Weight Loss Wonder Food.. Chickpeas


Uncooked Chickpeas

They're known by multiple names - Bengal gram, garbanzo beans, Egyptian peas or Kabuli Chana. But chickpeas, as they're most commonly known, just might be the latest weight loss wonder food. This versatile legume hits high on the satiety  chart, which means that it helps you feel fuller longer, making you less likely to snack throughout the day. 

In a  recent study published in the journal Appetite, participants who ate a half cup of chickpeas daily, consumed fewer calories from high fat, low fiber foods. It's no wonder - just a half-cup packs six grams of fiber and seven grams of protein. And, chickpeas are potent antioxidants that provide an array of benefits including regulating your blood sugar, digestive tract support and heart health.

Here are few favorite ways to enjoy them:

  • Add them to a veggie stew
  • Toss in olive oil and spices & roast in the oven
  • Mash them with avocado & enjoy in a wrap
  • Add them to your favorite pasta dish
  • Mix a handful in a salad
