I love trying new recipes! If you have been reading the blog for awhile you probably know that I’m a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to my eating patterns. Sometimes this makes trying new things hard but it’s something I’m working on. One reason I really want to work on this is because I know that it’s better for your body to eat a wide variety of foods to get different nutrients.
This weekend I finally got around to trying another recipe. This Red Lentil and Butternut Squash soup had caught my eye right away as it has some of my favorite flavors and with her descriptions of the health benefits I was sold.
I have had a bowl of this for dinner every night this week. It’s really satisfying and I really like the flavor combinations. I think next time I will add a little more vegetable broth as it got quite thick in the fridge but its still good thick. I wish I had more leftover naan to dip into it.
I’m looking forward to trying a few more new recipes soon. With plans of increasing the intensity and distance of my runs I’m going to try to be more aware about fueling with proper food. I actually gained weight last spring when I trained for a half as I was hungry all the time. I’m hoping to find foods that will help keep me feeling full without overeating all I just ran off.
Whats a good recipe you have tried recently?
Do you find that working out more makes you extra hungry?
