Lentils are a tasty staple in my diet. They are so versatile and are bursting with health-giving nutrients.
They are over 25% protein so are a great meat alternative, they are naturally low in fat and are full of that all-important fibre to support healthy gut bacteria!
Lentils provide fantastic amounts of all the B vitamins, folate, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, and manganese.
Lentils also contain important plant Phytochemicals that have been proven to be beneficial against chronic diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes, Polyphenols in particular, have strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory anti-cancer and neuroprotective benefits.
