Lunch recipe

I've visited with more than one person about healthy quick lunch ideas.  Found one I liked today and thought I would share.  It came from one of my favorite nutrition sources, the Nutrition Action Health Letter.  I think my nutriton professor recommended this in about my first week of grad school.  They give quick, clear advice from well done studies, have great recipes, and do a great break down and comparison of food products out there to help people make better choices.  Anyhow, just thought I'd throw that recommendation out there :)

Roasted Butternut Squash and Lentils
Cook 1 cup lentils for approximately 20 minutes.
Cube butternut squash and drizzle with olive oil.  Roast at 375 for 20 minutes.
Mix together 2 T olive oil, 2 T dijon mustard, 1 T red wine vinegar, 2 T minced red onion, 1 tsp honey, salt and pepper.
Combine cooked lentils, squash and dressing.  Top with walnuts.

Yummy, healthy, and quick lunch!

I've been catching up on your blog this afternoon, which is making me think of you and your family and your beautiful, messy life. I love your honesty and I love that you take pictures of the mess. I am finding eucharisteo, too, in so many ways these days. Thank you for your words. They've touched my heart today.
