He says it has all of the essential proteins and nutrients for weight gain and cell formation. Then he suggests almonds, which have all of the necessary proteins and vitamins for bone health. Chickpeas are the next ingredient he recommends because they’re high in iron and can help you feel more energised. Chickpeas can also be used to increase stamina in pre-workout drinks, according to him.
