i prefer normal green peas over chickpeas. Normal peas don't need soaking and they feel like a great addition to my diet. They have become a staple in my diet in the last months. Recently started experimenting with mung beans. My wife's from India, were they are eaten soaked and raw. Until now, I'm quite positive about them. According to FitDay.com, they are very nutritious.
Whatever you do, don't try doing that with kidney beans...you WILL spend the night throwing up! TRUST ME...I speak from experience! Haha. And I've tried sprouting chickpeas but the smell reminded me of the unfortunate kidney bean experience so they repulsed me and I threw them away immediately...if you smell them and still want to eat them, maybe you will be fine. But I agree with everyone else here...a mango sounds a lot more appetizing!
