Chickpeas offer a nutty, creamy, and savory taste and are jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber! They make a great base for many dishes and depending on how much you eat they can be a part of your diet even if you are working to overcome SIBO and IBS.
You can eat chickpeas with soup, salads, and even pasta! They are a great source of soluble and insoluble fiber to support movement in and hydration of the gut to keep you regular and satisfied. They are low sulfur, low histamine when fresh, and in less than ¼ cup portions, they are low FODMAP. Chickpeas make a great addition to soups, salads, wraps, crackers, and more.
