In an effort to include more plant-based protein in my diet, I was excited to try a fun take on chicken salad using chickpeas instead of chicken.

Great Meal Prep

Note: it is a good idea if you are prepping this ahead to keep the salad and bread separate until ready to eat. Bring the chickpea salad portion along with the greens in a food container along with the bread in a separate container. Spoon the mixture onto the bread when ready to eat.

This doesn’t have the same shear amount of protein as my normal meals do.

I’ve been learning that a lot of the classic teachings about the amount of protein needed in a day to build muscle isn’t based on science. And the actual amount you need is much less than classically thought.

As long as you are getting enough calories so your body has the energy it needs to use the protein you do eat to turn it into muscle, you will still build muscle.

You’ll also likely have this between two pieces of bread. Using higher-protein bread, such as Dave’s Killer Bread 21 Grains & Seeds, you can add 10g of protein to the meal as well.
