Lentils are our chosen legumes due to their vast health benefits and easy meal preparation.
Lentils are plant protein rockstars! Lentils are high in protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates while low in fat and calories. They are also amazing sources of other vital minerals and nutrients, including potassium, folate, iron, and manganese.
According to USA Dry Peas, Lentils & Chickpeas Association, lentils also contain essential nutrients such as iron, folic acid, and dietary fiber. In a ¼ cup serving of cooked lentils, you get 130 calories, only five of them from fat. The serving contains less than a single gram of fat. Lentils have no sodium and no sugar, and the serving size listed above provides you with 11g of dietary fiber and 8g of protein.
A high-fiber diet benefits weight loss, decreases Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT), and improves cholesterol.
