My goal for tonight is NOT to do what I did last night, which was stay up until midnight working on a contract for the clinic and eating four of these epic cookies. Whoops.
Easier said than done, of course.
At least I have a healthy dinner under my belt. Good place to start.
Featuring… red lentils. I usually buy the precooked lentils from Trader Joe’s but ventured out on a limb and grabbed these red lentils from the bulk bins at Whole Foods.
Fun facts about lentils:
They are technically legumes.
They’ve been eaten by humans for more than 9,000 years.
1/4 cup of red lentils contains 13 grams of protein.
Lentils come in a rainbow of colors – brown, yellow, red, green, and orange. Black ones are the smallest.
Now you know. And they taste really good when mixed with marinara sauce and served on toast.
I overboiled mine (about 20 minutes, 5 minutes too long for these red lentils) but they were still tasty.
Thought of the Day:
I posted this on the HTP Facebook page but liked it so much that I wanted to share it here, too!
PS – Thanks for all your sleep advice today! Soooo invaluable. I’m pleased to report that H went down for a grand total of four naps (unfortunately, all very short – but it’s a lot of progress!) and is now dozing happily in his bed for the night.
