Ingredients & Health Benefits

Chickpeas: Chickpeas are a great source of protein and fiber, aiding digestion and supporting stable blood sugar levels. Make sure to drain chickpeas from a can.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Extra virgin olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats and antioxidants, promoting heart health and reducing inflammation. My favorite is Carapelli.

Garlic: Garlic contains allicin, which boosts the immune system and provides anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits. I use fresh garlic here, but you can also use minced garlic. Use the ratio of 1 teaspoon pre clove.

Lime: Limes are high in vitamin C, which enhances immune function and supports skin health.

Garlic Powder: Garlic powder retains many of garlic's benefits, including antioxidant properties and immune system support. My favorite organic garlic power is from Frontier Co-Op.

Salt and Pepper: Salt in moderation helps maintain electrolyte balance and proper muscle function, while pepper contains piperine, which enhances nutrient absorption and has anti-inflammatory properties.
