I often mention using lentils in casseroles with meat, on there own or with other pulses. I was vegetarian once for about 9 years so I did a lot of research on how to keep healthy and eat plenty of protein.

They are a great price as well in this time when we are all feeling the pinch of the economic down turn. Use lentils and cover your daily nutritional requirements.
In the media I keep hearing how expensive food is. I disagree. I use lots of pulses, lentils and beans which are cheap. I keep away from any ready meals . All my recipes freeze so I make my own ready meals .
