The reader will learn how to balance meals and follow good cooking practices that preserve the heart-friendly nutrients. This book offers simplified ways of cooking legumes at home to wean off canned or processed beans.
The book promotes the consumption of a variety of legumes for their untapped health benefits that can boost one’s efforts to lose weight, or improve blood sugar and blood pressure, relieve constipation, etc.
Legumes are great for any pantry and more importantly for the environment as well. They pair well with non-vegetarian foods such as meat, poultry, seafood, etc. that can help people transition to including more plant-based protein in their diet.
The recipe repertoire ranges from delicious kebabs and patties to flatbreads and desserts, from protein-packed smoothies and fiberful breakfast recipes to lip-smacking main course stews and salads. Each recipe comes with nutrient profile and food pairing ideas, so that the reader can accommodate it into his/her meal plans and preferences.
I hope to empower the reader with ways to apply key nutrition information, good cooking practices, and meal planning on a daily basis to promote long-term health.
