Lentil, Chickpea & Carrot Healthy Salad

I’ve been up all night but not because of recipe testing but because of my baby crying.
So please excuse my mistakes, if you spot any.
I can honestly say last night was the roughest night of all.
Don’t know what the reason is though. 
It might be hunger, teething or who knows what but it was tough. 
I’m dreaming of my bed right now but I feel scared as I don’t know how this night will go.
I hope this is the worst it gets.
But enough mummy/baby talk, let’s share today’s recipe.
It’s a healthy lentil, carrot and chickpea salad.
It’s very nutritious and filling so it’s perfect for a light lunch option.
Here’s what you need.
