Red, green, or French green?
In 2008, black beans beat out lentils by a hair and remain the reigning champ for most laudable legume in terms of antioxidants, but, with regards to protein, iron, zinc, and folate, lentils actually triumph over black beans. The problem is, you go to the store, and there are, three different kinds!
Red lentils, green lentils, and French green lentils. Which is healthiest? We didn’t know until, this year... Well, it’s not, green lentils. Spilling the beans, red lentils are healthiest.
