Health Benefits of Squash are a very good source of vitamins B1 and C, folic acid, pantothenic acid, fiber, and potassium. Squash is also a good source of vitamin B6 and niacin. Choose a squash that is in season.

The Health Benefits of lentils are that they are very rich in protein (about 26%), folic acid, and both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Lentils are also very high in Vitamin C and the B vitamins, and contain eight of the essential amino acids. They also contain many trace minerals. Lentils are one of the highest sources of antioxidants found in winter growing legumes.
The soluble fiber in lentils also helps eliminate cholesterol, since it binds to it, reducing blood cholesterol levels. There is also evidence to prove that lentils can slow the liver's manufacture of cholesterol, which similarly helps to reduce levels in the body.
Lentils for Weight Loss
Because insoluble fiber is indigestible and passes through the body virtually intact, it provides few calories. And since the digestive tract can handle only so much bulk at a time, fiber-rich foods are more filling than other foods, so people tend to eat less.


Ingredients:
1 cup Lentils
2 onions
1 small red onion
4 Carrots
2 diced cloves of garlic
2 cups diced squash
1 sweet potatoe
1 stalk celery
1 veggie bouillon cube

A further 10 minutes in, add carrots and celery.
Towards the end, add watercress or a dark green leafy vegetable such as kale.

Wellness Tip
Hand Weights
Should you swing hand weights while walking? Experts disagree, but in the interests of safety, it is probably better not to use them. Gripping the weights while walking can increase blood pressure. They can also increase the strain on arm and shoulder muscles, and ligaments. If you decide to use weights anyway, swing smoothly, keep the weights under good control and limit the weights to no more than 3 pounds.
