Today I am super excited to share a recipe that I just discovered yesterday. It was soooo good that I wanted to share it immediately. I have been a salt & vinegar chips girl my whole life. I love them...and the more salty and vinegary, the better. Unfortunately, salt and vinegar chips are not really "healthy" (by "not really", I actually mean "not at all") healthy options. I have struggled to find something that will fill those cravings with less calories..or at the very least more nutrients. I have found it! Thanks to Angela at Oh She Glows for publishing this recipe! I copied it straight from her website, but head on over and check out more of her recipes. My mouth starts watering just reading them!
Salt & Vinegar Chick Peas
2 cups canned chickpeas*
3 - 4 cups white vinegar
1 tsp coarse sea salt
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
*Note: I assume you could also use dry chickpeas and cook them in vinegar from scratch. Also note: When I brought the cooked chickpeas to a boil, some of the peas split open and some of the skins came off. Not to worry if this happens-it will turn out regardless!
I forgot to take pictures, so check out Angela's below.

These were awesome straight out of the oven and still great a couple hours later as a snack. They didn't last long! All three of my kids loved them as well, and my husband couldn't get over how great they were.
Question of the day: What's your favorite guilty flavor? Salt, chocolate, sweet, tangy, sour?
