Lentils Help You Lose Weight!

Lentils are my favorite legume by far -- I just love their creamy taste. So you can imagine I was more than thrilled when I read the good news on lentils.

An Australian review reports that eating foods like lentils with a long, gentle release of sugar -- a low-glycemic index -- may help people lose weight. So fire up the stove and cook up some yummy lentil soup.

Red Lentils are also tridoshic and are therefore very important in an Ayurvedic diet.

Lentils are awesome! I make a great curried carrot & lentil soup using red lentils. Yummy!

I absolutely LOVE lentils, they're tasty and easier to cook than other beans. And I'm not surprised they help with weight loss, all that fiber and protein is really filling.
