Pulses: It's not about your heartbeat!

Not many people know about pulses and about their benefits. It’s not about the heartbeat!

It starts with the name: many people refer to them as legumes or beans. Pulses are a subgroup of legumes that are dried, edible, and have low fat content. This includes kidney beans, chickpeas, split peas, lentils. The list could be a very long one, as there are many varieties.
