So grains and pulses are the new super food
Luckily for us they are also some of the cheapest food you can buy!!
Dried or tinned lentils, beans and pulses are incredibly cheap and what’s more, they are really good at filling you up. They go great with salads, chillies and wraps. This summer I have been using my left over Sunday lunch with some pulses and grains to make a great dinner on Monday which has continued in various forms until Wednesday.
I have also added some tomatoes, olives and avocados, sprinkled some balsamic vinegar and olive oil. If you want some extra protein, mix in some diced tuna or Salmon alternatively some diced chicken or cooked mince. Tastes delicious, keeps you fuller for longer and is as cheap as (and better for you than) chips!!!!
I have been eating this regularly for the last two weeks in preparation for my holiday and noticed that I am also losing weight as it is keeping me fuller for longer and replacing some of the carbs I’d usually be eating. Helping to save money and lose weight what could be better!!!
