Every guy knows it’s good to eat more vegetables, but sometimes it feels like too much work. So we’ve got a challenge for you – next time you’re in the canned food aisle, load up on chickpeas. There are literally hundreds of ways to use chickpeas, and it doesn’t get much easier than opening a can. When you add some veggies and your favourite stir fry sauce, you can’t go wrong!
