Eating chickpeas on a regular basis can make you eat less, make healthier food choices and improve you bowel health according to a new study published in Appetite. This study’s participants consumed at least four cans of chickpeas (in various meals) per week for 12 weeks. It was found that they ate generally less (especially cereal-based foods) during the chickpea period, felt more satiated and their digestion was better.
