Indian Spiced Lentils with Chicken & Carrots for Dinner!

Daily Tidbit:  Lentils build your iron stores!   Check out the link below which discusses Lentils the other 11 foods on Shape Magazine's "12 best power foods for women" list:


Breakfast: Oatmeal with Walnuts & Blueberries
½ cup plain Oatmeal (cooked with Fat Free Milk, in microwave)
2 tbsp of plain Walnuts
1/2 cup Blueberries
2-3 shakes Plain Cinnamon on top
5 oz. glass of OJ
Regular Coffee, black


Lunch: Soup & Sandwich
2 cups of Curry Cauliflower Carrot Soup, topped with crumbles from 3 Corn Tortilla Chips
Roasted Red Pepper Bean Dip on a Medium Whole Wheat Wrap

My kids gave me the idea for the Corn Chip crumbles on the soup (a nice sweet crunchy addition!) when I saw them dipping their Corn Chips into this soup, as well as their White Beans and Cheddar Cheese slices!


Snack:  1/4 cup dry roasted, lightly salted Peanuts, Fat Free Milk


Dinner:  Indian Spiced Lentils with Chicken
1 bowl (2 cups of the Lentils) with 2 Chicken Breast Tenders with 1 cup of boiled Carrots chopped and added before serving
Water with Lemon

My husband loves Lentils, so I just searched for a slow cooker recipe using them and came across this recipe at the now famous "A Year of Slow Cooking" Blog.


My husband loved this dish.  I felt good about all the iron and fiber and it certainly was filling!


Dessert:  Gala Apple
