Chickpeas are rich in chloride, fiber, folate, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, protein, vitamin B6, and zinc. Chickpeas may boost energy, may relieve nausea and constipation, are beneficial if you’re a mama with gestational hypertension, and are anecdotally believed to be lactogenic. Chickpeas are a carbohydrate and therefore should be limited if you’re a mama with gestational diabetes (15-30 grams for breakfast, 30-45 grams for lunch and dinner, 15 grams for snacks).
