Lots of Iron and Protein in this dish; vital high iron levels enabling you to be energised and happy mood in general.
But especially for training; high iron levels to help with endurance.
And LOTS of protein in Lentils.

I had always taken great care of my diet but since January of 2018, eating more Pulses and Sweet Potatoes And cutting down on the amount of meat that I consume, it has made an incredible difference to my Running times and also made me an even happier, bubbler person.

You Do not necesserily need to rely on meat for Protein.
You can actually get just much protein from vegetables.
Since ive eaten more Lentils, Kumara & Chickpeas; seen my results improve no end.

Even for those non athletes, a more rounded balanced diet is very important and it is hugely important that you eat more of these pulses and fruit and vegetables and even carbs.

Red Meats and foods from the meat family should, in reality, only be consumed probably once a week, twice at the very most.
If cooking for one, half the ingredients.
