It's been nice to be back in my kitchen experimenting and trying new recipes and eating them!
Today I have a Lentil Quinoa Taco recipe for ya.
I can see that I will be putting this filling with lettuce for veggie taco salad or filling in leaves instead of tortillas! I love both Lentils and Quinoa.
They have high levels of folate and magnesium.
Stabilize Blood Sugar
Due to their high fiber content, lentils help in regulating blood sugar
by providing steady, slow-burning energy and balancing blood sugar
High in Iron
Lentils are loaded with iron and are a great way to replenish the body's
iron stores, especially for people who don't eat red meat like vegans
Lentils are a great source of B vitamins, most notably folate and niacin
(B3). B vitamins are important for the healthy functioning of the
nervous, digestive, and immune systems.
Lentils are a great cholesterol lowering food due to their high levels of fiber.
Protein makes up 26% of the calories in lentils and they have the third
highest level of protein than any other plant food. It's no wonder that
they're a staple in many parts of the world.
