Quick, Easy, & Healthy Indian Style Lentil Soup (Based on Amy’s Organic…)

I know how it is: Often times you’re hungry and you’re in a hurry and you use this situation as an excuse to eat something that’s very bad for you because it’s quick easy to do so.

But there are quick easy ways to eat something healthy (and delicious) too. This Indian style soup (based on Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup) is one way to do it:

1. Heat a can of Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup.

2. Add two (or more) cut up tomatoes.

3. Add olive oil.

4. Add turmeric, cumin, garlic, black pepper, ginger, cinnamon, and any other spice you want (one of the big problem with the way most Americans cook is they have no idea that you need to add a lot of spices to things to make them tasty. Stop adding sugar and start adding spice!)

When it’s warmed up, eat it in a bowl. It’s delicious and quite filling.

I’m not including exact amounts because I didn’t bother measuring exact amounts myself and mine turned out delicious. I think it’s hard to go wrong with these spices. If you like Indian food you will probably really enjoy this soup. And while I didn’t try it today I think it’d probably be quite nice over basmati rice!

Next time I might add some onions and green peppers to make it even tastier (and healthier.) One of the great things about something like this is you can take the basic concept and change it up in various (healthy delicious) ways so that it remains easy and good for you but doesn’t get boring.

This soup is not only high in protein and low in sugar, it’s also loaded with immunity boosting foods. The combination of turmeric, black pepper, and olive oil that is found in this soup is particularly effective. Ginger, garlic, and cinnamon also have powerful phytochemicals that can improve your health. Drink a cup of green tea with it to take your healthy madness to the next level!

Working Lunch and Late Dinner

burgerandchili Working Lunch and Late Dinner

Lunch was late and eaten right in front of my computer. Josh graciously (and unexpectantly) brought home burgers and bowls of chili from the local drive-in sort of place. Their chili is homemade and really good and spicy.

Dinner was late too. We weren’t hungry until 9:30 and I was in the mood from something light because lunch was so heavy. I put this together under 10 minutes. Wild caught salmon cooked with organic butter, salt and garlic. I love salmon and rarely think it needs more than a little butter or olive oil and salt. The sweet potato was heated in the microwave and topped with butter, garlic, cayenne and salt. Mixed greens salad with my creamy dressing.

I’m getting the hang of these healthier meals. I think there’s a myth that I probably bought into at some point in my life that healthful meals were expensive and needed to be planned out. I thought they would take longer? Who knows. Anyway, this meal was about $4.50 each and the bulk of that expense was from the salmon.

What are your favorite, cheap and quick dinners?
