100 Less Lentils

Okay, so I just realized I had some type of lentil soup for lunch and dinner yesterday – that’s a lot of lentils!  They were good, but I don’t know if that’s ever happened before.

Since I started the Heart Health series at lunch, I thought I would just do lunch + dinner in one post tonight so you wouldn’t have picture/info overload  :)


Lunch was the last of the Tandoori Chicken, Apricot Couscous, and some steamed veggies




and an apple, to round out the meal.




I was starving this afternoon, so I also had about an ounce of mixed nuts (mostly raw almonds under the salted ones) to fill me up. That healthy fat does wonders for a hungry stomach!



We went running today! Yay!  It wasn’t warm by any means (mid forties), but much better than yesterday. I had a banana this afternoon to see if that helps with the cramp situation.


The Verdict? I still got cramps, but Nick said I should  try again and eat it a little earlier than I did today. So, we’ll do another experiment with it and see if it helps. I got a bad cramp a few minutes after we started – then we stopped to look at a map about 15 minutes in – after we started up again (about a minute later) the one cramp was gone, but then I got one on the other side near the end. Maybe I’m just cursed?


Since we were going to our friend’s house for group tonight, we packed dinner to eat in my office on those lovely, fancy paper plates.

I mean, really. Isn’t this design just beautiful?

Hooray for Tuesday being over, and hooray that this is my 100th post! I can’t believe it  :)

  1. Congratulations on your 100th post!! That’s so exciting. Yay!

    Thanks again for the great interview questions you sent to me. I hope I did them justice!

  2. Congratulations on the 100th post! Delicious, love mixed nuts!

  3. That apple photo is so artsy! Love the one of the nuts, too. It is amazing how quickly nuts fill me up!

    I would kill for mid 40s right now!! You soak that up, Brandi! I mean it!

    I hope that you find the answer to your cramp problem. I find that I am very off and on with that and there doesn’t seem to be any logical explanation for why I get them some days and don’t others. It’s frustrating!

    Congrats on your 100th post!

  4. HOORAY!!! 100 posts!!! Man, I should’ve done a multiple-post-a-day kind of thing… it took me 3 months to hit 100!
