LENTILS

Seamless pattern of green organic lentils.

Lentils have been cultivated for thousands of years, since the Bronze Age but they do not grow wild. They are legumes, and their protein content is second only to soybeans and contains as much protein as many muscle types of meat.

Therapeutic Value of Lentils

Lentils neutralize muscle acids in the body and are especially good for the heart. They help build the glands and blood, and may be used with a variety of vegetables and grains in soups to provide a rich supply of minerals for nearly every organ, gland, and tissue in the body.

Lentils

They make a hearty, filling soup. When preparing them, simmer for one-and-a-half to two hours.
