Chickpeas are a natural source of plant protein. They contain high amounts of dietary fibre, both soluble and insoluble, which helps to lower the bad cholesterol in the body and helps promote a healthy digestive system.
Almond butter certainly is a heart healthy food because of its fibre and healthy fat content. Almond butter is an excellent source of monounsaturated fats which provide cardiovascular benefits by helping to improve blood cholesterol levels as well as dietary fibre which helps to lower cholesterol levels in the body. It is also a good source of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and vitamin E, which contribute to maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels, healthy bones and protecting cells from oxidative stress.
The Organic dark chocolate adds the perfect balance of sweetness and contains important phytonutrients which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
