Lentil Trio | An energy superstar
A combination of organic red, green and black lentils is a unique blend of flavors and nutrients.
Lentil seeds are one of the oldest food crops – first cultivated in the Middle East and tracing back 9,500 to 13,000 years. High in fiber and a good source of protein, these versatile legumes are packed with minerals, and virtually fat-free. Eat them sprouted or spiced; either way, you’ll find them excellent in salads. They also make great soups and are perfect for purees, such as Indian dal.
Lentils are not only the quintessential comfort food; they are a nutrition powerhouse. The pigment in lentils acts like an antioxidant and helps protect against heart disease, cancer, and the aging process in general.
