Lentils provide the body with much-needed fuel, especially if you are starting out a new workout regime for the new year. They also can help aid in weight loss due to the high fiber content, which helps keep you feeling full longer. The key vitamins and minerals that lentils provide the body with are potassium, folate, iron, and manganese.
