Yep...summer has begun and today in #chicago its raining and a high of 62° 😳 So I made high fiber lentil, peas and bean soup! Yum 😋 Lentils will keep you feeling energized all day long since they're so full of slow burning complex carbohydrates, fiber, and iron.
Not only is the fiber in lentils amazing for keeping your heart healthy (getting rid of all that bad cholesterol), but it also has other nutrients that do that as well. Two things called folate and magnesium are also proven to be helpful in aiding your heart, according to World's Healthiest Foods. Lentils are very protein-rich for being the size that they are, giving you 36% of your recommended daily protein intake in just one cup.
I just threw in some carrots, onion and celery and ya-da...soup for a week!
