LENTILS, LENTILS, LENTILS.

They’re full of benefits like fiber, minerals, vitamins, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, they keep everything moving, if you know what I mean. Winky, winky.

Lentils are your friend.

& when you mix them with avocado ( hello healthy fats!! ), fresh herbs, & some olive oil…

YES PLZ.

This recipe comes from my friends, Megan & Peggy, over at Curry Girls Kitchen. They’re a mom & daughter team who I’ve known since I was born! I adore them both & their recipes are spot on. Highly recommend them all.

AND UM they EVEN DO A FUNFETTI gluten-free cake… I feel like I need to make this next? Funfetti is so festive & nostalgic, this cake is calling my name!

Anyway, this recipe is easy breezy.

You can keep this in your fridge for a few days of quick & easy lunch recipes. Just throw it in your Kardashian salad bowl & you’re good to go really.

You should know when eating lentils that “they’re a good source of potassium, calcium, zinc, niacin and Vitamin K, but are particularly rich in dietary fiber, lean protein, folate and iron. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that eating plenty of nutrient-dense foods like lentils can lessen your risk of many serious medical problems.”

They’re known as one of the world’s healthiest foods. Just make sure you’re cooking them yourself and not getting them from a can filled with random unhealthy ingredients.

ALSO, Curry Girls Kitchen & I did a virtual recipe swap! How 2016 of us, right? They whipped up a sandwich from The Skinny Confidential Book which happens to be one of my favorites: The Half Ass Sandwich. YUM.

Hope you’re all having a very relaxing Sunday. I’m off to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday which will include lots of Kombucha & champagne gummy bears.

Chat tomorrow, lauryn x

    As a vegetarian, lentils have been life saving! I don’t want to eat tofu and soy every day, and with lentils you can be pretty creative and get a good amount of protein at the sam time.

    I know homemade lentils are the best, but I also love the Progresso Vegetable Classics lentil soup! Very salty and good.
