This is a cheap, delicious and healthy meal. Lentils help to reduce blood cholesterol since they contain high levels of soluble fibre. The latter can aid digestion and prevent constipation. The fiber in lentils also helps to slow down digestion and stabilize blood sugar. This also increases the steady, slow-burning energy due to its fibre and complex carbohydrates. They are also an excellent source of plant-based protein. Serve with rice or steamed vegetables.
