Eating a healthy well-rounded diet is one of the best ways to keep your body fit, your immune system strong, and to live a long and healthy life. Lentils are one of the healthiest legumes, as well as one of the healthiest foods you can eat.
Lentils are a plant-based legume, originally growing in a pod. Lentils are packed with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. One cup of lentils contains about 230 calories. Lentils contain vitamins including folate, manganese, copper, iron, and thiamine. They also contain protein and dietary fiber.
Lentils have been known to have medicinal properties as well. They can lower blood pressure, help with digestive issues, protect your heart, help fight diabetes, and strengthen your bones. Lentils also contain polyphenols, which fight off harmful agents in the body like cancer, heart disease, and ultraviolet rays.
Lentils are easy to add to your everyday diet. They are great incorporated into Indian and Thai dishes, as well as paired with lean meats. Lentils can be seasoned to taste so they are delicious any way make them. You should always talk to your doctor before incorporating a new food into your diet.
