Split Red Lentil
Lentils not only slow down complex carbohydrates but also boost your body's energy by replenishing your body's iron stores. Especially for women of childbearing age who are very prone to iron deficiency, increasing (boosting) iron stores with lentils is a great idea because unlike red meat, another source of iron, lentils have no calories or fat.
Lentils are quicker and easier to cook than other dry beans. They quickly absorb great flavors from other foods and condiments and have high nutritional value and are available all year round.
