Meal Planning Day of Organization Week was quite a success!
I loved having my recipe binder at the store! It made shopping so much easier (and cheaper because I shopped with purpose). And just putting a little bit more effort into my recipes is making be happy.
Dinner was a planned meal: Lentil, Carrot, and Lemon Soup.
This recipe was from Body and Soul magazine. It was easy to make and involves simmering vegetable broth, carrots, and 3/4 up of green lentils for 20 minutes and then adding juice of 1 lemon to the broth before serving.
I’m not sure how I felt about this soup. It was good, but my palate kept confusing the lemon with salt and my tongue wasn’t pleased. The Husband will eat when he gets home, so I’ll update if he likes it.
The salad was stand-out!
This afternoon, I snacked on some of these Pomegranate and Vanilla Cashews. Ohmigod — so, so addicting.
And a bowl of cereal.
And another vegan cookie.
And then I talked myself onto going on a short run. :) My body was saying "YES," but my mind was saying "Couch!" I did the old Just-Do-2-Miles trick and managed to get in a decent workout.

Something is better than nothing!
