Pulses are the nutrient-packed, dry, edible seeds of beans, lentils, chickpeas and peas, and they’re being used for just about everything, thanks to their versatility in recipes and their nutritional profile: They’re a plant-based source of both protein and fiber, they are full of phytonutrients and they provide key vitamins and minerals that are linked to helping reduce your risk of chronic disease (those vitamins and minerals include B-vitamins, potassium, magnesium and iron).


I know I know another food trend article but this one has some stuff I’ve never heard of…. like a “Pulse”… so enlighten yourself and your diet people… or not… either or.
