    Pulses - half cup habit challenge?

    A different thread had the search for info on using an inventory of pulses on hand and a link was shared to this https://pulses.org/nap/ site. I was interested as well so discovered that site's half-cup habit https://pulses.org/nap/half-cup-habit/ challenge.

    I am going to try to do this and try some of the different recipes as well. 1/2 cup at lunch or supper each day should be doable.

    What I really love about the site is that the number of servings can be varied to suit each situation and the ingredients are automatically adjusted, in the recipes that I explored anyway. I really dislike making something for six servings and having it last all week.
    Anyone want to join me? We can report on our daily or weekly success and include the actual recipe if so inclined.
    Tonight I am having 1/2 C baked beans with added sausage in homemade salsa and fresh cherry tomatoes.

    Why is someone calling these “pulses?” This is not a Latin or botanical name.

    We have perfectly good terms for these: beans and legumes

    Why must we subvert a known language identifyer to something unrecognizable?

    It's a thing: "Pulses are annual crops that yield between one and 12 grains or seeds. The term “pulses” is limited to crops harvested solely as dry grains, which differentiates them from other vegetable crops that are harvested while still green."

    fine. just—FINE!I refuse to use that silly term.

    ...Stomping off to curmudgeon land where I may cook some of the super dooper tasty beans that DH grew last year. Perhaps there are legumes in the mix but that doesnt matter to me, I will just call them “beans.”

    So the field corn that harvested after itís all dried out - is that a pulse too? Is wheat a pulse? Wheat is dry and there are many grains on each head.

    I never use this word ...
