Week Two
One of the hardest parts of getting healthier is taking that first step to make a change, and you’ve already done that by tackling week one. Welcome to week two of your Pulse Pledge Challenge. Last week we encouraged you to add pulses to everyday meals you already enjoy, and this week we’d love to help step up your brunch game. Take a break from artery-clogging bacon and boring bowls of cold cereal—we’ll show you how to swap those out for tasty, healthy lemon poppy seed pancakes that are made with garbanzo bean flour, and smoothies powered by lentils (you’ll only taste the tropical fruits, believe us).  Check out the recipes below for some a.m. inspiration.

How To Cook Beans
After you’ve soaked your beans (see the three different methods in the box to the left), combine 1 cup pre-soaked beans with 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low for 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the bean type. When a bean is fully cooked, the skin is still intact but the bean can easily be smashed between two fingers. Remember, beans expand when they cook, so add warm water as needed during the cooking process to keep beans covered!
