World Pulses Day

One of the many things that I have learned from the Church of Perpetual Life is that eating legumes is good for you.  The next thing that I learned was what legumes are: beans, lentils, and peas.  More recently I learned that pulses are the edible seeds of legumes.

The United Nations promotes the consumption of pulses by observing World Pulses Day.  They point out that pulses are better for the consumer, the economy, and the environment.  I would add World Pulses Day to my list of Optihumanist Holidays except that it is too close to Darwin Day.

In addition to skipping supper, one of the other changes that I have made to my diet recently is to eat canned beans for breakfast.  I avoid baked beans because of the sugar.  My children do not eat beans but I am hoping to ease them into it.
