As you may know, when you combine lentils and rice, you get a complete protein.
That means that you get all of the essential amino acids your body needs. (You don’t get that if you eat just one or the other.)
Now, I eat a lot of animal food. So I don’t have a protein deficiency in my diet.
But I probably eat too much animal food.
What I’ve found is that lentils and beans work better for me that just rice.
When I eat rice alone, my sugar spikes, and, I crave … eating a ton more rice.
But when I eat lentils or beans, I don’t feel the need to keep shoving in more.
And, I feel satisfied – without the steak or chicken.
So, I’m not going Vegan. But this is just a note to my fellow meat-eaters out there:
You may not need meat every day of the week.
