Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)

Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are very popular in mediterranean dishes, and are most often seen today ground up as the primary component of hummus. Like many other legumes, Chickpeas have a high protein and high fiber mixture that makes it ideal for weight management. In particular, the chickpea also has a ton of minerals that help support bone health and density, such as calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and vitamin K. In addition, the selenium found in chickpeas has been linked to preventing inflammation and detoxifying some cancer-causing compounds in the body.
