information: Lentils have been part of man’s diet for over 4000 years! Remains of lentils have been found in Egyptian tombs and some murals which date back to 1200 BC. Therefore, lentils are said to be one of the first cultivated crops. They are well known globally and are cooked in many different ways depending on which part of the world you are from!
Green lentils (as are most lentils) are low in fat and are high in fibre for good digestive function and also to assist in lowering cholesterol re-absorption. In fact, green lentils contain a more fibre than their friend the red lentil. They are also high in iron (non-heme) and contain magnesium.
Remember that combining lentils with a grain (like rice) gives you complete protein. Also, it's helpful to remember that sprouted lentils contain extra nutrients and are easier to digest due to their enzyme content.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, lentils have a neutral thermal nature and are beneficial to the heart, circulation, stimulate adrenal function and increases vitality of the kidneys.
