Chickpea Salad Is a High Protein Food

Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are tasty legumes that are particularly delicious when cooked.

Chickpeas have many health benefits. They contain lots of fiber, protein, antioxidants, minerals, carbohydrate, iron, phosphorous, folate, manganese, etc. They have additional benefits, as well. They help to control blood sugar levels. Chickpeas increase satiety and hence may help in weight loss. Due to high fiber content, they improve digestion and bowel movement. They may also help to protect against cancer and heart disease.
