Timeless Lentils

Looking for a special lentil treat

Anthropologists studying the ruins of Pompeii unearthed plentiful evidence of lentil consumption; villagers purportedly believed the quick-cooking legumes helped foster an even, nonvolcanic temperament. Based on what we now know about protein and blood sugar, it seems that the ancients were right. Check out organic heirloom varieties from Timeless Natural Food, a Montana company dedicated to preserving rare seeds. Find them at your local natural grocery for $6 a bag.
