What the hell are lentils?

Trying to make gradual improvements to my eating habits. Read that legumes (ie: beans) are a great source of protein and fiber. Unfortunately the only beans I actually like are pork & beans, or bbq beans. So a bit of research reveals that lentils are not only low in carbs, but they're second only to soy beans in protein. One problem. Not only have I never tried a lentil, but I've never even seen a lentil or attempted to prepare one! But, why let something like inexperience and a fear of new foods stop me?

So I bought some lentils. Plan to make a spinach & lentil omelette in the morning. See how that does. Probably have to spice them up a bit, but at least one day I'll be able to go to glory knowing I tried lentils at least once.
