Take the Pulse Pledge and Win at Dinner

Take the Pulse Pledge and Win at Dinner

Ceri and I have taken the pulse pledge but, if I think about it, we’ve had an unofficial allegiance to pulses for years. Listen, I’m going to be frank. It’s not like my pledge with chocolate or Ceri’s vow to love tortilla chips forever but it’s a pretty loyal union since pulses (chickpeas, lentils, beans and peas) are the secret weapon of a hardworking pantry. Do you know how many times a can of black beans has saved my butt at dinner (please see our black bean veggie burger below)?

Our pledge to eat one meal a week using these nutrition powerhouses was an easy decision, especially this time of year. September’s return to routines has us all running ragged so the notion of leaning on pantry staples is already something we use as a strategy to survive. We encourage you to take the PulsePledge.com too and check out our gallery of recipes geared towards making your meals and snacks (yes, we have a great roasted chickpea snack Scarlett gobbles up) healthier and easier.
