Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips

We know how good pulses eg navy beans and lentils, are for us. They provide a great source of soluble fibre which helps lower unhealthy ‘LDL’ cholesterol and is also good for bowel health. Experiment with pulses in your cooking and you will love their versatile nature as an ingredient, even in desserts.
