Lentils are an excellent source of B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. They're also a great source of plant-based protein and fiber.
But lentils also contain lectins—a protein in certain plants like nightshades and legumes that has been linked to inflammation and upset stomach. It's one of the reasons why people with Nightshade sensitivities steer clear of beans and legumes. Serves 2
WHAT YOU NEED

I’m a holistic nutritionist and I transform health for a living. I work with adults who are overwhelmed and struggling with a desire to get healthy. They just want to keep it natural, but don’t know exactly how to do that. I give them the tools and guide them to transform their own health through nutrition and lifestyle adjustments while feeling completely supported, encouraged and motivated throughout their journey.
