How was everyone’s weekend?
Mine was super relaxing, filled with birthdays, brunches and hikes out into the desert to see the bloom of all the amazing desert flowers.
J caught the flu all week and finally felt some sinus relief today after the hike. I have been feeling so bad for him, he was legit down for the count the whole week. I am so surprised I didn’t catch it!
We had the essential oil diffuser on 24/7 to help relieve sinus pressure and help him relax.
Told you guys last week, the diffuser is life changing!
Because J had been so congested and wasn’t able to eat all week, on Saturday I made him a hearty Red Lentil, Butternut Squash and Coconut Curry. We figured the curry would be easy to digest and the spices would help release some of the congestion he had.
The lentils provided filling protein while the Butternut Squash provided the vegetable and silky texture to the curry. The coconut made the sauce rich and helped cut some of the spice.
To help cut the heat a little more (I made it a tad too spicy…perfect for me not so much for him), I added a dollop of yogurt on to Justin’s and sprinkled on fresh cilantro.
I feel like cilantro makes everything better. Gives food a freshness and bite!
Anyways, this curry is delicious! Its super easy to make and keeps you full without having to use meat as the star.
Simply temper all your spices in hot oil, add aromatic, lentils and veggies of your choice, and boom! A healthy detox meal that tastes amazing and keeps you satisfied!
I have been looking to make more dishes with lentils…red, green, brown, whatever, so let me know of your favorite recipes! Always love a new recipe.
