Last night I made a lentils recipe (which is really good) and I posted it to the recipes thread. So that is an item that will be featured today. It has five superfoods: Lentils, tomatoes, onions, garlic and yogurt.

Breakfast:
Ultimate meal shake (sf), strawberries (sf), soy milk (sf) and kiwi (sf)

Snack:
Cottage cheese and yogurt (sf) with kiwi (sf)

Lunch:
Lentils (5 sf), brown rice (sf), eggplant with olive oil (sf) and garlic (sf)
Salad with romaine (sf), tomatoes (sf) and carrots (sf)

Snack:
Carrots (sf) with laughing cow cheese wedge

Snack 2:
Bean salad with 2 kinds of beans (2 sf), corn (sf), tomatoes (sf), lemon juice (sf), olive oil (sf), onions (sf) and cucumbers.

Dinner:
Lentils (5 sf), brown rice (sf) and maybe broccoli (sf)
Salad with romaine (sf), carrots (sf) and tomatoes (sf).

Snack:
Dark chocolate (sf)

Obviously I have repeats but today will be a lot of superfoods, 35 total. The lentils and bean salad are almost cheating

Your menu sounds yum! I like to roast asparagus, too but haven't tried the tomatoes so I'll have to do that. Re the asparagus, it's good w/ the drizzle of balsamic vinegar after it comes out of the oven.

Hope - you copied my lunch! I was at the store yesterday and lucked onto a pack of precooked shrimp for under $5! Enough for 2 lunches, esp on a salad. Yummmmmm. I love seafood.

I've heard that roasted tomatos are good, too, but haven't tried them. I did try brussel sprouts roast, and omg, they are sooo good. I know I love the asparagus, but then I like asparagus anyway you fix it! I'm more inclined to roast veggies in the winter.

I'm eating my snack of cottage cheese/blueberries/raspberries right now. I like it more towards room temp than straight from the fridge. BUt I have a new brand of cottage cheese, and lf rather than ff, and what a difference! It tastes way better to me! I usually add a spoonful of DH's full fat yogurt to cottage cheese - it seems to help the texture as well as the taste.

Will definitely try that! I have a bottle of balsalmic and the first time I tried it just a few weeks ago, I put it on some tomatoes and sprinkled with feta cheese. It was so good! So, you just drizzle a little on the asparagus huh? Will do! Oh, I forgot to take my parmesan cheese with me to work (started a new job last night!), so I ate them without it. Actually, my turkey, turkey drippings, rice, asparagus and tomatoes were all in one container that kinda got flipped around in my bag and mixed up. It was like a pretty darn good soup!
