Here are three reasons to love pulses:
- Pulses are an affordable low-fat source of protein that contributes to good nutrition and health.
- Pulses are easy to cook with and there are simple ways you can add them to your diet: Add a half a cup or more of your favourite cooked pulses into any salad or soup; add cooked lentils or black beans to your pasta sauce; toss a handful of white beans in your smoothie or try roasted chickpeas as an alternative to salty snacks.
- Cooked pulses can be pureed. Use pulse puree in baked goods, or, as a tasty dip, spread, sauce or soup base.
Fruits are the original dessert; it's in our DNA to crave their natural sweetness. Long before we were tempted with high-fructose corn syrup and artificial flavours, people refreshed themselves with juicy, fresh fruits.
Three words: Candied Vegan Bacon! The taste of candied vegan bacon infused with RicherEarth Vegan Eats’ Herbed Poppyseed Dressing will for sure bring out your happy! Toss with fresh, whole ingredients such as baby spinach, colourful radish, and chives for a delicious salad that will satisfy on every level.
Salads offer something rare in modern life: They contain ingredients you can recognize and pronounce. As long as you stick with produce and all natural toppings, you can create anything from and appetizer to an entrée without including a single mysterious additive in the meal.
