Banza Chickpea Pasta Mac & Cheese
Protein per 2.5-ounce serving: 18 grams
With twice the protein and four times the fiber of the leading blue box brand, Banza’s spankin’ new chickpea-based mac and cheese might just be the only comfort food on the market that can help your muscles grow. It is a touch high in sodium (620 – 720 mg/2.5 oz.), so if you’re worried about high blood pressure or bloat, stick with the brand’s plain noodles, which are made with a blend of chickpeas, tapioca, and pea protein—and pack 14 grams of protein per serving. They taste great mixed with pesto, sautéed tomatoes and chicken for an even bigger protein payoff.
