According to the latest reports, one of the ways we can save our planet and improve our health is to include more plant-based meals. This doesn’t mean everyone has to go vegan, but it couldn’t hurt to try to cut down a bit on meat and to increase some of the plant-based sources of protein that we have readily available to us. I use a lot of pulses/legumes like chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, butter beans etc in my meals. Not only is this great for adding fibre and reducing the amount of meat the family eats but it’s great for meals on a budget. Tinned beans are absolutely fine and really cheap so using these to bulk up meals is ideal.

These days, they are pretty good quality and the nutritional content is fine too. In fact, frozen vegetables often have a higher vitamin and mineral content than fresh dues to the fact they are snap frozen soon after harvesting.
