Hello, I have recently decided to go away from keto and head more towards Mediterranean.  I plan to eat lentils most days.   Can someone help tell me the healthiest possible way to ma legumes? In particular I am looking at lentils.  I bought some “Organic sprouted lentils” on amazon.  Do I just slow cook? Pre-sprout lentils? Any other options on what I should do for healthiest possible legumes?

You have to slow cook them to boil off the phytic acid.  There is some temperature that is ideal, which I forget.  It's below a boil.
