Most Valuable Ingredient: Lentils

A piece I wrote for, the first of a series called Most Valuable Ingredient, just went live. Its subject: Lentils!

Here’s how Weight Watchers describes a Most Valuable Ingredient:

A limited budget doesn’t have to mean limited flavor. Our Most Valuable Ingredient series highlights those powerhouse products that are versatile, healthy, tasty and cheap, giving you the best bang for your buck.

Some of my other MVIs include:

  • Potatoes
  • Frozen Spinach
  • Brown Rice
  • Apples
  • Oatmeal
