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. They’re also a great source of iron, a mineral that is sometimes lacking in vegetarian diets.
