Living Healthy by Loving Lentils

Lentils intimidate some of us.  (I thought I was supposed to rinse them multiple times, let them soak for days, serve them only in India, or keep them safely repressed in the food storage area of the basement.)

Nope.  Lentils, I have learned, should be raised from their unfortunate low spot on the totem pole of first-choice things we want to eat for lunch.

Why? Because lentils are fantastic.  They are mild and versatile, filling, easy to use, inexpensive, and healthy– they’re loaded with protein, iron, zinc, and biotin.

There are different types of legumes that go by the name of lentils: there are brown/Spanish lentils, petite golden lentils, French/green lentils, small, medium, and large green lentils,  black/Beluga lentils, yellow/tan lentils, red lentils, Macachiados (big Mexican yellow lentils) –and the list goes on.

The best news is that lentils are so easy to cook!  Unlike other legumes, there’s no soaking, no boiling, and no long prep times required.

Just simmer lentils for 15 minutes– that’s the whole uncomplicated recipe for basic lentils.  And you are done:  they’re ready to eat.

Lentils are legendary for versatility.  They can star in anyting from facial scrubs to meat-less meatloaf to coconut soup to lentil cookies.

These yummy little pleasers are one of the most healthy diet choices on planet earth.  They’re totally fat free, totally cholesterol-free, extremely high in fiber and high in protein.  (10 grams per 1/4 cup serving).  Amazing little pods!
