Hi there bitches!! Sorry for not posting for quite some time but I was busy with work and re-doing my house! I'm so happy with my new floor! It looks absolutely stunning! (you're thinking: 'shut up and post some damn recipes') Oke oke..back to food... ;)
I never ever cooked with lentils and I never would have thought that I would prep them one day myself cause I don't think they look very tasty..BUT!! When I was in London a while ago I was sooo inspired by the Indian Cuisine where I had my very first Lentil curry... I thought.. F#CK I want to make this myself too!!! So I will post my recipe how I make my lentil curry, but before I do that scroll down below to find out how SUPER HEALTHY Lentils in fact are!!
5 reasons to start eating Lentils:
Studies have found that people who eat high fiber legumes like lentils have a much reduced risk of heart disease. The high levels of folate and magnesium in lentils also go a long way in protecting the heart.
Stabilize Blood Sugar
Due to their high fiber content, lentils help in regulating blood sugar by providing steady, slow-burning energy and balancing blood sugar levels.
High in Iron Lentils are loaded with iron and are a great way to replenish the body's iron stores, especially for people who don't eat red meat like vegans and vegetarians. B Vitamins
Lentils are a great source of B vitamins, most notably folate and niacin (B3). B vitamins are important for the healthy functioning of the nervous, digestive, and immune systems.
Lentils are a great cholesterol lowering food due to their high levels of fiber.
Protein makes up 26% of the calories in lentils and they have the third highest level of protein than any other plant food. It's no wonder that they're a staple in many parts of the world
