Using canned lentils in a crock pot

I got a crock pot for Christmas, yay! I want to make this Slow-Cooker Spanish Lentil and Chorizo stew. It calls for dried lentils but I only have canned. Will putting them in a crock pot for 5 hours turn them into complete mush? Can I do it, or do I have to venture out onto the icy street of death to get dried lentils?

What kind of seed is this?

These seeds were in a package of lentils, but what are they? The lentils package looked like from India, but said, "product of Canada." I know we grow a lot of lentils, so I assume these were grown here. What are the seeds? I'm a gardener, and I've never seen these before.

What a waste.

I made some lentil soup earlier in my cast-iron dutch-oven/pot. It's a new pot and I've seasoned it once and that seemed to do a good job. Anyway, I had a bowl of my soup as soon as it was ready, but I just went back to the stove to pack the leftovers up and clean the pot and the soup has turned from a muddy green broth to a dark sludge, nearly black.

Can dried lentils go bad?

Do dried lentils go bad? I have a bag of red lentils in an airtight container and they have been there for a while. What's weird is that they are no longer red. Any ideas why?

Low cal, low fat, low carb, high fiber, high protein foods?

One serving of lentils has only ~120 calories, 0 grams of fat, 10g of protein (20% of daily recommended amount), and 11g of fiber (44% of daily recommended amount). What are other superfoods with similarly high levels of protein and fiber, and low levels of carbs, fat, and calories?
