Beans & Legumes
Are you looking for an alternative to meat? Legumes (or pulses) are rich in dietary fibre and complex carbohydrates. These are edible seeds, such as dried beans, lentils, dried peas, soybeans, etc. They can compensate for the cessation of meat consumption, as they provide protein, but they must be combined with cereals to obtain all essential amino acids. In addition, legumes are low in fat (except peanuts). Thanks to them, intestinal transit is improved and they bring a feeling of satiety. They have a low glycemic index that allows people with diabetes or overweight to consume them and are a source of energy. They provide B vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium and selenium. Finally, they have great nutritional qualities, they provide trace elements, essential fatty acids and proteins.
