Spicy Chickpeas is one of the quickest & most delicious healthy candida snacks there is. A real alternative to crisps and a definite 'must try' for anyone on the Candida Diet!


  • half tin garbanzo beans (chickpeas) (preferably organic)
  • garlic granules
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper & tumeric


This is one of my favourite Candida Snacks!

It has saved me countless times, when I was getting intense cravings and had almost blown my candida diet...

It’s so easy to make as well.

This snack needs quite a bit of salt to make it palatable I find.

But if you get the mixture right it tastes heavenly and you’ll never be driven to eating crisps when watching movies again.

Instead you’ll reach for this quick & healthy candida snack.


If you don’t have a can of chickpeas at home - a pot of organic hummous from a supermarket will do, too.

Eat up to 1-2 celery sticks and 1-2 medium carrots with no more than a ⅓ of the entire hummous pot and you’ll be safe from any candida cravings for a few hours, promise.


Step 1
All you do is empty a half a tin of garbanzo beans (chickpeas) into a sieve.
Step 2
Wash the garbanzo beans thoroughly.
Step 3
Heat a tablespoon full of Olive oil with a bit of tumeric, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and salt and freshly ground black pepper in a small frying pan.
Step 4
Chuck the chickpeas in the hot oil and toss them in the spice mixture for a bit until they are evenly coated and hot.
Step 5
Then sprinkle some garlic granules onto them, still tossing them around in the frying pan.

Use only a sprinkling of garlic granules here, not fresh garlic. Otherwise you might find yourself at one end of the dinner table -all by yourself ;-)
