Chickpeas are a nutty-tasting legume popular in many global cuisines. Whether it appears in creamy Moroccan hummus, a Spanish soup, or a spicy Indian curry. Chickpeas fill you up without taking a toll on your waistline. It may also lower your cholesterol, help lose weight, build muscle, regulate blood sugar, and as an energy booster and an immune booster. Fiber helps keep your digestive system working.
Chickpeas are common in many warm and sunny climates, which is good news for those who eat them. That’s because they act as a natural sunblock, with high levels of a nutrient called manganese. Just one cup of cooked chickpeas contains 85% of your daily value of the mineral, which functions as an antioxidant in skin cells. It also protects against damage from UV light, which decreases rashes.
