Healthy Lunch Inspo: Lupini Bean Slaw

Healthy Lunch Inspo: Lupini Bean Slaw

Lupini beans are one of my most recent plant protein obsessions! I’m all for discovering delicious new ways to up my protein game now that I eat plant-based & let me tell you, these were a hella discovery! They take a regular slaw from 0 to 100 real quick!

  • they’re termed the “Roman supersnack”; the Roman warriors relief on a miracle bean to fuel them on long campaigns
  • lupini beans are the richest source of plant protein per calorie of any play on earth (richer than soybeans, lentils, chickpeas, peanuts, quinoa, chia & almonds)
  • they contain 2.6x more minerals than coconut water
  • sugar-free, soy-free & 0g net carbs
  • 35% more fibre than oats
  • paleo, vegan & non-GMO
  • easy to digest because they’re sprouted & fermented, which flushed out the enzyme inhibitors, phytates & other compounds which make other legumes hard to digest
  • they have an excellent amino acid profile
  • rich in antioxidants & help lower cholesterol

INGREDIENTS:

  • Handful cherry tomatoes
