Here is what we ate today...
Breakfast - Rhett used up the leftover potatoes and bacon and made this egg scramble. So so so good.
Lunch - Leftovers. Quinoa w/zucchini, pea salad and some grapes.
Snack - This was the perfect snack. It totally hit the spot. This will definitely be a repeat.
Dinner - Soup and biscuits. I was planning on making salmon tonight, but it turned out to be a chilly day and I just wanted soup. We love this soup and have it several times during the winter months. This is the first time I tried this biscuit recipe. It is from the Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook. For being gluten free, they weren't too bad. I was surprised how "normal" they looked on the inside.
Hearty Lentil Soup
4 celery ribs, diced
1 medium onion, diced
3-4 carrots, diced
1 garlic glove, minced
2 tbsp butter or coconut oil
6 cups chicken broth
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
3/4 cup dry lentils, rinsed (I use the small black french lentils)
3/4 cup barley
1/2 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Saute the celery, onion, carrots and garlic in the butter. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer for about 40 minutes.
Dessert - We made these wonderful blondies for Family Home Evening tonight. The kids were great helpers and they turned out so good (for being gluten free/dairy free, of course). I got the recipe from The Spunky Coconut Cookbook.
...and for my first giveaway! I am giving away a copy of Simple Food for Busy Families by Jeannette Bessinger and Tracee Yablon-Brenner. This is a great book for helping a family switch from a standard american diet to a whole foods diet. It helps parents know what the best choices are for their families health and well-being. At the end it gives very simple recipes that are easy to throw together - perfect! This book is chock full of wonderful information.
