Food Friday-Lentil Burgers

Lentil Burgers

Lentils are legumes along with other types of beans. Compared to other types of dried beans, lentils are relatively quick and easy to prepare. They readily absorb a variety of wonderful flavors from other foods and seasonings, are high in nutritional value and are available throughout the year.

Lentils, a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Not only do lentils help lower cholesterol, they are of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal. But this is far from all lentils have to offer. Lentils also provide good to excellent amounts of six important minerals, two B-vitamins, and protein—all with virtually no fat. The calorie cost of all this nutrition? Just 230 calories for a whole cup of cooked lentils. This tiny nutritional giant fills you up—not out.

Stephie Wharam

I am a strong, independent woman that has always taken care of myself. I am proud of the woman that I am. I have a ton of love in my heart and share it as often as I can. I often get burned, but that will never change the love I give to others. I'm gonna shine :) My name is Stephanie, but I like to be called Stephie because I feel like it better represents the cute, lovey nature of who I am. I am from and located in beautiful Richmond, Virginia. I am a very busy, active 32 year old. I work full time and go to college 3/4 time. I also teach three yoga classes a week, have a family, and find time for my own health and fitness. If I can find 4% or less a day to work out so can you! I love yoga and kickboxing. I am a registered yoga teacher and fitness coach with Beachbody. I love to inspire and help people. Fitness and nutrition are very important to me. I am loving and bubbly and talk A LOT :). I have a dog and two cats. That is me and my life :)
