What do chickpeas taste like?
Chickpeas taste like dirt.
Chickpeas by themselves are not that tasty- they’re typically used as an ingredient in various dishes, rather than eaten on their own (excluding the “supercharged snack” phase of school lunches circa elementary through middle school). Conversely, you can run your fingers along the roof of your mouth after eating chickpea batter and never once smell any dirt. The good news is that if you cook them with spices or use them to make something delicious like hummus or falafel–chances are they’ll be much more appetizing!
Can I buy dried or canned beans at the grocery store?

How does cooked vs. raw affect my health and power of food for weight loss, acne prevention, etc.?
Cooked food is easy to digest and therefore quicker for our bodies to break down. By contrast, raw vegetables will put a strain on the digestive system and may therefore take more effort to break down.
The benefit of eating both: If you can’t or won’t cook your veggies (or don’t like the taste of them cooked), try juicing them instead-and still include some raw foods in your diet; if you’re unable to process enough raw food, juice those as well instead. You’ll consume plenty of nutrients either way!
