US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Legumes can be a useful alternative to meat. A study by nutritionists from the University of Pennsylvania is published on MedicalXpress.
Experts note that lentils, chickpeas and peas contain a dumpling and a protein that is not inferior in quality to the protein in meat.
In addition, regular consumption of legumes reduces the risk of developing heart disease and stabilizes blood cholesterol.
“Add a little chickpea to your salad. Use beans as a side dish instead of potatoes and rice. Use them as a main dish instead of meat,” Professor Chris-Etherton advised one of the study’s authors.
He also warned that the human body may respond differently to the use of beans. In order to avoid a feeling of discomfort in the intestines, the nutritionist recommended preparing them by prolonged cooking or stewing.
