How to Introduce Water Lentils Into Any Diet
Nowadays there are hundreds of different diets, Atkins, South Beach, autoimmune paleo, keto, anti-inflammatory, alkaline, just to name a few! Each diet comes with its own set of rules and restrictions. For some fruit is unlimited, others they are strictly prohibited. What can be frustrating for most is that these diets are not one size fits all. A particular way of eating may or may not work depending on your own body and genetic make-up. This is why your coworker lost 30 pounds on keto and you track every carbohydrate and the weight still won’t budge. Working with a qualified dietitian or nutritionist is the best way to identify how your body breaks down certain foods and which will be most supportive to your health-related goals.
At the end of the day, it is important to understand that humans in general require ample vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, and antioxidants no matter what diet they are on. Our cells require specific tools to thrive and without them they cannot function at full capacity. So, no matter what diet you are on, make sure you are reaching at least the Recommended Daily Allowance for each vitamin and mineral each day. Unfortunately, this can be hard on more restrictive diets like keto, which is where supplements come into play.
Water Lentil Superfood, unlike most dietary supplements, can be used on virtually any diet. It is free of any additives, sugars, and preservatives. Additionally, it is a flowering plant, so it is free of lectins, phytates, and gluten. Water lentils also contain a complete amino acid profile, which means they contain all nine essential amino acids!
