Lentils are a nutrient dense food that are high in fiber, low in fat, and high in minerals and protein (digestive health). With protein accounting for 25% of the calories in lentils, they’re an excellent vegetarian protein source.
Lentils are a carbohydrate, but they burn slowly, so they keep you satisfied for longer. Lentils have also been shown to be beneficial to heart health in studies. They also have the additional bonus of being low in calories, with 1 cup of cooked lentils containing just 116 calories (which is roughly the amount per serving of this lentil soup).
