5 #Lentil #recipes to say goodbye to the International Year of Pulses #IYP2016 @pulsecanada @LovePulses @CdnLentils

Well deserved kudos to the United Nations for designating 2016 and the International Year of Pulses. Canada is the top grower of pulses inΒ the world. Pulses are the dried seeds of peas, beans, chickpeas and lentils. They are nutritional powerhouses.

The recipes in this little five video series above are beautifully presented by Canadian Lentils. Take a look and you’ll be inspired toΒ intersperseΒ a few of these recipes in your holiday meal-planning. While most Canadians gain six pounds between Thanksgiving and New Years Day you can pause, take your pulses, avoid the “holiday six” and spring into 2017 eating healthfully and supporting thousands of Canadian pulse farmers as you do so.
