Garlic Parmesan Roasted Chickpeas

Healthy Living is something we should all aspire to.  I’m not crazy about the word diet, unless a doctor puts you on one.  For me, and many I talk with daily, we just need to bite the bullet and eat right and exercise…aka a little Healthy Living.  I’m about to enter airport world, lethal for Healthy Living (just behind Amusement Parks and County Fairs).  Seriously, someone please start an airport restaurant franchise featuring healthy living options, that are quick and portable.  I’m taking these Garlic Parmesan Roasted Chickpeas with me…baby steps.
