  • The United Nations has declared 2016 the International Year of Pulses. Pulses – beans, peas, chickpeas and lentils – have been contributing to global health, nutrition and environment sustainablity for thousands of years. The International Year of Pulses, or IYP, will celebrate the enduring role of pulses in nourishing people around the world.”
  • Did you know that Canada is a global leader in pulse production and export? Did you know how economical and healthy pulse is?
  • This month we will celebrate IYP by share recipes and lots of useful information around pulses, both nutritionally and also environmentally. Plus find out about the 10 Week Challenge!
