    Why Lentils?

    Lentils are a staple food in many countries in Asia, and it is no wonder! These little legumes, have a long shelf life, they are cheap and can be used in various ways, as a stand alone meal, or as a bulking agent to soups.

    Lentils are heart healthy and free from fat, so are the perfect food to incorporate into your diet if you are looking to get healthier, or lose some weight

    Check out this video for more information about the benefits of eating lentils.

    I was blown away with how many health benefits there are in a humble lentil. When I was a child lentils were used in stews by the poor to make it stretch further, who would have thought they were actually eating healthily

    Interesting, I like the way you make us look at the food we eat and view it as a food that benefits our health.

    I had no idea that lentils offered so much health benefits. I’ll certainly be trying some recipes out.

    Love the vlog Louise, I was brought up believing that lentils were for poor families and used in stews to bulk them up and make them stretch further so I’ve never bothered with them but I will definitely have a look at them again
