It happens to the best of us.
It happened to me yesterday.
Maybe it has happened to you too, at one time or another.
I'm talking about when it's 5:40 p.m. Everyone in your household (including you!) is hungry. Maybe even on the edge of "hangry".
But there are no fragrant culinary smells wafting from the vicinity of your kitchen stove. Not a single one.
No promise that "Dinner will be ready soon".
What's a person to do?
One could, I suppose, make a quick and desperate run to the local McFast food joint. (Not recommended.)
Or one could pull out this recipe for Butter Chickpeas. (Highly recommended!)
It's quick. It's easy. It's totally divine!
And so, so nourishing!
Here are five fabulous anti-cancer reasons why:
Lycopene has been shown to suppress the cancer-forming actions of oxidation, inflammation, angiogenesis, and cell proliferation and migration for multiple cell types.
A long-term scientific study concluded that bean intake (along with greens) is the most protective dietary predictor of survival among the elderly!
And now, for the recipe. Bon appétit!
