I have been searching for recipes with couscous and chickpeas, and came up with this combination which I am sharing today. It is such a fun vegetarian dish for healthful eating, and a great addition to my recipes for the Fat Smash Diet, and for Lent.
This mid-December wedding had a Christmas theme, and it took place in Germany (Bavaria…to be exact), with breathtaking scenery of snow covered hills and tree tops.
The Bride incorporated her Ukrainian traditions into the wedding ceremony and reception, and the Groom complimented it with his German wedding traditions.
I personally like to prepare meatless meals on Wednesdays and Fridays for the duration of the Great Lent, as well the whole Holy Week, which is the week before Easter Sunday.

We are into the first week of Phase II, so additional foods are being introduced back into our daily menu.
