Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Yes, chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) are best known for their essential role in hummus, but these legumes' benefits are much more, including being used in curries, stews, stir fries, salads, chilies or eaten as is. 1 cup provides 269 calories, 4 g of healthy fats, 45 g carbohydrates and 12 g fiber, which is half of the recommended daily intake of Institute of Medicine for women and one third recommended intake for men. Thankfully, as a vegetarian protein option, you get 15 g protein for each 1 cup of cooked chickpeas. With a good amount of garlic, your body will thank you. Garlic helps control bacterial, viral, fungal, yeast and worm infections and has been deemed as able to kill bacteria like e. coli and salmonella.

Founder's story:

"My father had just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my mom was
managing her hypothyroid, and my best friend was struggling with painful IBS.
I went online to search for food-based and natural solutions that could help
them heal. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and left me more confused. I thought, ‘There must be an easier way to discover solutions for various ailments from real experts and from people who had done it themselves. So I decided to build a resource—a platform for food as medicine solutions
for all your health needs. And I decided to take the wisdom from this community to create real food based products that heal.
