5. Chickpeas

Also known as garbanzo beans, these little guys are filled with amino acids, vitamin K, vitamin B, and are overall healthy for you. I love hummus and always knew it was good for me, but not necessarily how good. Beans are one of the healthiest foods you can eat, but having too many can also be a bit uncomfortable. I sprinkle chickpeas on my salad or put them in a jar of vinegar and sugar with some canned wax beans, green beans, and red kidney beans. This makes a yummy salad once it’s chilled.
