Dear fellow food-lover,

Happy 2019! Have you heard the news? The Mediterranean Diet is 2019's Best Overall Diet, according to U.S. News & World Report. Pulses make up an important staple of the Mediterranean Diet. These dry peas, beans, lentils, and chickpeas are high in protein and fiber, and they're also affordable, good for the environment, and an easy way to bulk up vegetarian meals.

Pulses are particularly great in soups and stews, adding flavor and texture. You'll find them in Italian, Spanish, Greek, and Middle Eastern recipes throughout the Mediterranean. Warm up this winter with a healthy pulse soup!

T his simple soup is a powerhouse of protein and vegetables. Using chicken sausage cuts down considerably on saturated fat, without compromising on flavor. It’s even better the second day!

This is a great way to use up all those bits and pieces of veggies in your refrigerator. Serve over bulgur, whole grain pasta, or all on its own, and try topping with a little good quality, grated Cheddar.
