Free Healthy Meal & Exercise Plans Celebrate American Heart Month & World Pulses Day 

February 6, 2024

The Northern Pulse Growers Association (NPGA) invites you to participate in their 2-week healthy meal & exercise plans to celebrate American Heart Month & World Pulses Day.

The NPGA is teaming up with Nourish Move Love (NML) & The Real Food Dietitians (RFD) to create a FREE 2–week exercise plan and 2-week meal plan that will run from February 5 - 16. The meal plan also includes a shopping list each week (to make life easier), and all workouts are available on YouTube.  

February is American Heart Month - a month that is dedicated to raising awareness of the dangers of heart disease as well as promoting the importance of prioritizing heart health. February 10th also happens to be World Pulses Day. World Pulses Day was declared by the United Nations to encourage people around the globe to make these nutrient abundant, environmentally friendly crops part of their daily life.  

Research shows that regularly eating pulses can lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, and help to maintain a healthy body weight, which all promote heart health. Daily exercise can also lower your risk of getting heart disease - simply by moving more. 

The beauty of both plans is that it can be started and repeated anytime - you do what works best with your schedule. The links will continue to be live on our website even after the challenge ends on Feb. 16th  

We hope these plans encourage you to move more in your own home, all while providing you with delicious pulse recipes that can be shared with the family. Be sure to tag us in any social media posts and let us know if you'd like to see similar challenges in the future!
