Some people believe that removing impurities from your water gives food a cleaner taste. If you have a water filter, try it to see if you can tell the difference.
Health editor Anne Montague says: “The heart-healthy mix of fibre-rich beetroot (which is also high in potassium and nitrates) and lentils, along with the monounsaturated fats in hazelnuts, are thought to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Lentils and beetroot are also rich in iron, which helps boost energy levels.”
