Garbanzo Beans

Most of us eat garbanzo beans in our hummus or salads. What you might not know is that these little round legumes are actually one of the world’s best ingredients to improving gut health and tackling malnutrition. From our mental health to our immune system, garbanzo beans could be key to living a healthy life.


This episode features Jen Hatmaker, an American author, speaker, blogger, and television presenter, in conversation with Vanessa Ridaura, a Senior Program Officer for Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Jen and Vanessa discuss how garbanzo beans and other functional foods show how we can use foods to improve gut and microbiome health as well as tackle malnutrition. This also aids our immune system and our mental health. To increase global health, we need to focus on producing foods locally as there are challenges with accessibility, implementation, and compliance when sourcing food from other continents.


Make Me Care About is produced by Magnificent Noise in partnership with The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
