Dear Garfield
Chickpeas like all members of the legume family are good sources of plant protein, but also contain some carbs and plenty of fibre. They are an excellent weightloss food because they are low in fat, don't contain any cholesterol and the high fibre content helps to lower the energy they contain. You can certainly add them to salads.
