Calling all vegetarians!! (Bonus points for all my Greek vegetarians out there!)
You already know that I’m the Queen of “high protein everything”, but as someone who eats animal protein, getting in a high protein diet is certainly WAY easier. So, for anyone who follows a vegetarian diet, this Vegetarian Chickpea Greek Salad recipe is for you. (Note: If you’re vegan, just omit the feta cheese to accommodate your preferences!)
This salad Vegetarian Chickpea Greek Salad is just one of the recipes within my Vegetarian Greek Salad Lunch Prep series. It’s simple, high in protein, and filled with so many good-for-you nutrients with all of the added fresh veggies, healthy fats and spices. The chickpeas are the main protein component in this dish; however, they’re also high in carbohydrates, to give you that added energy boost in the middle of your work day. They’re also a rich source of vitamins, minerals and fiber! (Honestly, chickpeas are SO underrated!)
