Love your lentils
Lentils are loaded with fiber and protein, making them a fantastic food for controlling blood sugar and helping you manage your waistline (they also reduce your cholesterol). Rinse canned varieties to lower your salt intake. If you’d prefer to process them yourself, soak and cook a bunch at once, divvy them up (a typical can holds a little more than two cups of lentils) and pop them in the freezer. Thaw and add them to stews and soups, or bake with them – lentil cake is delish.
