But even more important, you’re missing out on a delicious way to boost your vision.
Chickpeas are packed with zinc, a mineral that helps support the immune system and combat the inflammation that can lead to age-related macular degeneration—one of the leading causes of vision loss worldwide.
When you dive a fork into this spicy curry you’ll get a bold, flavorful meal that’s comforting and filling. And P.S., the leftovers only improve overnight in the fridge. Now that’s something we can all dig into.
