World Pulses Day is celebrated every year on the 10th of February to celebrate the importance and health benefits of pulses. It was established by the United Nations in 2019 as part of their International Year of Pulses initiative, which aims to raise awareness about this vital food source.

Pulses are a type of legume, such as beans, peas, lentils and chickpeas. They are nutrient-rich foods that provide many essential vitamins and minerals for our bodies. As well as being incredibly nutritious, they are also inexpensive and easy to prepare – making them an ideal food choice for anyone looking for a healthy meal option!

On World Pulses Day we recognize how important these little powerhouses are in helping us stay healthy and fit. We can learn more about the different types available and explore new recipes so we can make them part of our regular diet. Let’s take some time today to appreciate these delicious yet humble foods!

Pulses are a delicious way to get the vitamins and minerals you need for a healthy diet. They provide us with essential protein, dietary fibre, carbohydrates and some fat – all in an easy-to-prepare meal option. Furthermore, pulses are incredibly versatile and can be used in cuisines from all over the world.

Take some time today to explore the many uses of pulses – from curries and soups, to hummus dips or roasted chickpeas as a crunchy snack! You’ll find that these little legumes are packed full of flavour, nutrition and convenience – making them the perfect choice for a healthy diet.
