If‌ ‌you‌ ‌enjoy‌ ‌a‌ ‌good‌ ‌salad,‌ ‌then‌ ‌constantly‌ ‌having‌ ‌to‌ ‌go‌ ‌out‌ ‌or‌ ‌order‌ ‌from‌ ‌your‌ ‌favorite‌ ‌salad‌ ‌chain‌ ‌doesn’t‌ ‌sound‌ ‌like‌ ‌the‌ ‌most‌ ‌practical‌ ‌way‌ ‌to‌ ‌go‌ ‌about‌ ‌satisfying‌ ‌your‌ ‌green‌ ‌cravings.‌ ‌ ‌While‌ ‌Chopt‌ ‌and‌ ‌Fresh‌ ‌&‌ ‌Co‌ ‌are‌ ‌good‌ ‌places‌ ‌to‌ ‌gas‌ ‌up‌ ‌on‌ ‌veggie‌ ‌meals,‌ ‌I‌ ‌understand‌ ‌that‌ ‌not‌ ‌everybody‌ ‌has‌ ‌the‌ ‌time‌ ‌nor‌ ‌the‌ ‌money‌ ‌to‌ ‌spare‌ ‌for‌ ‌regular‌ ‌visits‌ ‌and‌ ‌take-outs.‌ ‌Eating‌ ‌clean‌ ‌and‌ ‌being‌ ‌healthy‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌quite‌ ‌expensive‌ ‌sometimes,‌ ‌but‌ ‌that‌ ‌doesn’t‌ ‌mean‌ ‌that‌ ‌we‌ ‌can’t‌ ‌make‌ ‌delicious‌ ‌and‌ ‌nutritious‌ ‌meals‌ ‌from‌ ‌affordable‌ ‌and‌ ‌very‌ ‌basic‌ ‌ingredients!‌ ‌‌If‌ ‌you’re‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌pinch‌ ‌of‌ ‌time‌ ‌and‌ ‌money,‌ ‌reach‌ ‌for‌ ‌quick‌ ‌and‌ ‌flavorful‌ ‌canned‌ ‌good‌ ‌recipes,‌ ‌like‌ ‌today’s‌ ‌salmon‌ ‌and‌ ‌chickpea‌ ‌salad.‌ ‌

Salmon‌ ‌is‌ ‌an‌ ‌oily‌ ‌fish‌ ‌known‌ ‌for‌ ‌its‌ ‌rich‌ ‌reserves‌ ‌of‌ ‌protein‌ ‌and‌ ‌omega-3‌ ‌fatty‌ ‌acids,‌ ‌making‌ ‌it‌ ‌good‌ ‌for‌ ‌building‌ ‌muscle,‌ ‌lowering‌ ‌blood-pressure,‌ ‌and‌ ‌even‌ ‌boosting‌ ‌heart-health.‌ ‌Chickpeas‌ ‌are‌ ‌“legumes”‌ ‌and‌ ‌are‌ ‌rich‌ ‌in‌ ‌fiber,‌ ‌calcium,‌ ‌magnesium,‌ ‌and‌ ‌other‌ ‌bone-strengthening‌ ‌nutrients.‌ ‌Together,‌ ‌they‌ ‌make‌ ‌for‌ ‌an‌ ‌incredibly‌ ‌hearty‌ ‌meal‌ ‌that’s‌ ‌both‌ ‌pocket-friendly‌ ‌and‌ ‌super‌ ‌easy‌ ‌to‌ ‌make.‌ ‌ ‌

In‌ ‌a‌ ‌bowl‌ ‌or‌ ‌as‌ ‌a‌ ‌sandwich,‌ ‌this‌ ‌recipe‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌great‌ ‌high-protein‌ ‌and‌ ‌low-carb‌ ‌snack‌ ‌for‌ ‌when‌ ‌you’re‌ ‌feeling‌ ‌a‌ ‌little‌ ‌hungry‌ ‌at‌ ‌home‌ ‌or‌ ‌are‌ ‌in‌ ‌need‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌quick‌ ‌refill‌ ‌after‌ ‌a‌ ‌smoking‌ ‌workout.‌ ‌ ‌

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
