Rice over Lentils

13405102_1168776779833090_300747973_oAnother cheat recipe! Always handy after a busy day, when you don’t feel like cooking that day or if you’re working out and you need a quick healthy meal. If you’d eat it with brown rice, this one should be a good one before or after a good sweaty work out. Because of the high protein levels in lentils and the carbs in rice. If you know you’re going to be in a rush, you can even make the rice in advance, so you only have to warm it up. Amy’s Kitchen is a lovely brand, as the vegetables in the soup are organic and there is no sugar or other crap. Not all the soups are vegan btw, so make sure you check the ingredient list before buying. This lentil version is definitely my favourite, but the ‘Rustic Italian Vegetable’ one is also a very nice one. Not sure if that will be nice with rice as I’ve never tried it, but you can also eat only the soup of course and serve some pita bread on the side. Yum!
