Good morning! I hope that you're enjoying the beautiful sun streaming in through your windows and have an opportunity to let that delicious vitamin D soak into your body at some point today.
Last Thursday, as a few of us were leaving PiYo, we were talking about doing a little recipe swap in order to spice up our weekly menu. I'm thinking that we're probably all in the same boat. If each of us shares one of our favorite healthy recipes, then we'll have a pretty rockin' collection!
Here's one of my favorite recipes:
SoulShine Schedule for this week:

Can't wait to see you this week in class and/or in your session. Make a plan now to get in some kind of movement every single day this week! I dare you.
Update with all of our delicious recipes that I've collected this past week:
Curried Lentil and Sweet Potato Soup (thick and good with bread or basmati rice)
2 T vegetable oil or coconut oil
1 large red onion diced
6-7 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup peeled and minced ginger
1.5 T curry powder
1 hot chili pepper (dried or fresh, can use red chili flakes)
1 cup diced carrot
1 cup sweet red bell pepper
5 cups diced sweet potato
1 can coconut milk (14 oz)
2 cups dried red lentils
8 cups vegetable stock
cilantro for garnish
Saute onion, garlic and ginger in oil for 5 minutes. Add curry, pepper, carrots, bell pepper and potatoes. Saute for 5-10 minutes.
Add coco milk, lentils and vegetable stock. Simmer, covered for approximately 45 minutes; maybe 50!
Serve with lime wedges and cilantro for individual garnish.
Make rice (any kind you like - make ahead for fast and easy prep or make extra at dinner so you can have this for breakfast or lunch the next day!)
Winter Greens - baby kale, spinach etc...anything green and leafy that can warm and wilt
If you want a little extra protein, you can add some shredded cheddar or a cheese of your choice.
Top with some soy sauce or Braggs and enjoy!
You can jazz it up with some Sriracha or other veggies of your choice - if you are really wanting some extra fill, you can add some grilled or sautéed meat.
Fast, easy, yummy and adaptable.
