Eating couscous provides you with a good source of lean, vegetarian protein. Choosing lean protein sources helps ensure you're meeting your daily protein needs without consuming excess fat. The fiber content in couscous is beneficial for weight management because it absorbs water and swells in your digestive tract helping you feel full. The health benefits of chicken include its good supply of protein content, the supply of essential vitamins and minerals, cholesterol control and blood pressure control, and the nuts in it are rich in energy, protein packed with antioxidants and much discussed omega-3 fatty acids.
