~*A salty snack …

I often crave for the nutty flavor of lupin seeds also known as termos … In reality they are a good source of proteins, essential fatty acids and fiber!

Each half a cup (or 80 pieces) of lupin seeds has around 99 calories and can form a healthy snack when served with a glass of tomato juice.

Tomato juice is very low in calories and rich in Lycopene which is an antioxidant that fights against cancer and decreases the levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.

Tomato juice is also a great source of many vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A and C. One cup of tomato juice will give you up to 74 percent of your daily recommended value of vitamin C and 2 percent of your vitamin A.

Enjoy drinking it with a slice of lemon juice and 1/4 tsp of Worcestershire sauce!
