Functional Food Friday: Lentils and Pulses

I especially like lentils and other pulses, because they are gluten free and provide many of the nutrients that are at risk on a typical gluten free diet.  For instance, one half cup of cooked lentils provides 12 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber, nearly 100% daily value for manganese, and 10% of the daily value for iron and folate.
