Hummus hack: I love to use this as a spread on turkey sandwiches, on toast with an over easy egg, or on salads as as tasty and flavorful addition!

Why Chickpeas are So Good for You!
The humble little chickpea is one of my favorite legumes! I love to add them to soups, roast them, make hummus with them and sprout them for salads! Loaded with nutrients, you can’t go wrong with this powerhouse little bean.
Aside from having several vitamins, minerals, balanced macros (CHO, protein, fats), fiber, and antioxidants, these little nuggets have many health benefits!
Due to the awesome protein, fat and fiber content, chickpeas have a low glycemic index and may help to regulate blood sugar, and will keep you full and satisfied longer. As a great source of plant protein, chickpeas contain certain amino acids that help to support health :
- Histidine: necessary for the production of histamine and also plays a role in nervous system health
- Valine: necessary in energy production as well as muscle growth and repair
- Phenylalanine: building block for neurotransmitters like dopamine and epinephrine (adrenaline), and in the production of other amino acids.
- Leucine: necessary in stimulating wound healing, muscle repair, and blood sugar regulation.
- Isoleucine: necessary in immune function and energy regulation.
So grab some chickpeas and let’s get cooking!
