Lentils are full of protein and fiber, as well as vitamins and minerals, like potassium, folate, and iron. A half cup of cooked lentils has about 9 grams of fiber, about 32% of your daily fiber needs. Lentils are also a mild protein source which is typically more tolerable in patients experiencing taste changes.
Red peppers are rich in antioxidants, including quercetin, which may help to prevent certain chronic diseases such as heart disease.
