Nature of Pulses-Green Gram, Green Peas, Peanuts

Updated on February 28, 2016

Green Gram: Green grams which we call moong are loaded with protein, vitamins and minerals. A very good source of dietary fibers, green grams have cholesterol lowering properties, prevent constipation and keep you feeling full. They have a very low content of sodium and cholesterol. Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K are present in green grams.

Green grams are a healthy food choice when it comes to diabetic patients due to their blood sugar regulating properties. Intake of green grams stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen, all of which are essential for a healthier and flawless skin. To put it simply, green grams contain skin anti-aging properties.

Green Peas: Green peas are excellent veggies that we all love especially kids. These tiny peas have a starchy texture and sweet taste. The phytonutrients in green peas provide antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits. They are extremely low in fats but rich in omega 3 fats. Including green peas as a part of a healthy diet is said to reduce heart problems and protect against stomach cancer.

The unique thing about this vegetable is that it can be combined with any other vegetable to prepare a yummy delicacy. It can be added to pattice, parothas, vegetable pulao and a long list of other dishes.

Peanuts: Nuts have always been associated with health benefits, one such nut is peanut or groundnut which we call moongfali in Hindi. From providing protection against Alzheimer's to keeping your heart healthy, peanuts are capable of doing it all. Comprising a handful of peanuts in your daily diet ensures you get your share of essential fiber, protein, minerals, and plenty of other antioxidants which are nothing but good for your system.

Peanuts do not cost too much unlike other nuts, so they can be easily added to a number of food items. You can even carry a small jar of roasted peanuts to munchin all day. Boiled groundnuts are equally yummy and healthy.
