Vegetarians and Proteins +Iron
Some people think meat is the only way to get iron and proteins. But that is untrue. After all, what did the animal eat ? Plants right? Nature has enough variety to get essential nutrients from a plant based diet too. Vegetarian balanced diet is good enough for all kids and elders. It is also easier to digest.
Did you know it takes minimum 3 days to digest a piece of meat?
Eating lentils is a great way of having your proteins and Iron. Just remember to add a dash of lime juice on top.This is full of vitamin C. Hence, helps absorb Iron in lentils easily. If you are vegan, temper the dal in olive oil or coconut oil. If vegetarian, good old ghee or clarified butter works fine. Avoid heeng or asafoetida if going gluten free. You can serve dal with buckwheat poori or amaranth poori instead of wheat.
