4. Lentil Salad
Lentils are an amazing plant-based source of protein, containing 18 g in 1 cup. In addition to the protein, lentils contain high amounts of iron, folate and manganese.
Plus, they provide over 50% of the recommended daily fiber intake. The fiber in lentils has been found to promote a healthy gut because it feeds the good bacteria in your colon.
Lentil salad is made by mixing cooked lentils with veggies, spices and whatever dressing you desire.
Did you know that if you consume lentils regularly, it may help control diabetes, reduce the risk of heart disease and reduce the risk of some types of cancer?
