Pulses are a part of the legume family and common sources include dried beans, lentils, and chickpeas — which are not only versatile, but very affordable as well. Pulses are a great source of plant-based protein, especially for those looking for meatless options. You can create a plant-forward dish by adding to soups, topping salads, or use in place of meat for tacos or burgers.


A source of essential fatty acids and fiber, these seeds can be incorporated into baked goods, or toasted and used as a topping for  salads, soups and sandwiches.
