Grains, Rice, and Pulses

For a balanced, healthy, and complete diet, it is necessary to incorporate grains, rice, and pulses into your diet. Grains, rice, and pushes provide a wide range of nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, protein, fibre, and several healthy plant compounds. 

Grain foods are the seeds of cereal plants such as wheat, rice, corn(maize), rye, oats, barley, etc. 

Pulses, often also called legumes, are the seeds of leguminous plants. Pulses include lentils, kidney beans, mung beans, soybeans, chickpeas, navy beans, and split peas. 

Foods made from grains and pulses can be bought from stores and consumed. Common foods made from grains include bread, breakfast cereals, pasta, noodles, etc. Foods made from pulses include dal, tofu, lentil soup, hummus, etc. 

Nutritionists and doctors recommend a diet that incorporates foods made with grains, especially whole-grain foods, and pulses. Including grains and pulse-based foods in the diet, such as bread, rice, and breakfast cereal, help lay the foundation for healthy eating. Consumption of foods made from grains and pulses promotes good health. 

Nutritionists and doctors place a high premium on foods made with grains and pulses because they are high in energy, contain no cholesterol, and are low in fat. These foods are a rich source of energy-rich carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, dietary fibre, and minerals. 

In addition, grains and pulses help guard against ailments such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, obesity, etc., especially when they form a part of a composite diet that includes fruits and vegetables. These health benefits come from the dietary fibres, antioxidants, and phytoestrogens in whole grains and pulses. 

Once wrongly thought to be bad for those watching their weight, foods such as bread and breakfast cereals, which are carbohydrate-rich, are considered healthy foods. They are a good base for consuming nutritious, low-fat meals and snacks. Research has shown that a diet high in carbs and low in fat is very effective in promoting weight loss and maintaining weight loss.
