For the 5th day of the Marathon, here is another salad, all freebies again. A very short post as I am pressed for time!! :))
A warm salad with lots of fiber and chick peas for protein.
I like broccoli or asparagus when just sauteed with olive oil, salt and pepper. Very totally yum! Here I added in chick peas just for some texture and protein. I used black chick peas, but you can use regular white chick peas!
So to what we eat and how much we eat --> all healthy and can eat how much you want to! :)
2 broccoli heads, florets taken apart
few Asparagus, washed and chopped into 1 inch pieces
Chick peas as needed (I used black, you can use whatever you have available)
1/2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a open pan.
Add the chick peas with some salt and cover and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add the broccoli florets and chopped asparagus. Sprinkle salt and pepper.
Saute by mixing everything together, until the broccoli and asparagus is just slightly cooked through, but has a crunch too!
