10-minute pita pizzas… say no more!
These take five minutes to assemble, are loaded with veggies and contain a balance of nutrients that will keep you feeling full and nourished all afternoon.
No meat, no problem! You don’t have to be a vegetarian to love these single-serving pizzas.
Topped with PULSES, these a good source of fiber and plant-based protein which means staying full, LONGER. Split peas, lentils, chickpeas & beans also contain prebiotic fibers for gut health and are devoid of saturated fat (heart-healthy).
Other reasons to love pulses:
Weight management: rich in protein and fiber and low in fat, these help you feel fuller, longer and may reduce overall daily caloric intake,
Complex carbs=blood sugar regulation: no post-meal crash here! Pulses are complex carbohydrates which take longer to break down compared to simple sugar carbohydrates. The result: longer-lasting energy.
Heart health: pulses contain fiber which research suggests can help lower blood cholesterol, a risk factor for heart disease.
I’ve partnered with USA and Canada Pulses to promote the #HalfCupHabit: 1/2 cup pulses, 3x/week. Throw them into a salad or pasta, onto a pizza or even dessert (hello, chickpea blondies!).
