Those stray hunger pangs between meals are the greatest hurdle in achieving one's weight-loss goals. Unlike carefully planned meals, we end up grabbing whatever is at hand when we feel like having a snack. Hence it helps to keep some healthy ingredients in the fridge that can be turned into a quick bite. Boiled chickpeas are one of the most versatile ingredients. Add a small jar of mango and pepper salsa to go with it, and you are good to go.
