Lentils are a packed nutrient dense food that don’t get all the praise they should be given. They are incredibly high in dietary fibres, both insoluble and soluble. Working towards bulking toxins and waste throughout the system, decreasing constipation, allowing for proper elimination, balancing blood sugar and cholesterol levels, as well as supporting the healing process of a number of digestive issues. Lentils are high in necessary macro and micro nutrients such as iron, B-vitamins, magnesium and protein. The high fiber and protein content helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and keep one feeling fuller for longer, eliminating unnecessary snacking throughout the day.
