NOT an add. I was not paid or influenced in any way to speak positively about this product. Now that is out of the way, let’s get to the goods.

I’m so excited to finally have this fast food! I mean, it has everything: convenience, cheapness, deliciocity, nutrition, and you can find it in any store (aka findability…yeah these are all real words). The best part of this food is that you can eat a giant serving and not feel disgusting. On the contrary, you will have a ton of energy.

If you haven’t had one of these in the past 24 hours, do yourself a favor and go purchase a big bag of bright orange carrots!

“Har har, you got me. I’ve had carrots before. This is boring.” Okay, hypothetical reader, you want excitement? Try this on for size. One carrot will basically make you a vitamin A superhero. How does 157% of your daily value of vitamin A sound? And if you think you can only get potassium from bananas, boy are you mistaken. By the way, if you’re taking biotin for your skin and hair, stop it. Eat carrots instead. They are 100% more delicious than a pill.

If you don’t feel like eating them raw, you can boil them, mash them, stick ’em in a souproast them, make noodles out of them, or drink them in a delicious smoothie.

Livin’ the life…

When I was a child, I loved carrots so much that I once turned slightly orange (everything in moderation, people). Then as I aged and my mom started switching out carrots for other orange things. Doritos. Cheetos. Kraft Singles. Reese’s Pieces. When did the process of going to a store to buy bags of sugar and salt snacks become easier than going to a store to buy carrots?

TL;DR: Don’t waste time reading ingredient labels. Eat only ingredients.

Be more like Bugs = be more of a boss.

Chickpeas: The New Bread

I know, I know. Them’s fightin’ words. And no I’m not suggesting you give up bread for the rest of forever, because sometimes all you want is a nice fresh baguette and I won’t be there to stop you. BUT on the daily, when you’re trying to stay away from the processed stuff, think chickpeas.

Chickpeas are high in protein, fiber, and have a low glycemic index. They also can help lower bad cholesterol, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Want versatility? You’re in luck! You can do anything to chickpeas and they will be delicious. Seriously, anything. Don’t believe me? Well here’s about a month’s worth of recipes to start you off in one convenient list.

They can replace croutons in salads…

Chips? What chips? You won’t need any deep fried crap when you have spicy/sweet/salty roasted crispy chickpeas.

In conclusion, go buy chickpeas. And if your local grocery store is out, sub garbanzo beans. Either way, your life is about to change.
