Imperfectly Raw Day 17

 Imperfectly Raw Day 17

Good morning!

Started the day with water and coffee.

Lunch:  Lemon Ginger Blast and Green Smoothie…same recipe as yesterday.  I only ate half of my smoothie because I was busy at the shop and was not that hungry.

Snack:  I had a Lara bar and a Kind bar during the day.

I made a Lentil and Vegetable Stew for dinner and served it with whole grain Scoops chips.  It was good so Here is the recipe:

Lentil Vegetable Stew

1 cup dry lentils, rinsed

1 yellow onion, diced

2 leeks, sliced

1 8-oz package sliced mushrooms

1/2 red bell pepper, diced

2-1/2 Tbsp olive oil

2 tsp minced garlic

1-1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tsp Herbs de Provence

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (or more if you like hot)

1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes

3 cups vegetable broth or water

2 handfuls fresh spinach

Heat olive oil on medium heat in large pot.  Add diced onion and garlic.  Cook 3 or 4 minutes.

Add sliced leeks and cook 1 minute.

Add mushrooms and diced red bell pepper.  Sprinkle with salt.  Cook on high for 5 minutes stirring often.

Add balsamic vinegar.

Add Herbs de Provenence, red pepper flakes, and crushed tomatoes.  Simmer a couple of minutes.

Add lentils and broth or water.  Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for about 25 minutes, until lentils are done.  Add more water if needed.

Turn off heat.  Stir in spinach and let it wilt a couple of minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.
