 Turmeric Chickpea Salad With Mint Dressing

Turmeric Chickpea Salad With Mint Dressing is perfect to kick off the New Year, it is healthy and hearty and a welcome change from all the indulgent foods that were eaten over the past holiday.

I must say that I miss the holidays because I got to spend quality time with my family and friends. But I'm so happy to start a new year, with new goals, new desires and a feeling of growth!

On a lighter note, this salad is great for detoxifying. It is vibrant and colorful, with fresh tomatoes, avocados, and cucumber and flavorful broccoli and roasted chickpeas.

It is hearty, yet it doesn't leave me feeling heavy and weighed down physically or mentally.

Instead, I feel energized and ready to claim my blessings hahaha! Seriously, I feel like I could eat this salad every single day!

Health Benefits of Turmeric

I deliberately used turmeric on the chickpeas because of its healing properties. Tumeric is known to be one of the most healing food on this earth. There are over 6000 peer-reviewed articles written about the benefits of turmeric.

Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, that has all these healing benefits:

  1. Anti-inflammatory
  2. Anti-coagulant
  3. Analgesic
  4. Anti-tumor
  5. Anti-depressant
