Tip from Chantal:

Lentil soup is high in fibre and iron and contributes to optimum health

Did you know that lentils are the forgotten superfood?

Lentil soup is not only easy to make, it’s also great for keeping you healthy. Lentils are extremely high in magnesium, folic acid, iron and fibre. Fibre improves digestion and prevents spikes in your blood sugar levels. This means that after eating lentil soup, you’ll feel full for longer and won’t crave sugary foods.
