Nutrition Overview

Chickpeas

Chickpeas are rich sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber, offering a variety of health benefits, such as improving digestion, aiding weight management and reducing the risk of several diseases. Additionally, chickpeas are high in protein and make an excellent replacement for meat in vegetarian and vegan diets. [1]

Cauliflower and Broccoli

Cauliflower contains a high amount of fiber, which is important for digestive health and may reduce the risk of several chronic diseases. Not many veggies contain choline, an essential nutrient that many people are deficient in, but cauliflower and broccoli are rich in it. Choline is involved in brain development and the production of neurotransmitters that are necessary for a healthy nervous system. What’s more, it helps prevent cholesterol from accumulating in the liver. [2]
