World Pulses Day is an opportunity to share the nutritional benefits of pulses as part of the sustainable food production, with the aim of optimizing food security and nutrition. Without a doubt, beans are good for people and the planet! A powerful superfood while also playing a critical role in sustainable food production and the US Dry Bean Council is able to see that.

Without a doubt, becoming a mother has changed me in many different aspects. For one thing, I cherish culture and traditions more than ever before. Fortunately and unfortunately, I live out of my home country. That’s why, I do my best to include as much of my culture into everyday life. I’ve found that cooking is one of the easiest ways to include as much of Mexico into our daily lives in California. For one thing, Camilla, my toddler, absolutely loves to eat! By now, I’ve learned that elaborate meals are the way to go with her. As you can imagine, I don’t always have the time to prepare the dishes she loves the most. That’s why, I tend to opt for dishes that will last me a few meals and are rich in protein. For instance, beans have become a go to as they can be served as enmoladas, bean and cheese burritos, and charro beans, which is today’s recipe. Most importantly, eating beans can help manage sugar levels, increase energy, and even help prevent certain cancers.
