Did you know that legumes had many health benefits? Also called “dried vegetables”, legumes refer to the fruits of podded plants that have been dehydrated by drying. There is a great diversity of legumes grown and consumed around the world. In a video published on Instagram, dietician-nutritionist Julie Chenu, also known on social networks under the nickname @dietetiqueplaisir, revealed an ideal vegan recipe to enjoy the different benefits of dried vegetables.

What are the health benefits of pulses?

Legumes are one of the seven food groups essential for the proper functioning of our body, and more particularly that which we call starchy foods, explains the dietitian. As Health Insurance points out, “starchy foods are essentially made up of carbohydrates. They provide energy which is gradually released in the body and helps to avoid “punches” between meals”. But then, what is special about dried vegetables? Unlike starchy foods like rice or pasta, legumes are a source of protein, which gives them a place of choice in vegan and vegetarian diets, indicates the nutrition expert. They also have many health benefits. In fact, dried vegetables are first of all very rich in fiberswhich helps to “rebalance the entire digestive sphere” according to the dietitian. Additionally, they are an important source of iron, magnesium and calcium. Which gives them an anti-fatigue and anti-stress effect.
