PULSE INNOVATION MIAMI
Pulses (dried beans) —they’re so small, so basic, yet they inspire in me such passion. Beans are nature’s little powerhouses of plant-based protein, they’re cheap, sustaining and sustainable, low carbon, low water, high yield. Beans are among the first crops we cultivated — score one for mankind.
I could go on for eons about pulses, but at least I’ve got 2016, a whole year designated by the United Nations as the International Year of Pulses. The whole world’s celebrating with pulse feasts, calls to action and pulse-centric events like – ta-da – Pulse Innovation Miami.
October 22nd 2016, the American Pulse Association presents this edible exploration of pulses, from how they sustain the planet and you to how they rock a kitchen. It’s like the Olympics for Beans. And I get to be part of it. I’ve been kind of starstruck, connecting with world-class pulse pros in sustainability, wellness and food innovation. Our passion for and knowledge of pulses is vast. Space, however, is limited and tickets are going like hot falafel.
Because the future of food is beans.
