Lentils. They’re not just for soup anymore. Lentils are packed with protein, which make them a great meat substitute if you’re trying to eat meatless more often. They’re also fiber-rich which will help clean out your insides if you’ve been partying and eating lots of heavy foods and desserts like me. That’s right folks, its back on the clean eating wagon for this girl.
I’m off to the grocery store today (finally) to stock up on veggies, fruits, fiber-ful stuff, protein, healthy fats, and a bunch of junk that The Hubs likes to eat. Oh yeah, and chocolate/baking stuff I need for some projects in my near future. It’s going to be an exciting hump day here in betsylife. What’s happening with you guys this week? Healthy eating? Juice cleanse? Pizza and beer? Binge drinking? Its all part of a balanced lifestyle in my book. If you’re currently on the wagon like I am, and are looking for a quick and healthy dinner, give this lentil salad with grilled peppers a shot. You’ll feel good about yourself (and full). I promise.
