Kid #1 is done with meat again. She’s gone back to being Vegetarian, and I’m back to thinking a lot about protein sources and keeping her body fueled both for middle school and for gymnastics workouts (sometimes 4 hours in a row). Beans are always my go-to for protein, for all of us, but I like to keep flavors mixed up and keep her taste buds happy so she’s not turning to less healthy options for foods. We’ve done a spicy chickpea recipe, and that’s always a yummy hit in the house, but this time, we’re doing a roasted ranch (and you can use a flavor packet, but this is just as easy!!
My daughter loves to eat these as a snack, or they also taste great as a salad topping/mix-in.
