Why This Creamy Chickpea and Avocado Toast is Healthy:

Avocado has 4 grams of protein and more potassium than a banana and is loaded with healthy fat to help your body learn to burn fat as fuel.

Why It Works For Weight Loss:

This meal is filled with fiber. Avocado has 13 grams of fiber and 2 tablespoons of chickpeas have 4.4 grams of fiber, so with all that fiber and healthy fat (from the avocado) you’ll feel full longer.
