If you want to eat one thing to help the environment, go with lentils. Lentils are rich in protein and considered one of the most climate-friendly proteins grown because it takes very little to grow them. Lentils produce very few emissions from growing, processing, transporting and cooking. When you compare lentils to other protein sources like beef, pork and even eggs, lentils produce about 40 times fewer carbon emissions than almost every animal source out there.
