Dried Pulses

Pulses are sometimes referred to as 'poor mans meat'. Their history dates back more than 10 thousand years. One theory says the word 'pulse' comes from the word 'puls', which means 'lens-shaped'. This may be because of the shape of the pulse.

Seeds are a good source of energy. For the last million years or so we have eaten every seed that could be collected. They were then seasonal, so we tended to travel to where they were. Now we have the ability to eat and enjoy seeds all year.

A dig in Israel showed that nuts were a major part of out diet about 780,000 years ago. Pitted stones with depressions in them were also found at the site. These were called 'nutting stones' and were used to crack open the hard nuts. When the nutmeat was removed, the shells were used as fuel for the fires. So nuts may have been a staple diet for humans since the beginnings of history.
