ChickpeasAlso known as Garbanzo beans, chickpeas have been a staple in Middle Eastern diets for thousands of years. Rich in fibre and vitamins, they can help with weight management and improved digestion. Chickpeas are also packed with plant-based protein, making them a go-to for vegans and vegetarians as an alternative to meat.
Olive OilOlive oil is a fabulous source of healthy fats. Don't let the name fool you, healthy fats are essential to our overall functioning. In fact, moderate intake of olive oil has been linked to healthy weight management! Olive oil is also high in antioxidants which have been shown to reduce the risk of illness.
WalnutsWalnuts are chock-full of vitamins, minerals, heart-healthy fats, antioxidants and fibre - and those are just the main ones! They’re also bursting with plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, which is known to improve brain health. This can counteract both inflammation and oxidative stress, which are main causes of cognitive decline.
