To be honest, I don’t follow any particular diet. I’ve tried to before, but I need to find some joy in what I eat. Sorry but I love potatoes and tomatoes too much to ever give them up!
But as it just so happens, I do love a lot of foods that are said to have beneficial properties, especially spices.
I made some lentil and carrot soup last night. I didn’t follow a recipe but here’s what I roughly did.
Boiled some lentils until they were soft, drained the water, added more water and some chicken broth. Then I chopped up some carrots and added them in. In a small pan I sautéed some onions and garlic in butter then dumped them in the pot.
The spices are what makes it so good. I added ground ginger, turmeric and yellow curry powder. I have read that all of these are good for my health so I get pretty heavy handed. Oh and then I added some chilli powder. And then a touch of cinnamon which is also really good for yah. And then a bit of brown sugar for a little bit of sweetness. And then some Tapateo hot sauce just for shits and giggles.
It’s a really good soup that eats like a meal. I find lentils to be a lot easier on my tum than beans are, and don’t have the same unpleasant side affects.
They’re also pretty cheap!
