    Question Chickpeas Or Kidney Beans?

    Both of these are really good and cheap sources of Rich Carbs and Proteins and almost no fat (boiled without salt).

    Personally I think Kidney beans are much better because they provide very few calories and good amount of proteins.

    And my question is that what do you guys think about Chickpeas? I am thinking to add little more variety to my diet.

    According to my research Chickpeas have more proteins/carbs and little more fat too than Kidney beans but Im concerned as they give almost 5 times more calories than kidney beans so might disturb your calorie intake.


    P.S: Please dont suggest Soy beans, they are not available in my country.

    lol first off chickpeas don't give 5x the calories. It's not even 2x the calories.

    Chickpeas are the best legume but they are both fine. Eat both.
    The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.

    this.

    Fava beans have a bit more protein than either but I like black beans the best. All legumes are tasty IMO so I eat them all for variety.

    1. That's too bad.

    2. And you believe "what we like", and "what's required"...to be mutually exclusive? That's too bad, as well.

    This. Why the hell would anyone design a "lifestyle"/diet based on things they don't like to eat?
    Bacon is my favorite number in the entire alphabet.
