For those into healthy eating, this article is a useful resource. I quite like lentils, for example.

Pulses, including beans, lentils and peas, are easy to cook, delicious and cheap. What’s more they’re incredibly good for you, says Dr Rupy Aujla.

At a time when food budgets are pushed, many of us are trying to find ways to keep costs down while still getting all the nutrients (and flavour) we need. Pulses are a great way to do this, says Aujla.

Interesting to learn pulses have all of the nine essential amino acids. That's often the downfall of vegans, to get all of the essential amino acids in their diet.

When combined with grains in a meal, pulses can provide a ‘complete protein’, which means you get all nine essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) your body needs. For example, wheat is low in the amino acid lysine, but beans are high in it, so you can serve them together for a complete protein
