I love lentils more then most people. When I used to be Vegan in my early twenties they were a staple in my life and I fell in love with how great they made me feel and how long I stayed full.
Legumes and beans have a great ratio of protein to fiber and complex carbs to keep you full. They burn slowly so its great for a preworkout meal.
I see athletes using white carbs which just burn like paper and are lacking the nutrition to carry you powerfully through the finish line. .
One of my fav combos is adding an egg or two to this lentil salad. Another slow burner.
Fuel yourself well and move your body to keep your mental health on point.
This is always a go to for potlucks and is even more incredible over a bed of arugula.
This is one of my favorite recipes from My New Roots blog and amazing artist/nutritionist Sarah Britton.
The best lentil salad ever
