Mediterranean breakfast bowl filled with the goodness of chickpeas, yoghurt and spice. There is a lot to love about chickpeas. They are fibre and protein rich and will keep you full until lunch time. This bowl is my way of getting a dose of fats, fibre and protein in the morning post-workout and it doesn't lack on flavour. If you have been advised to avoid saturated fats and yoghurts, skip the yoghurt and substitute with cooked brown rice thats mixed in lemon juice. Yum!
My post-workout breakfast fix.
