Pulses are a great addition to any meal thanks to their nutritional benefits!
  • Full of nutrients - including fiber, protein, folate, potassium and iron.
  • Nutrient rich – they fit into both the vegetable sub-category (legumes) and the protein food group.
  • Delicious –Whether prepared savory or sweet, pulses are very versatile and know how to blend in.
  • Affordable – replacing half the meat with lentils will boost the fiber and nutrient content while reducing the cost.
