2. Chickpeas

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, belong to a broad category of legumes. Just like kidney beans, black beans, soybeans and green peas, they offer an excellent source of plant-based protein along with fiber and folate.

Studies show chickpeas could help reduce the risk of heart disease.2Katherine D. McManus, MS. ‘10 Superfoods to Boost a Healthy Diet.’ Harvard Health Blog, 15 Apr. 2020, www.health.harvard.edu/blog/10-superfoods-to-boost-a-healthy-diet-2018082914463 Available dried or canned, they're easy to add to everyday salads, soups, casseroles and chili. Mashed chickpeas are also the main ingredient in hummus, a savory dip and sandwich spread. Try it as a healthy alternative to mayo.
