Lentils and pulses are a great source of protein, which helps provide satiety. Adding lentil soup to a meal can help balance out the macros and the overall glucose load of the meal. When lentils are made into a soup, their molecular structure is changed through mashing, reducing the meal’s glycemic index (GI) and making it easier to absorb in the bloodstream.

Ways of having lentil soup in the diet
• You may use healthy ingredients to make your lentil soup, such as fresh vegetables, lean protein and low-sodium broth.
• Consider experimenting with different flavour combinations and ingredients to keep your lentil soup exciting and tasty. Add herbs, spices, or different vegetables to mix the flavours.
• Consider combining sprouted lentils with some veggies & herbs and eat it as a mid-morning snack.
• Try to retain fibre structure & eat this whole or add it to your salads.
• Try to combine it with your carbs.

Lentil soup can have a positive impact on glucose metabolism due to its high fibre and protein content. Fibre and protein can slow down the absorption of glucose and carbohydrates in the bloodstream, preventing blood sugar spikes and promoting more stable blood sugar levels.
