The Perfect Lunch: Chickpea Sandwich

As a lover of sandwiches, I strongly vouch for this one! It’s healthy, filling, and it’ll give you your daily dose of chickpeas. It’s so simple to make and its delicious. Similar to the tuna sandwich, this one gives you way more nutritional benefits as it contains more essential vitamins. As a plant-based protein, chickpeas help control blood sugar levels,  improve digestion because of its high fibre content, and is a lot better for the gut than tuna. So get in the kitchen and try this recipe out!

On a side note, I’ve recently discovered the “Ezequiel sesame” bread and I am obsessed. It’s definitely the best bread I’ve ever tried, and encourage you to try it too!

Why is life worth living? That’s a very good question. Well, there are certain things I guess that make it worthwhile. Like what? Okay, for me, I would say, dogs, post cards, cafés, hats (especially berets), Paris, stationary, soy lattes, Les Miserables, string lights, and barrettes.
