Couscous is a traditional food from Northern African cultures.  It helps to prevent bacterial and viral infections, as well as maintain a healthy heart. Like other legumes, chickpeas are prized for their high protein and fiber content, and also contain several key vitamins and minerals known to benefit human health which include controlling blood glucose levels, and the vitamin and mineral content takes care of the bone health.  Swiss chard is a nutrient-dense vegetable that contains a wide range of phytonutrients that have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
