TIPS ON HOW TO STAY SKINNY DURING THE HOLIDAYS
It is easy to improve the health of holiday meals without sacrificing flavor by just adding pulses to recipes. Pulses are the versatile group of superfoods most people know as chickpeas, lentils, dry peas and beans. Just adding one half-cup serving of pulses to a diet three times per week helps maintain a healthy balance during the holidays and reach the recommended dietary fiber intake. They are hearty and delicious, and high in plant-based protein, making them perfect for adding to holiday sides, stuffing, salads, and more. Plus, they are gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan, making them a great meal option for guests with dietary restrictions. Check out delicious recipes like the Vegan Green Bean Casserole with Creamy Chickpea Sauce at Pulses.org.
