I love soup season! This delicious soup will keep you nourished and warmed up all winter, ad you can enjoy it for dinner or even as a healthy lunch. The soup is hearty, thick but not heavy at all. Try it and you’ll be hooked! The best thing about this Red Lentil and Quinoa Soup is that it’s super easy to make. You only need few ingredients: red lentils, quinoa, carrots, onions, garlic, tomatoes, serrano peppers and chicken broth.
I know what it is like to set “living fit” New Year’s Resolutions and not sticking to them because I have been in that same boat numerous times in the past. Last year and this year that was not the case though because I’ve been on a healthy fitness journey for almost 2 years. And so I figured that this time I could offer some motivation that has helped me stick to my regimen.
The Big Game calls for snacks big in flavor, but easy to eat while you watch. We’ve made some simple Surf and Turf snacks from this week’s ad items that are big on flavor, but bite-sized so you can focus on the game.
Smoothie bowls have been making the blogging rounds as a fun new approach to breakfast. Basically, you make a smoothie, put it in a bowl, and put stuff on top of it. Stirred together, the smoothie bowl has more texture and interest than a basic smoothie, and since you’re (probably) sitting down to eat it, you can take your time to really enjoy it, rather than just slurping it down. All the convenience and health benefits of a smoothie, but a lot more fun. We decided to try it by making our own.
I don’t know about you but I am in full holiday detox mode. So many cookies, so much eggnog … it all leads to the inevitable cleanse/diet/reboot in January. I’m trying to make better meal decisions lately, which led me to research smoothie bowls. I’ve seen them all over Pinterest and I know they were all the rage a couple years ago (I always seem to be late to the trends). A smoothie bowl is a great option for breakfast if you love smoothies but need a little something extra. A smoothie is more like a snack for me – delicious, but not enough to keep me powering through until lunch. The best thing about smoothie bowls is you can completely customize it to suit your tastebuds and diet. They are easy to adapt for paleo, or vegan, or gluten free. You literally can top your smoothie bowl with whatever you like!
