Lentil Love

I am so beat!  I am not really sure why, but I do have a lot to do tomorrow so I am planning on watching Jamie Oliver in bed once I am done with this post!  I can’t believe it is series finally tonight, I wish they had touched on more aspects of the backwards food programs of America ie. farming and labor!  I guess with only 6 shows you can’t go that deep into the story.

I was really uninspired while making lunch today so I was only excited to eat because I was hungry.  I hate meals like this!  They seem to happen on Fridays when the fridge is running low on the good stuff.

 011 Wrap and orange. Yep.

012 I really like Minneola oranges better than navel ones!013 In the wrap: carrots, maters, LC wedge, lemon hummus, hot peppers.  It was not enough.  Thankfully the group next to us was having a party and they shared their leftovers.  Some of the food was not pretty.  You should see people around free food!

014 I snagged some olives and cheese, which is exactly what I needed.

The day came and went and I was finally on my way home through awful Friday afternoon traffic.

I made a little pre-gym snack before heading out the door.015 I am slowly finishing some bagel thins, but I really put off by how many preservatives they have in them.  I can’t throw food out but they have been on my counter for at least a month and have no mold.  My Wegmans bread grows mold in 3 days…yep.  Anywho I spread on homemade cinnamon vanilla almond butter and jelly.  Best after work/school snack.

Then I went to the gym to test out the calf/knee.  I did 30min on the elliptical and 15min incline walk, with a 2min run to end.  My calf is still a little stiff, but I think with rolling and another day off she should be good to go.  My knee is still the same, working but I need to be nice to it.  Arms, legs and core then home for dinner!

Nick was no here for dinner so I got to make something he is not a fan of, lentils!  Man I love lentils.

I have heard of Snobby Joe’s all over the web so I started with this recipe and just went with it.

018 I didn’t have any tomato sauce so I added marinara and fresh tomatoes.  I also 1/4 the recipe because I was only making one serving. These were so good!  Lentil love baby.

Along with my lentils I had some green beans drowned in sweet and spicy mustard that made my nose run!  It is like wasabi in that way.


016 Jamie Oliver is making me laugh.  A child had McDonalds in Elementary school…yep.

OK time to hit the hay.  Where is Sissy Pants?

Enjoy the weekend!

    LilyBeans…keeping bread fresh(er), keep it in the refrigerator. Don’t want to lose the benefits of no preservatives! Love, Moma Beans

      I know that mom! But it doesn’t taste the same from the fridge so I try and keep it out as long as possible. Call you in a bit.

        You are right….it is definitely a trade off! Had some fresh sour dough from WFM tonight…heavenly!

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed the Snobby Joe recipe. I need to make another batch myself!!
