FOXTAIL Millet Salad With Chickpeas

Millets benefit health in more ways than one.
They are loaded with fiber, essential minerals, and proteins .
Since they are rich in dietary fiber, they are an excellent food for your gut. That also means millets are a digestive aid.
Whether you are suffering from cardiovascular disease or are unable to control your blood sugar spikes, millets can be your go-to ingredient as part of a balanced diet.
Did I say millets for weight loss diet are a boon?
Well, they are deficient in calories. What makes you obese in most cases is an overload of calories. The excess calories tend to deposit in your body as fat. This is what makes you obese.

Foxtail millet is one of my favorites after ragi or finger millet.
