Legumes, also called beans, come from the Fabaceae family, which includes trees, shrubs and grasses whose fruits grow in pods.
Beans can be broken down into three broad categories: lentils (green, red, black, etc.), beans (white, red, black, fava, etc.) and peas (chickpeas, split peas, etc.). In short, there is something to suit all tastes!
Why are we so keen on reintroducing legumes to the modern diet? Because they’re super good! For you, and for the planet.
