ALL DIFFERENT TYPES OF LENTILS

By: | Tags:

TIP OF THE DAY from our Nutritionist Dr. Tomás Barbosa: Lentils are edible seeds from the legume family. Lentils are often overlooked, even though they’re an inexpensive way of getting a wide range of nutrients. Lentils are made up of over 25% protein, which makes them an excellent meat alternative.

Call our International Call Center (+351) 21 458 85 00 and schedule an appointment for a Nutrition Consultation and you’ll learn a lot about healthy eating.
