They’re like the all-in one lentil. Because they are delicious mashed into veggie burgers, as a salad topper, or even blended into soup. Cooked these for 35-45 minutes, one half cup of uncooked brown lentils brings 24g protein, 80 mg calcium 26g fibre, and 4 mg iron, according to the USDA.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
