Pulses, Chick Peas and Lentils
Chick peas, pulses and lentils are all super foods - they are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals, and contain extremely low levels of fat and cholesterol.
If you are a vegetarian, or simply a healthy eater, you may well be familiar with this type of food - chick peas, lentils and pulses are generally used to add a healthy boost of protein to stews, soups, salads and curries.
Hummus is actually made from chick peas that have been cooked and ground into a paste, so why not pick up a bag of chick peas today and try making your own version?
These extra healthy foods are a great way to add a little variety to your diet, and if you are looking to lose a little weight then cutting back on meat and introducing your choice of pulses is a great option.
