Lentils

Sugar and sweets are always fun, may it be breakfast, dessert or a quick snack. Naturally occurring sugars, like in fruits, is always healthy but other processed foods, could be made healthy with organic and healthy ingredients. Here the healthy ingredients we are talking about are “lentils”.

Lentil, an edible pulse is a high protein, high fiber member of legume family. Including lentils in our everyday diet has numerous health benefits as explained by Medical News Today, here:

  • Lentils are an excellent natural source of folate
  • One cup of lentils provides almost half your daily recommended intake of manganese
  • Evidence suggests that lentils protect heart health
  • Lentils are an easy to prepare and versatile ingredient
  • They are also a relatively low-cost ingredient

CAUTION: If one has kidney problems or gout, limit or avoid intake of purine-containing foods such as lentils.

Though lentils may seem bland and boring to some, but they are nutritional powerhouse and we can look for interesting ways to add them to our daily diet. Above all choosing to go organic is not just to support environment, but also to enjoy the natural and chemical free food.

Here’s one of the very interesting organic muffin recipe, a quick breakfast for those who live the hectic, on-the-go lifestyle. With lentils added, it makes a high protein and fiber recipe.
