Chickpeas are a popular meat replacement with vegetarians. Unlike meat - especially red meat, they are cholesterol free and are often added to heart-healthy protein meals.

In addition, chickpeas are a prebiotic food which acts like fuel for good bacteria, contributing to a healthy microbiome that defends your system against toxins you might encounter from the environment or animal products.
