Why I like this meal
This is a fantastic meal that will keep you full until dinner. Lentils are a great source of vegan protein, and also fibre which feeds you gut microbes.
I tend to make this lunch once a week. I do enjoy eating bread as well sometimes, but I try not to eat toast every day for lunch.
Aim for 30
Variety in our diet helps to improve our immune system and better support our beneficial gut bacteria. Did you know 30 different plant foods a week is a good goal for gut health?
So if we’re eating the same things every day for lunch, then we’re missing an opportunity to build a diverse range of vegetables, fibre and protein.
