Vegan Veggie Chickpea Salad

Every single body has a different set of nutritional needs, and every body functions best on a different set of guidelines! Lately I have been challenging myself to implement more Vegan Recipes into my diet and am learning more and more about proteins in vegetables and how to leverage those! I do not include soy in my diet, personally, so looking for other proteins sources has been challenging but fun! Chickpeas are a good one! This salad is delicious and has some good staying power in terms of satisfying me and keeping me filled for a while! And the Fresh Herbs!!!!! I swear I feel immediate benefits of all these fresh herbs daily!
