I tried U.S. Pulses Flexitarian Diet!


Last January, I went to Thailand to try out and experience Pulses. If you’re going to ask me what Pulses are. Pulses are a part of the legume family, we are not aware of it, but we are eating these Pulses. Some common Pulses are Dried peasedible beanslentilssoybeanspeanuts and chickpeas. At first, I had no idea what Pulses are until we were educated back in Thailand. All I know is that those are called vegetables and they are good for you.


I’m glad that I was able to try out U.S. Pulses again, and that it is starting to be known here in the Philippines, and in this vegetarian month, I’m glad to re-introduce U.S. Pulses to everyone for one more time. To be a part of the Pulses fever together with supporting the vegetarian month, you can either choose to be a “Flexitarian” or go with the “Meatless Monday”, where you will have to remove meat from your meals at least one day from your whole week. As for me, going “Flexitarian” is the best, and this is where Pulses comes in. 


“Flexitarian” diet highlights an increased intake of plant-based meals without eliminating meat in our daily meals. The plant-based foods included are lentils, beans, peas, nuts and seeds, all excellent source of protein, and if you can remember, these plant-based foods are what we call Pulses.

Pulses are also called “Superfoods” because they are grain legumes that are very high in protein and fiber, and are low in fat, compared to most other plant foods. Aside from that, they consume less water, so they are environment-friendly, and they help fight obesity and certain diseases, including heart diseases, as these legumes helps reduce high cholesterol. Research also shows that practicing “Flexitarian” diet with healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk of breast cancer and prostate cancer.


Pulses or "Superfoods" are the best option if you are planning to be in good shape and be fit. For everyone just like me who always wants to be fit and be healthy, through running or Zumba or going to the gym, Pulses are the best addition to our diet. I know that those who knew me, even back then, also knows how addicted I am to be anything related to fitness and staying in shape. Eating veggies with fewer meat isn't new to me. It's now that hard compared to what you're thinking. I know that some of you might think that veggie intakes and lesser meat is a no! no! because it wouldn't satisfy you're crumbling hungry tummies. To tell you the truth, that's the whole secret of being fit, learning to discipline yourself when it comes to eating. One must know how to control himself/herself when it comes to choosing the healthy snack. If you don't want a sexy-healthy-beach body, go ahead and eat at your own risk. But if you're up for the challenge, then what are you guys waiting for? Enjoy a delicious and at the same time healthy meal.
