Dietary Fiber

Lentils are just like a magical food. By adding only one cup to your diet you have already covered up to 70% of the recommended daily requirement.
That’s one meal!

  •      Regulating bowel movements
  •      Decreasing risk of getting certain types of cancer
  •      Boosts the digestive system

Lean Protein

Meat is not the only source for lean protein. Beans provide you with a nice dose of proteins just like animal meat.
Cooked lentils give you up to 18g of protein for every cup.
Alongside the proteins, lentils are also low in saturated fat.
What’s more, lentils don’t have any cholesterol, which makes them great substitute to red meat.
Keep in mind that they don’t come with the needed dosage of amino acids. You know, amino acids are needed for completing the protein.
Make sure you mix lentils with grains to get that nice and sweet complete protein.


Folate and Magnesium

Eating more lentils means helping your heart stay protected. It needs this extra form of security to stay away from developing heart diseases.
Lentils are full with magnesium and folate.
This is a healthy combo and reduces the chances of heart attack.
With that being said,
  •      Folate helps protecting the artery walls and reduces the risk of heart attack
  •      Magnesium strengthens up your body making it resistant to diseases and improves the oxygen, nutrients, and blood flow through your body.
Studies also confirm that the lack of magnesium in your body increases the risk of heart attack.
Now, go to the kitchen and cook those tasty lentils!
