  • Sea Salt
  • Cracked Pepper
  • Smoky Chili & Lime
  • Sweet Cinnamon
  • Mesquite BBQ

The Good Bean Chickpea Healthy Treats

 

I first discovered The Good Bean with my SnackBox Subscription of health snacks delivered to my door! The Smoky Chili & Lime of crunchy roasted chickpeas were delicious. Their roasted spiced chickpeas recipe was addictive! But I wondered what nutrition facts it had.

 

The Good Bean Nutrition Info

 

Each serving size has approximate 7g protein, 6g fiber, and low sodium. The Good Bean uses ingredients that are easy to understand such as roasted chickpeas, expeller-pressed safflower or sunflower oil, coarse salt, and natural Vitamin E. So really, I am snacking on vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, non-GMO, Hexane free. The Good Bean uses clean ingredients that are Fair Trade and follows Good Manufacturing Practices. Good for me. Good for the environment!

 

The Good Bean Chickpea Healthy Treats

So next time you see yourself craving for that bag of processed chips, reconsider! Try a healthier alternative to  deep fried potatoes. I really want to try the Thai Coconut flavor. It sounds like the perfect dessert recipe!

There hasn’t been a lot of really good bubble waffles lately, until now. Recently opened in Aberdeen Mall. Bubble Waffle Richmond Aberdeen Centre 街頭美食(雞蛋仔) offers delicacies served by street vendors, food carts in Hong Kong. Curry fishballs, mixed rice canonoli, fish siu mai dumplings, etc. In fact the line ups here were nuts! We waited over 30 mins and still people were pouring in.

Bubble waffles 雞蛋仔 3.75: Crispy on the outside, warm and tender on the inside. Quite opposite from the stale ones over at Rainbow Cafe (Parker Place). It is moist and is complete with a fragrant egg and milkiness. Also comes in other flavours: Strawberry, sesame, green tea, chocolate and cheesecake.

Hong Kong Rice Roll Combo: Curry fishballs, rice canonoli and fish siu mai 5.50: had a lot of spice and were quite bouncy. Fish Siu Mai weren’t as good as I imagined, but still decent. 4 fish balss, 4 siu mais and lots of rice canonolis. Compared to 3.50 for just 6 fish siu mais this was clearly the better deal.

Overall: 3

Surviving day long attractions can be painful when there aren’t many choices especially when the main food group consists of “Fast Food / Junk Food” – burgers, fries, and pizza becomes tiresome. Luckily there is Granny’s Apple Fries.

DSC_4080 CIMG8181 (2) DSC_4087 DSC_4086

Located in the Castle Hill , beside a witch in the well, this busy little stand offers juicy apple fries sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon served with vanilla cream dipping. The whipped cream is light and not too sweet and the apple slices are tart and tangy – together refreshingly light and crispy. What a nice combo. $4.95 per serving – they are totally worth the splurge!

Be sure to come at least an hour before closing as most food establishments closes early!!

If Cali seems a bit too far just for Apple Fries, these can be easily replicated at home.

  •  Couple Granny Smith Apples, sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • sprinkle some nutmeg for more flavor complexity
  • Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Add apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Sauté/bake 15 – 20 mins /until apples are tender.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream
