Lentil Coconut Curry


Lentil Coconut Curry Once again I found myself recipe-browsing over the weekend, searching for a unique, healthy, plant-based dish that I hadn't previously tried. This lentil coconut curry caught my eye for a few reasons. First of all, I love lentils. They are a true, plant-based super food. Not only do they cook quickly, but only one cup is loaded with protein (18 grams), fiber (16 grams), folic acid (90% RDI), and iron (37% RDI). They also happen to be a good source of potassium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B6. Second, I love Indian-inspired curry dishes, but especially creamy coconut curries. [...]

Nut and Seed Breakfast Bars


Nut and Seed Breakfast Bars Many people tell me they don't have time for breakfast in the morning. If they do eat, it might be a processed bar of some kind or something with empty calories that can be eaten on the go. Other people tell me they just get tired of eating oatmeal or smoothies as their only healthy options. These breakfast bars are a great alternative! They have even more nutrition than a bowl of oatmeal and the convenience of being portable! Make a tray and freeze the bars so they can be thrown in the microwave [...]
