So, little by little, I've been trying to work my way back into healthier meals and snacks. But as I mentioned last week, lack of time and energy steal the inspiration all too often.
This past week I was determined to make something I could use for dinners and lunch.
I made a wonderful bowl.
Are any of you familiar with the fabulous healthy food blog - Oh She Glows?
She has a recipe for something called the Power Protein Goddess Bowl.
Mine wasn't quite the same thing, but it was good and the perfect thing to help during the weeks of crazy NYS testing.
I started with a variety of roasted foods:
While those were roasting, I made a big pot of brown rice and another pot of my sprouted lentils. I mixed the lentils with the leftover hummus from last week and baked for about ten minutes.
When everything was ready, I just mixed an assortment of the ingredients and topped with toasted sunflower seeds. Gotta love that crunch!
It was good - and just what I wanted. Because of the rice and lentils, it was totally filling but in a non-bloating way. The roasted veggies just gave a nice crunch.
It tasted great chilled too.
I need to look into something similar with spring veggies for some variety.
Do you have any ideas. Does this kind of meal appeal to anyone?
