If you’re trying to eat more protein—and if you’re working out on the reg, you definitely are—you may be finding that hitting your ideal grams is tougher than keeping up with your FitBit. There is a solution, though, and it’s easy, delicious, and even cheap (!): pulses.

The family of superfoods known as pulses—lentils, chickpeas, beans, and dry peas—are so versatile, you’ll never hit that protein fatigue wall. Plus, they’re super high in fiber (four times more than brown rice), iron, and antioxidants.
