Hi all~ like I said before, this morning I had more extra time because of not working out so I had time to make dinner and pop it in the fridge for later! yay!
Red lentils have to be the cheapest protein source out there. I got a 1/2 lb bag for only $1.50. Beat that. So, with my cheap red lentils I made dal again! By now I’ve become sort of obsessed to Garam Masala and use it anytime I can. I made Lindsay’s dal again but I didn’t have onions, tomato paste, ginger or veggie stock….it still turned out fine! I just subbed water for stock and sauted the garlic in about a tsp of coconut oil. I also made some brown rice and popped that in the fridge as well for a belly-warming healthy meal tonight!
Of course any meal isn’t complete without something green on the plate (haha mom)–so I made a big spinach salad with carrots, bell pepper, cucumber and grape tomatoes to go alongside it with goddess dressing. I was going to saute spinach instead, but I really do enjoy raw veggies at their finest! Now if only I could get Ryan to eat a salad like this with every dinner we would be all good ;).
I was very excited and honored to be asked to be one of Lindsay’s recipe testers for her every popular future cookbook that will hitting the shelves someday soon! So, in the upcoming weeks I will be testing and working with her on some recipes that you all will def. be able to enjoy later once the book is in print. Of course I can’t reveal the actual recipes to Lindsay’s dishes, but you will of course be able to enjoy many pictures and critiques!
Off to school now to bake some apple pies~ I think I shall bring a Key Lime Larabar with me tonight for a snack…a new flavor I’ve never tried!
