Choice Chickpea Salad

This refreshing salad is also called a “Deconstructed Falafel Salad” because it features the same ingredients as a falafel sandwich, but in a healthier format! There’s no frying or baking involved... just mix everything together and enjoy. It’s a fun, satisfying, and energizing salad, perfect as the spring weather gets warmer.


2 cups cooked brown rice
1 can (15 oz.) chickpeas
1 small leek, cleaned, greens removed &thinly sliced
2 cloves roasted garlic, minced
1/4 – 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 – 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. ground coriander
3 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. flax oil
salt & pepper (to taste)
2 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds
Additional options: chopped cucumber, tomato, or tahini sauce, if desired


  1. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl until everything is well distributed and evenly coated in spice.
  2. Either heat and serve, or cover and stash it in the fridge until chilled. Note: It will last up to 5 days refrigerated, so you can make this on Monday and enjoy it throughout the work week with ease.

High Fiber & Heart Health

A high-fiber diet reduces your lifetime risk of cardiovascular disease, according to research presented at an American Heart Association meeting. Northwestern University researchers analyzed data from more than 11,000 people who took part in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

People in the top 25 percent in dietary fiber intake — who consume more than 22 grams of dietary fiber a day from fruits, whole grains, beans and vegetables — were more likely to have a lower lifetime risk for cardiovascular. That was especially so among people between the ages of 20 to 39 and 40 to 59 years.
