Hair gets its structure from keratin, which is essentially hardened protein. So getting enough protein in your diet is vital to hair health.
Lentils happen to also be iron-rich, which is great news for vegetarians who often struggle to find non-meat sources of both protein and iron.
For an unusual and delicious way to incorporate lentils, whip up some chipotle lentil tacos with fresh guacamole.
- To prepare, cook the lentils with vegetable broth, lime juice and chipotle peppers in a saucepan.
- Serve on soft tacos with a spoonful of spicy guacamole.
