Day 9 - Lentil soup

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

All challenges met emoticon

Finding out about the effects of raw spinach on thyroid function was quite upsetting - so no spinach today!

Breakfast - eggwhite, chia seeds, strawberry and blueberry smoothie with ginger and cinnamon. pot of Irish Breakfast tea.

Snack - bowl of ruby red grapefruit (so much nicer than the yellow grapefruit!)

Lunch - 3-4 oz of rotisserie chicken, 3/4 cup mashed sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts

Snack - 15 almonds, pot of english teatime tea

Dinner - Lentil soup

This so good!! The lime juice made it a little tangy to give it that mexican flavor. It was good without the lime juice too - I had a taste to check the done-ness of the lentils :)

Here is the link to the recipe, enjoy!

It is a very easy and quick recipe. I started it in a pan and then transferred it to my crockpot as my burners don't go low enough for simmer.

    Lol :-D we keep having similar food. I also made lentil soup yesterday! I make mine with onions tomato and cilantro blended into the broth and top it with raw chopped onions :-). I used a sprouted bean trio for it instead of just lentils. So yummy. Yours looks delicious. Congrats on day 9! You are on a roll now. I bet you are starting to see some progress ;-)

Just looked at the recipe you used and it is very similar to how I make mine. It is just missing the carrots and zucchini. Mmm I will probably have it for lunch today.

    What great choices you made. Recipe sounds great. I just made the following (twice because so good!)
Lentil Chili
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp. cumin
10 c. water
1 lb. dry lentils
2 tsp. salt
2 c. salsa
29 oz. canned tomatoes, crushed
1 lb. ground beef
1 tsp. chili powder
Brown ground beef with the onion, drain. Add lentils and water. Simmer 1 1/2 hours. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. (can omit beef and double the lentils. Also serve over rice to stretch it further
