Note: somebody told one day that I have to eat more lentejas because I have missing a baby during an early deliver for five months that she was in my womb so, someone told me that eat lentejas will be good to me to get the hierro that I lost so I start to use lentejas but I was bored to eat them just cooked so I invented a new way to eat them and I really like them...
