Dahl Lentil Soup

We had "Dahl Lentil Soup" tonight with naan bread, salad, and fruit.
It was a new recipe...I really liked it!

Looking for Protein?

We all know it is tough to get your protein in as a vegetarian, and you can only do so much soy. Here are my favorite proteins and the best ways to eat them:
  1. Peanut Butter: Anything from PB&J to peanut butter and celery, I can't get enough of it! Go for the all natural though - it's better tasting and better for you!
  2. Beans: They're so good! There are dozens of types and millions of ways to eat them. Salads, rice, pasta, and burgers are some of the most common ways.
  3. Eggs. If you aren't vegan, eggs are a great way to get protein. Try omelets for dinner, or get creative by making mini tortes or tossing some scrambled strips into a stir fry.
  4. Spinach: It has more protein than you think. Toss it in a salad, put it on a sandwich, or stir it into pretty much any pasta or grain to add delicious flavor and health-factor.
P.S. What's For Dinner? 
It's family dinner night! We're making fajitas - perfect for a crowd of cousins
