Lentil Masala Soup ~ Meatless Monday

 

Meatless Monday! I always try to go a day without eating meat regardless if it’s a Monday. Eliminating meat from your day allows you to opt for proteins that are not found in animal products. There are plenty vegetarian options like eggs, cheese, yogurt, nuts, seeds, tempeh, legumes and lentils.

 

 

Lentils and legumes are a good source of protein and an excellent source of fiber! You miss out on fiber when you only eat protein from animals. Fiber helps us stay full for longer periods of time, maintains a healthy digestive tract by moving things along and keeping you regular.

 

 

This soup is rich with cancer-fighting turmeric powder. Combined with a pinch of black pepper increases the absorbability by 1000%! With your first bite, your tastebuds explode with excitement from the abundance of flavour, you will not miss the meat in this meal! Leftovers can be stored in the freezer for a later day (if there is any).
