After you pop a prenatal, pop some chickpeas into the air fryer for the perfect pregnancy snack. “Folate is one of the top recommended nutrients for a healthy pregnancy, as it supports neural tube development,” notes Celebrity Chef and Certified Nutritionist Serena Poon. “One cup of canned chickpeas contains approximately18% of the recommended daily intake for pregnant women. Chickpeas are also a good source of choline, which is crucial for healthy brain development in fetuses,” she says.


A garbanzo bean glow up? Yes, please! “Chickpeas are a great source of essential fatty acids that are known to benefit skin health” says Poon. “They also contain beta carotene (about 3% of the RDI), which can help protect skin cells from free radicals and UV rays.”
