Chickpeas are an excellent source of dietary fiber, which is vital for healthy digestion. In just one cup of chickpeas, you’ll receive 12.5 grams of fiber, which is 50 percent of your recommended daily intake. Fiber prevents constipation because it absorbs water and bulks up the stool to help it move smoothly through the digestive tract. Once you are free from constipation, you will also find that other symptoms like cramping, bloating, gas, and other gastrointestinal problems are resolved. Fiber also helps to balance pH levels in the gut, promoting a healthy environment for good gut bacteria to thrive, decreasing the levels of unhealthy gut bacteria.

Kale contains virtually no fat, too. In every 100 grams, there is just 0.1 grams of saturated fat, and 1% of your total fat for the day.
