Why is couscous so healthy?
Couscous salad is not only delicious as hell, but also healthy. 100 grams of couscous provides eleven grams of healthy plant protein, covering almost 20 percent of the daily protein requirement. In addition, with only 1.8 grams of fat per 100 grams, couscous is extremely low in fat but provides valuable carbohydrates. Couscous also contains plenty of folic acid and B vitamins. It contributes to thinking and gives strength to sports.
