Why Lentil?

here & there tips

From I was a teen, I fell in love with eating lentil soup. As I grew up I came to know and learn about its benefits, which I want to share with you all!

Mind, Body, Green site mentioned 7 of the health benefits that lentil has:

1. Lower Cholesterol
2. Heart Health
3. Digestive Health
4. Stabilized Blood Sugar
5. Good Protein Source
6. Increases Energy
7. Weight Loss
According to Whole Living website, lentil is in the power foods list, that it has great amount of fiber in it, as well as blood-fortifying iron – especially when paired with a food containing vitamin C
Also Discovery, Fit and Health mentions that lentil is exceptionally high in folic acid, also a good source of magnesium.
Interesting enough another site called 3 fat chicks listed the minerals and vitamins that lentils have, they are as following, according to the site:
Calcium, Folic acid (vitamin B9), Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Thiamine (vitamin B1), Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin E
If all that doesn’t make you love lentil more, or start loving it if you were not a fan I don’t know what will!! unless you are allergic
Some lentil recipes will be added soon 😉
