Did you know most Australians consume less than one third of a serve of legumes a week?

Legumes such as beans, lentils, and peas are recommended as an important part of a healthy diet for all Australians.

While they may be small in size, legumes are nutrient powerhouses, providing protein, dietary fibre, B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and more! Even a quarter cup of legumes a day can have serious health benefits, including a reduced risk of chronic diseases.

To celebrate the goodness of legumes, the GLNC are celebrating Pulses Week from the 12th to the 18th of February. We’re working with not-for-profit organisations, dietitians, nutritionists and food manufacturers to encourage Aussies to love their legumes.
