What we’re eating: Easy lentil salad

by Christina on September 15, 2016

I love finding quick and healthy foods my toddler likes as much as I do.

This is my recent favorite: Trader Joes Lentil-bruschetta salad. You mix one packet of pre-cooked lentils and one container of TJ’s bruschetta sauce (+/- avocado or cucumber or mango or whatever else is in your kitchen) and you’re done!

I make it at least once a week and use it for my toddler’s lunch as well as our dinners… so good.

On bulletproofexec.com food chart, lentils are avoided due to the lectin type. Interesting thoughts from this author – link: (https://www.bulletproofexec.com/revenge-of-the-beans-tomatoes-potatoes-lectins/)

I just started reading his site, and he doe some good primary literature analysis.

great blog!

Hi Anar – nice to hear from you! Curious to hear where you are these days?

Thanks for the thought and link — I follow Dave Asprey’s work and am familiar with some of his thoughts on lentils and lectins, but I also think people have to experiment to figure out what works for them. My body feels good when I eat lentils and I plan to continue them for now. Our family follows a plant-based diet and we are working on trying to find good sources of protein, especially for our growing kids!
