Lentil for Loss and Running!
Ok it was yum and I'll keep this short and simple!
Lentils are very rich in protein (about 26%), folic acid, and both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Lentils are also very high in Vitamin C and the B vitamins, and contain eight of the essential amino acids. They also contain many trace minerals. Lentils are one of the highest sources of antioxidants found in winter growing legumes. Hear
this Runner Friends....eat your LENTIL!
Lentils for Weight Loss Because insoluble fiber is indigestible and passes through the body virtually intact, it provides few calories. And since the digestive tract can handle only so much bulk at a time, fiber-rich foods are more filling than other foods, so people tend to eat less!!
1 CUP Organic Lentil
2 whole organic carrots
1 stalk of celery
No sodium Chicken bouillon
sea salt & pepper to taste
Boil your lentil for about 45min, drain.
Create your stock with the bouillon (NO MSG either, so important for your health!)
add your celery/carrots
add your cooked lentils, heat and serve.
Season to taste with black pepper and sea salt.
What a QUICK easy soup! and so Dam Good!
