Legumes - Deepstash


Legumes are a category of vegetable and include items such as green peas, beans, chickpeas, and lentils.

According to the American Diabetes Association, regular intake of legumes can lower your risk of type 2 diabetes and improve blood glucose control for those who have already developed this disease.
