Since we had a big ol’ pot of lentils I decided we needed to make something lentil-centric. I got inspiration from Giada, but ended up doing my own thing. dscn6938 Loafing around 

Lentil Loaf

I mixed :

2 cups lentils (cooked)

1 cup brown rice (cooked)

1 cup spinach (cooked)

Big handful shredded cheese (whatever you like)

2 eggs

1/2 can diced tomatoes

salt/pepper/garlic/season salt

This is what I did:

Cook a bunch of raw spinach in TJ’s ff vinagarette. Then, chop it up. Beat egg. Mix together all ingredients, except egg, and season to your preference. You can taste it at this point and add more seasonings to your liking, but don’t do that after you add the raw egg. Add egg. Mix together and put in a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour or until set. My lentil loaf was very moist and took an extra 20 minutes. Let set and enjoy!dscn6863 Loafing around

I really need to eat from a plate. If I don’t eat real meals I just keep eating, it’s like my brain or stomach doesn’t  realize I ate.dscn6852 Loafing arounddscn69851 Loafing around (This isn’t everything.)

I joke that I have an anxiety disorder, but seriously I need to chill out. I did 20 minutes of yoga today and just felt so much better after. I think I would be really great for my mind and body if I did yoga everyday. I need it, and it’s better than a  pill, right? I may make a commitment to this very soon…It may be better than therapy!
