The month of May is ‘Love Your Lentils’ month! This is one of our favourite times of the year as we treat our staff to lentil based food items, contests and delicious meal ideas. Along with eating all this amazing food we like to provide key information about the benefits of lentils that we work with everyday.
Lentils truly are a unique super food that can help us reach our goal to “Nourish the World”.
