As I coach women through the 4 Week Gut Protocol I often hear that they struggle to eat their “Red B” container (which is the vegan or plant based protein).
One of my favorite ways to get in my Red B container is with soup!
During 4 Week Gut Protocol, I made soup every week. It was especially important in week 1 to help me get more veggies in, when I wasn’t able to eat salads!
There is a lentil soup listed in the 4 Week Gut Protocol Recipes but I wanted to share the recipe that I really love that takes just 4 minutes to prep in the crockpot, slow cooker or instant pot.

Why Lentils are Great For Gut Health
Lentils are my go-to plant based protein source!
⚡️In 1/2 cup cooked lentils, you’ll get 9 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber and 15% of your daily iron needs
⚡️Lentils are a source of prebiotic fiber, which is the type your gut bacteria prefers
⚡️Lentils help manage blood sugar levels and have been shown to make your heart healthier, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure.
⚡️Lentils are considered environmentally friendly crops.
