Just a Tuesday…Nothing to exciting to report. Breakfast was a repeat.
Lunch was Bean Balls with Brown Rice. Yum!
Snack was supposed to be an apple…
Plus there may have been a few handfuls of chocolate covered almonds. No self control at all today; the chocolate just kept finding it’s way into my mouth.
After work I did intervals on the treadmill. I was feeling less than energetic when I started, so I decided to do shorter intervals of running, but I also kept the walking intervals shorter. It felt like I was running more, but at the same time it felt easier. I did 30 minutes of intervals and a 10 minute walk to cool down.
Dinner – Indian Spiced Lentils & Chicken – was in the slow cooker. I was planning to steam some broccoli, but while I was on the treadmill I thought maybe I could throw it in the slow cooker and avoid another dirty pot.
So, when I got off the treadmill, I prepped the broccoli and threw it in the slow cooker. I went and had a shower, then came out to dinner. The broccoli was still a little crisp, I can live with that.
We also finished off the last of the Basmati Rice from Sunday night.
And dessert with mint tea:
Dinner was based on this recipe from A Year of Slow Cooking. I used two chicken breasts, but halved everything else in the recipe (actually I used a little less that 3 cups of chicken broth and no water). I thought that 2 cups of lentils would be a lot and if I wanted Husband to be happy, there would need to be a decent ratio of chicken to lentils. I added some fresh ginger and garam masala to the mix, and when we got home from work I added some light coconut milk (what was leftover from the can I opened on Sunday night).
Then, as I mentioned, I added the broccoli and served with Basmati Rice. I really enjoyed this dish. Husband had two servings and said it was “Spectacularly good.” How’s that for a review?
Husband has had quite the week – I fed him fish and lentils and he liked both. It might be time to feed him pizza or something; just so this doesn’t get too weird. :)
