In the Kitchen: Detox Moroccan-Spiced Chickpea Glow Bowl

I’ve been working on cutting back wheat, since I notice a huge difference in how I feel when I don’t eat any wheat or white flour. This has been going on for the last two weeks or so, and I’ve been searching for some new healthy lunch options. I discovered this recipe for Moroccan Spiced Chickpea Bowl’s from Pinch of Yum. It blew all of my expectations — and was so quick and easy to make. Spicy, Tomato-y, sweet, savory, and just all around delicious. I didn’t make bowls, but instead ate a portion by itself. Since I had leftovers, the following day for lunch I made “wraps” with a little hummus and (MY FAVORITE WHOLE FOODS FIND) these wheat and grain free veggie wraps (the best when toasted on the stove top)! Moroccan-Spiced Chickpea Bowls will definitely be part of my regular meal plan.
