“This is perhaps my favorite food of them all—I think that everyone should be eating more lentils,” Caspero says. A study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found eating 3/4 cup of lentils every day can help contribute to moderate weight loss. Their high fiber content means you stay full longer after eating and have less cravings. Plus, they’re low fat and cheap to purchase, so they’re a superfood that everyone can enjoy, Caspero points out. Lentils are traditionally used in soup, but Caspero says you can use them anywhere you typically use ground beef, like spaghetti sauce, tacos, and casseroles.
