Goddamn I love good lentil soup. The go to vegan feel good food for me when my skin is going crazy, my mind is going crazy, and my stomach is going crazy. I’ve been eating like S.H.I.T. the past week or two due to my laziness...and hey! This was just as easy and actually cheaper. I was going to go grab a bowl of fatty, heavy, (but so fuckin good) ramen for lunch, but decided on this instead. My body and mind are happy, and there’s always time for ramen later. I did indulge in an almond milk latte, and some bread with jams. Fat isn’t a bad thing, but, three bowls of ramen in a week might be pushing it. I’m not ever really concerned with overeating due to weight gain, but eating too much rich food can make me break out and throw my hormones out of balance. It’s all about finding your happy medium. Eat some home style food, even if you’re away from home! ☕️

Who’s meal planning for the week?
We’ve still got a pie pumpkin kicking around from Halloween, so this Indian Spiced Lentil & Pumpkin Soup is on the list!
It is so packed with flavour and so SO simple. There’s coconut milk AND peanut butter if you need more convincing.
If you make it with canned pumpkin, which is equally delish, it’s a full on pantry meal - meaning, if your life gets wild and mixed up and you can’t follow your meal plan this week (can we get an ‘amen’?) you can feel free to hold off for another week without worrying (and feeling guilty) about wasting food.
This season I am ALL about the lentil soup. I have bulked this bad boy up a bit after chatting with a chap from our group we have for reducing social isolation within the elderly- who mentioned he and his wife used to make the stock from a ham hock for their lentil soup 🍖 so I cooked the lentils with some free range pancetta (saving some to crisp up and delicately place on top after - then stuff in mouth like a hyena) and then I also added some left over free range chicken breast too to bulk it out, rather than having bread with it.... (just try not to eat all the freshly baked bread rolls that you made for the children’s lunch whilst you are waiting... like ‘a friend’ did 😳🐽) I have frozen half of this so I can treat myself another day - it is so packed with flavour it feels like you’ve had a proper hearty meal! #whifflepig#whifflewhileyoucookbook#lentilsoup#freerange#bread#greedy#tasty#socialisolation#yum#singleparent#singlemother#healthyfood
Golden curry lentil soup 💛🥕🌿 This is provably the most flavorful and delicious soup I’ve ever had...and I eat a lot of soup! 🙃 Packed with lentils, this dish is hearty enough to eat on its own, but we enjoyed it with a warm, crunchy whole-grain baguette. I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. Happy Saturday!

Warrm up the entire family with this yummy bowl of soup du jour!!! 🍜
@Regran_ed from @fromtheorangekitchen - The weather is getting colder and soup season is officially starting.
For this lentil soup, I used a lot of warm spices: cumin, paprika and coriander, and I finished it with an extra sprinkle of chopped cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice and couple of slices of spicy chili pepper.
One of the very few things I enjoy about the 🥶weather is having an excuse to make 🍲! Of course you can have soup any time of year if you’re like @jennamarbles 😁This is my favorite go-to I’ve been making for years: make it over the weekend and you have fast, easy lunches all week long😉 People automatically think chicken when they think of soup, but did you know 1.5 cups of lentils equals the same amount of protein as 3 oz chicken? But you get way more out of lentils that you can’t get from meat: dietary fiber, copper, phosphorus, and manganese👍🏼 So next time,help save a life, substitute lentils for meat🦃🐄🐖🐑🐓 #veganrecipes#soupseason#healthyrecipes#lentilsoup#thepowerofveggies
