Garbanzo bean salads are my current go-to lunch. You can make them over the weekend (or whenever you have free time) and enjoy them all week! Garbanzo beans are packed with protein and fiber so they keep you fueled and feeling full throughout the day. It is so easy to pack these salads with tons of nutritious and delicious vegetables!
