Lentil's are known to be easily digestible, low in calorie but high in protein which makes it an "must-have" when looking for energy, gut-health and weight-loss.

This is an easy recipe that combines the healing powers of kale with the anti-oxidative effects of lentils. Make the lentils fresh or open up a container. And if it's a container you choose, watch the sodium count, sometimes it's just not worth the convenience when looking for longevity.
