Lovely Legumes

Have you ever heard of legumes before? Even if you haven’t, you’ve probably eaten them! Legumes are a family of plants that encompass lentils, peas, pulses and beans. What a delicious group of food! There are a number of different types of lentils and they all have a large variety of nutritional benefits. In general, legumes are going to be a great source of fiber. Fiber helps keep your digestion system working its best and helps keep your heart healthy as well. Legumes are also a great source of plant-based protein. Incorporating plant-based protein in place of red meat, even just once per week, is a great way to lower saturated fat intake. One of the best parts about legumes is how affordable they are too; one bag of lentils cost around $2.00 and can make multiple meals for a family of four!
