There are so many great reasons to eat legumes. Sprouting your legumes adds a bunch more. Legumes, including Chickpeas, beans and lentils, are loaded with protein and other nutrients. They are awesome added to your diet. I always start with dried legumes and prepare them myself, I normally soak, activate and then boil them but often I prefer them sprouted. There are some great tips and tricks to preparing and storing legumes so that you will always have them at hand.
Tip 1 – Plan
The first tip to eating at home and cooking regularly is to plan. A few minutes planning each day will take the pressure off cooking at home, make it a lot quicker and cuts the amount of taking away you eat, saving you thousands of dollars every year. Cooking at home can be fun and easy and can be done as a family.
I lot of people shy away from using dried legumes because of the myth that they are difficult to prepare. They are not. Really simple.
