so I've really fell off the wagon here. I have not been logging my food, I have not eaten what I should, and I haven't been exercising. I have no excuse either. I can't say I've been super busy or that I've had some terrible thing happen that prevented me from doing so. Computer works just fine. I just haven't done the right thing. This morning I had lentils for breakfast. That was my effort at being healthy minded. I had some brown rice at lunch but next to the batter fried white meat chicken I don't know that any of that made a difference.
As far as the lentils for breakfast thing: I was curious to see if I could cook lentils in my rice cooker. It's a Zojirushi Fuzzy logic one. This is the second one that I've had, I gave away the first to replace it with this one which is smaller. I love my rice cooker. I really can't say enough about how wonderful it is. I've heard of others cooking all sorts of weird things in their rice cookers and thought I would try lentils. This was very late last night. Either way, it was successful. 1 cup of lentils, 2 cups of water, 1 knorr chicken cube, bunch of dried herbs and spices and set on the brown rice setting. Turned out great. This morning I woke up to lentils that although were a bit black, tasted wonderful and had a good texture. I think that next time I would probably use less water and take them out of the pot as soon as they were done instead of treating it as we do rice in my house, which is always in the cooker.
Lentils are good~ Life is good~
