There are so many things you can do with lentil soup: add purple potatoes, use rainbow carrots, add spinach or kale, top with pesto or garnish with some fresh parsley or cilantro from your garden. Have fun making this recipe one of your family's favorites!
In a medium saucepan, bring to a boil:
Preventing diabetes, heart disease, and obesity in children is important. There are so many environmental factors that can influence the development - or the prevention - of diseases. The choices we make matter. Eating foods full of fiber matters. Eating fruits and vegetables that are the colors of the rainbow matters. Choosing to avoid foods from cans made with BPA matters. (BPA stands for Bisphenol A, a chemical used to harden plastic containers and the linings of canned foods and drinks. There is evidence that it can disrupt hormones of children, affect the brain and behavior of infants and young children, and may be be linked to diabetes, obesity, and ADHD.)
I, for one, choose to eat lots of lentils and to be BPA-free. How about you?
