Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, or a meat-loving carnivore, lentils are a great source of plant-based protein with a whopping 18 grams per cup. Even better, they offer your body 40 grams of slow-digesting carbohydrates to keep you energized and fueled to tackle your workouts and also help stave off unhealthy cravings later. As if that wasn’t good enough, they’re also inexpensive and could help balance out your grocery bill by supplementing some of the more expensive meats. Lentils are fairly easy to add into your meal rotation, just mix in with rice or add into a salad for a protein boost.
