Tomatoe and Chickpea Salad

Although beans are fairly high in calories, they are extremely nutritious and are still recommended as a healthy ingredient you should be adding to your healthy eating plan. Chickpeas are filled with plenty of health benefits: high in fiber, they help slow absorption of sugar (good for diabetics), high in calcium, magnesium, potassium and even protein. This is a simple recipe, that takes less than 10 minutes to prepare, and tastes delicious. Enjoy!
