9 Big Benefits of these Tiny Beans
1. Low Cost:
Just 20-30 cents will you buy one cup of lentils which can supply 1/3 of the daily protein requirement for a 150-pound adult, plus a truckload of other nutrients.
2. High Protein:
Lentils have the highest level of protein by weight of any plant-based food.
3. High Nutrition:
Lentils are the mightiest of the beans. If beans are good for you, then lentils — the smallest of the beans — are GREAT for you. In general the smaller the seed, the more nutrition a food has by weight or volume.
4. Low in Fat and Sodium
5. Most Alkaline of all Protein Sources
6. Easy to Digest and Cook:
Compared to many other beans they are much faster to cook and easier to digest. This is why they have been the mainstay of many cultures for centuries.
