SUPERFOOD // CHICKPEAS
Chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) combine complex carbs to fuel your brain and protein to keep you alert. They’re also a great source of magnesium, believed to be the go-to mineral for controlling stress and promoting calmness. If you don’t get enough magnesium in your diet, you’re likely to feel irritable and stressed, notes the University of Maryland Medical Center. Try this Golden Hummus Recipe as a step to fuel your brain.
