Featured Food – Lentils

Lentils are tiny round legumes that are red, green or black. They taste delicious and are great for you! Not only that, in honour of Earth Day, our Featured Food can be grown locally in Ontario!

They come in handy for meatless meals, because they are chalk full of iron and, combined with a grain, are a complete protein, making them a great meat replacement! They also contain dietary fiber, vitamin B and folate.

For those raw foodies out here, lentils can be sprouted, which can make them even more nutritious, because they develop amino acids!
