Macaroni and PEAS | Vegan, Gluten Free, Nut Free, Oil Free

Mmmm comfort food at its finest.Β  I love using chickpea pasta and other bean pastas.Β  They’re super high in protein, fiber, iron, and resistant starch to really help feed your good gut bacteria- helping not only your digestion and blood sugar levels, but also your immunity and mood! Lots of nerves in the gut- feed it well!
