SOUP. I could eat it every day for both lunch and dinner – and I often DO eat soup for lunch every day at work, but never for dinner because J doesn’t think soup constitutes enough of a meal. (I’m working on that one, trust me!)
This soup has all kinds of good-for-you veggies in it: sweet potato, carrots, and red lentils.
Wait a sec, lentils are actually part of a category called “pulses.” (I just learned about pulses the other day because Pulses are now the food trend of the year. Seriously.) Pulses are lentils, beans and chickpeas – they are high in protein and fibre and low in cost! Seriously, trade in pulses for meat a couple of nights a week for a significant slash on your grocery bill.
