A dinner meal plan featuring quinoa!
Here’s this week’s lineup! The feature food is lentils!
There are sooo many things to love about lentils!
- They’re packed full of fibre, iron, folate, potassium, protein, and are low on the GI index, which means they don’t spike the blood sugar!
- They’re economical! A serving of lentils (when cooked from dry) is about $0.15.
- They’re good for the gut! Recent research shows that the best way to support the health of your gut is to eat a variety (30+) of plant foods each week. Choosing lentils as your protein source for a meal helps to get you to that weekly goal!
KITCHEN TIP: Split lentils are small enough they don’t need to be soaked before cooking!

This Week’s Lineup!
Happy cooking 🙂
Serve the meatballs on top of rice alongside a salad. I’ve included a salad kit and rice in the grocery shopping list but feel free to plan to make your own salad, if you prefer!
