If you are one of the many people who start off the new year with resolutions to incorporate a healthier diet into your everyday lifestyle, why not considering including a hearty lentil soup into your meal plan?
Soups are a fantastic choice for a healthy diet, providing much-needed warmth during cold winter months, while also filling hungry bellies quickly. Traditionally lower in calories than most meals, soups can be used as a practical and safe way to include vital nutrients while still losing excess, post-holiday weight. Lentil soup, in particular, provides the wise food connoisseur with a high-fiber food staple that provides essential micronutrients such as protein, folate, iron, copper, manganese, and B vitamins. Only providing around 200 kCal of energy per cup of cooked lentils, and containing almost no fat, these nutrient-dense legumes have also been noted to stabilize blood sugar, lower cholesterol levels, and pack a protein punch.
