When stacked up against other beans, lentils are No. 2 in protein (soybeans take top honors). When combined with a whole grain, like brown rice, they can give you the same quality of protein as meat. But when you eat lentils instead of red or processed meat, you make a healthier choice for your heart.
Protein is a building block of bones, muscles, and skin. It can also curb your appetite because it keeps you feeling full longer than other nutrients do.
