Description of Product: “Heart Month is here and we’re not referring to Valentine’s Day! February is American Heart Month – a great time to raise awareness about simple lifestyle changes we can all make to better our heart health.
Starting with what you put on your plate and incorporating more superfoods, such as lentils, is a great first step. According to Prevention Magazine, a recent international study proves lentils can reduce blood pressure. Lentils were associated with an 82% reduction in the risk of death from heart disease, not only because of lean vegetable protein and fiber, but also folate, magnesium, and potassium.
A leader in the emerging sprouted food industry, TruRoots offers innovative, shelf-stable sprouted food products including a Sprouted Lentil Trio. TruRoots takes the work out of sprouting foods at home and cooks in just 5 to 7 minutes.
Review of Product: I will admit that these sprouted grains trios scared me a little. The little sprouted part was like nothing we had eaten before but we have open minds and are sold now! These are hearty whole grains that I feel good about feeding my family. We tried the quinoa plain and it was yummy – it has a rich nutty flavor. I doctored up the lentil trio with some mushrooms and artichokes and boy was that yummy! These grains can be easily adapted to all kinds of cuisines, we had the lentil trio with some Indian spiced chicken! I feel so much better feeding these to my family than plain white rice or potatoes! We also love to eat these plain with a little olive oil and salt and pepper – yum!
Giveaway: The folks at truRoots have graciously decided to give one (1) lucky Nicole’s Nickels winner one bag of each of the 3 varieties!
