Great vegan and vegetarian 21 day fix lentil soup recipe that is done in under 25 minutes and contains only 250 calories per serving. A budget friendly and healthy dinner meal idea for weight loss.
Are you searching for a healthy low calorie dinner recipe that is also budget friendly?
This soup recipe is adjustable and a great meal in any season. You can substitute the lentils with chicken or beans and the veggies with any other vegetable that you enjoy.
I like to try vegan or vegetarian recipes to mix up my diet and balance my meat intake. Also meatless recipes are less expensive. Beans and lentils are a great meat substitute for so many recipes. They are high in fiber and protein and help you stay full longer.

Why are lentils healthy?
According to MindBodyGreen there are 7 health benefits of lentils. Adding lentils to your diet will help lower cholesterol, improve digestion, stabilize blood sugar, improve heart health and energy levels, and lentils are a good source of protein.
“Although lentils include all these beneficial nutrients like fiber, protein, minerals and vitamins, they are still low in calories and contain virtually no fat.”
Adding lentils to your diet can boost your weight loss progress and they are very affordable. I bought the lentils for under $ 1.50 in my local grocery store and they double/triple in size after cooking. I like to make a big batch of lentils and then add them to my morning chocolate oats, my salad or other recipes.
