I stumbled upon this as I have been picking up my neighbours newspaper while they have been away. It's The Globe and Mail, a bit too highbrow for me, but it has a Sudoku, so I am not going to turn it down, as I love doing the Sudoku's; keep's the brain ticking over.
Anyhoo, I digress. In Wednesday's paper there was an article about this "newest" food trend. I read the article with interest, as I don't mind pulses; I don't use them much but with the price of food increasing by the second they are a good cheap alternate to some other foods. Plus they are good for you. It also helps that The UN had declared 2016 The International Year of the Pulses.
Not only is there an article in the Globe and Mail, but CBC News has it's own article here. Canadian Chef Michael Smith is spearheading the campaign, at least in Canada, for us all to eat more pulses, and there is even a website for us to sign up to pledge we will eat half a cup of pulses per week for ten weeks. www.pulsepledge.com I must say after looking around the site there are some yummy recipes on there that pretty easy to make. One of my favourites and one I think I may make next week was Bean Lasagna.
