Wishing you all the best,

Chickpea Burger with Arugula
Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are a great source of protein, zinc, folate and fiber. They are low in fat and recent studies have shown they can be helpful in lowering cholesterol.
This grilling season, try this recipe for a healthy alternative to hamburgers.
If you have any questions regarding the Mediterranean diet or other nutrition needs, in-home nutrition counseling by Wexner Heritage Village Wellness Coordinator Becky Kraynek, RD, LD, CNWC, is available. Services include individual diet counseling, weight loss planning, fitness programs, meal planning and disease management.
