Media Noche Tips for a Healthier New You on New Year's Eve

Still feeling that holiday rush? Ever wonder what date/day are we on? And still got tons of task, errands to do? Oh Yes! I do feel you! As I am writing this post. I am actually in panicking mode too!!! Few more hours before we turn the least leaf of 2018 and Welcome 2019 with awesomeness and still here I am thinking of what to prepare on our Media Noche. - New Year's Eve.

As I am running out of ideas, I did some digital file clean up and stumbled into these awesome bunch of food photos that I took during my Thailand Getaway earlier this year featuring the U.S Pulses. As I recall, these dishes that are incorporated with U.S Pulses do taste good and is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Lentil Soup

Sweet Potato & Chickpea Hummus with Salsa Verde Chicken
Black-eyed Beans, Cucumber Mint Salad

Chickpea & Green peas mini cakes.

Pan-seared Salmon, Asparagus & Mashed Green Peas

Chili-con-Carne with Kidney Beans
Looks so yummy, isn't it? Easy Peasy! Incorporating U.S Pulses on a recipe is quite simple and doesn't require too much effort. But just like Indulge resto here, I think a good plating technique will be a plus factor and I bet your family will love this too most especially this festive season.

Pulses really made an impact on me. If you were a reader of my blog for quite a while, I'm pretty sure you were able to know what I mean :) If not, here are some of my blog post related to Pulses.

I'm Trying my very best to include it on my family's diet and sharing to everyone the healthy benefits it may offer.

Now that recipe ideas are coming in, here are some that I'm really interested in.
