  • 500g red lentils

  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Hot Tip! Choose reduced salt canned tomato soup and tomatoes (or fresh) for a lower salt alternative.

Add salt as an ingredient? We often develop a taste for salt however too much and too often can increase blood pressure and have a negative impact on bone health. Try weaning yourself off salt – if at first you have 3 shakes on your meal reduce this back to 2 shakes for a couple of months, then 1 shake and so on.
