Lentils are kind of underrated, no?
They sort of get a bad rap for not being delicious. I don’t know many people that are like, I looooove lentils, but I am starting to really get a soft spot for them.
I mean, that curried lentil soup I made last week on Instagram Live was so good I seriously made it 5 times in about 8 days and I made it for the dinner I co-hosted with Kitchen Table App, too.
High in magnesium and folate, these guys are heart healthy supporting blood flow, moving oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Folate is super important for pregnant ladies because it supports brain development in babies. And they are really high in protien for a plant based food and high in fiber so they are great for digestion, energy, balanced blood sugar and support a healthy weight. They help keep cravings for sugar low as well.
Plus they are freaking cheap. Like dirt cheap.
If you are on a budget skip the pasta and opt for the immensely healthier option of lentils. Just an idea.
