You can use them in a salad, put them in a pita bread or follow my idea and go healthy all the way. I’m sure that you will love them.

Chickpeas (called also garbanzo beans) are incredibly good for you. They are a great source of vegetable protein and fiber. They contain relatively low amount of calories (about 120 per 100 g), which helps with weight loss. Furthermore, they give you energy without raising your blood sugar level that much. The combination of chickpeas and black beans is even more beneficial for your body. Black beans contain almost no fat, low amount of calories (130 per 100 g) and high amount of protein and fiber.
