WIAW-Crock Pot Lentil Soup

by admin on October 3, 2012

good morning!

 

I can’t believe its already October

this month’s WIAW is all about sharing healthy halloween treats and spooky snacks

I’m not a fan of halloween (sorry to kill the buzz) but I do love October because of everything pumpkin and apple inspired!

many of mine include pumpkin, but I am also a sucker for fall apple dishes

like my apple loaf and apple cake

and pumpkin butter overnight oats and pumpkin green monsters ..or you could pin pumpkin recipe after pumpkin recipe on pinterest like I do:)

Breakfast

I kept it simple with breakfast yesterday: 1 whole wheat english muffin with maple almond butter, 1/2 a banana, and pumpkin pecan butter 

so simple, yet SO good.

I also had 2 cups of coffee..per usual.

Lunch

since it was a dreary rainy day yesterday (it rains EVERy tuesday in delaware..in case you didn’t know) I was in the mood for something warm and cozy for lunch

enter egg and veggie scramble: I sauteed some mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach and zucchini in a pan and added in 1 egg, some egg whites, american cheese, and half a cooked sweet potato (its buried under there I promise)

topped with avocado and sriracha and I was a happy camper

I also burnt my mouth numerous times eating this because I was kind of in a rush but whatever it was worth it

Snack

I was at the coffee shop studying and ate a handful of almonds and the juiciest honey crisp apple ever.

and then right after that i was still starving so I bought a chobani

I was so tempted to buy a bag of goldfish and stress eat the whole thing..but I obviously went for the healthier option

ugh why can’t goldfish be good for you?!

Dinner

staying with the warm and cozy theme I went with a soup and salad combo for dinner

I had a salad with mixed greens, turkey, goat cheese, snap peas, tomatoes, carrots and italian dressing

earlier yesterday morning i whipped out the crock pot and took about 10 minutes to have dinner ready and waiting for me 8 hours later

****
this soup was delicious, filling, and I felt healthier after every bite :)
then I had some pretzel M&M’s..
because its all about balance:)
pretzel m&m’s are definitely my favorite halloween candy..the sweet and salty combo just can’t be beat
****
i have a LOT of studying ahead of me so you may not hear from me for a bit
but I hope everyone has a great day!
