Black Lentil Salad with feta cheese

by Klaraslife

This post is also available in german/deutsch.Black lentil saladPeople naturally need less energy on such hot days than in the icy winter time. But many keep their standard program, at least when it comes to eating habits. The result could be fatigue and indolence.

This can be counteracted with light cuisine.
A nice recipe for this is a delicious black lentil salad made from beluga lentils, vegetables and some sheep’s cheese. By and large, we are avoiding carbohydrates here.
Nevertheless, the salad makes you feel full and at the same time supplies the body with important minerals. In addition to hydration, this is also very important at these temperatures.

Just give it a try. That tastes really great!
