Lentils

Lentils are sweet and warm in nature. Lentils benefit the spleen and stomach which can be quite beneficial for low energy and cold syndrome. However lentils, if eaten too much, will overwork the spleen causing dampness in the body. Overeating lentils can also cause bloating of the stomach caused by liver qi stagnation. People with allergies should avoid lentils and people with yin deficiency also.
