It’s important to eat plenty of fiber and protein if you want to maintain a healthy weight.

If you’re looking for the perfect protein and fiber-rich lunch, look no further than this turkey and spicy hummus club. Turkey and chickpeas are both great sources of protein, and chickpeas and whole-wheat bread are great sources of fiber.
