Here we go with my first recipe to share. My roommate and I along with a few other people in my life have been on this health journey which includes trying to reduce the amount me meat (specifically red meat, which happens to probably be one of my love languages!) in our regular diet. Cue a recipe for Meatless Monday!

I had this for dinner last night – and packed up the leftovers for lunch today – and I was able to get my protein fix through the lentils that I needed after my workout along with some great veggies. You could add in or substitute the lentils for grilled chicken or another protein as I am sure it would be very tasty! The vinaigrette was delicious, however, it may be acidic for some and you should be able to adjust ingredients to fit your palate.
Not a difficult one and easy to throw together when you have a lot to get done in an evening. Hope you all have a great day :).
