Green lentils are one of the complex carbohydrates, they are full of fibre, folate, magnesium and contain beneficial fats. Also, remember fibre is able to support the reduction of cholesterol in your body. Tip from me: If you want a quick dinner, then buy green lentils in tin, It’s the quickest thing ever :).
