NEW YEAR, NEW ME! Lose Weight With This Secret Ingredient!

Lentil and Marsala sauce

Hi DivaGals! It’s Transformation Tuesday and we’re all about having our best body yet!

Our resident apartment gourmet Luxury Gal has uncovered a weight loss secret. Here’s her story!

I had a few containers of lentils in fridge. Lentils are a rich source of numerous essential nutrients, particularly dietary fiber and protein. Plus, one cooked cup is only about 230 calories. I decided to get creative and came up with a super easy recipe.

It tastes great, and I realized after a half cup serving with salad and a small serving of animal protein I was completely full and could NOT go for seconds. That makes lentils a great weight loss secret.

So what’s my filling delicious recipe? See below!

Saute one chopped onion.

Throw in dashes of turmeric, cumin, curry and fresh herbs.

Add 3 cups pre-soaked (softened) lentils.

Pour in one jar of Masala – I like Trader Joe’s Masala Simmer sauce.

Simmer, stir, cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Serve with brown rice and a salad.

You can add a animal protein if you like, but lentils have the second-highest ratio of protein per calorie of any legume, which makes it a perfect meat substitute.

Enjoy!
