Chickpeas are high in both protein and fibre, which means they have the great knack of keeping you fuller for longer. Their protein and fibre content also means that your blood sugars are kept stable.
Chickpeas pack a punch with Magnesium that gives the bowels an all-important helping hand to stay regular and Choline, which, not only helps with memory and learning but also reduces chronic inflammation. Inflammation is something that we don’t want - especially inflammation of the skin.
Folate is another great vitamin that Chickpeas possess Folate supports adrenal function and helps to calm your nervous system. SkinB5 Acne Control Tablets and Caplets contain Folic Acid, which is what Folate is named when used in supplements.
Chickpeas can be used in many recipes but how can you go past Hummus?
I love having home made Hummus in the fridge because…
You know it has no artificial preservatives in it.
You can use it for so many snacks. As a dip, on toast (I’ve even tried it on toast with banana!) with salad, on a baked potato – yum.
** Try adding some Chilli, Paprika or Coriander if you fancy a change.
I usually guesstimate the amounts in the recipe because you can always taste and add a little more of something to suit your taste. Change it up so you’ll never get bored. Try adding herbs or different spices; you’ll end up with something amazing.
