Chickpeas: For Cleansing and Calming
“Chickpeas and beans are so good in general. People worry that beans give them gas, and sure, they’ll make you feel gassy and nasty for a while, but once you’re body is cleansed you won’t feel that anymore. They’re loaded with protein and calming for the mind. If you’re a vegetarian with anxiety, you need your falafel,” says Craig, whose favorite neighborhood spot for falafel and chickpea salad is Oasis (161 N 7th Street, Williamsburg).
