Add roasted chickpeas to green salads (instead of nuts or croutons), toss them into grain and potato dishes for crunch, or use them with dried fruits for a sweet and savory trail mix. The Good Bean offers the crispy legumes ($2.50 for 2.5 ounces) in sea salt, cracked pepper, smoky chili and lime, and sweet cinnamon. Nibbling them is an easy way to add protein and fiber to your diet. Available at Roche Bros. locations; Cambridge Naturals, 23 White St., Cambridge, 617-492-4452; and Harvest Co-op Markets, 580 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, 617-661-1580; or go to www.thegoodbean.com.
