Chick­peas (1 cup canned): calo­ries 240, pro­tein 12 g, fat 4 g, carbs 40 g Lentils (1 cup cooked): calo­ries 240, pro­tein 18 g, fat 1 g, carbs 40 g “Beans and legumes are nu­tri­tion su­per­stars,” Dun­can says. They con­tain pro­tein, fiber, iron, mag­ne­sium, zinc, fo­late and even a lit­tle healthy fat. Chick­peas (aka gar­banzo beans) are a con­ve­nient pantry sta­ple that can be whipped into hummus, dumped into soups or roasted as a crunchy snack. And dry lentils cook quickly, so in about 20 min­utes, you can have a pro­tein-rich meat sub­sti­tute, no pre-soak­ing re­quired.
