It does not matter if you call them chickpeas or garbanzo beans, there is no denying that these legumes are a yummy and healthy treat! Chickpeas are excellent sources of magnesium, iron, zinc, copper and folic acid. The high fiber and protein combined with a low glycemic index makes chickpeas a solid addition to any weight loss diet plan.*
Try chickpeas in salads, soups and stews. For a simple snack, enjoy a ½ cup of chickpeas for a low calorie nibble that will keep you feeling full.
