What I Ate Wednesday.... err... Tuesday

Woah! It's been hella long since I've done a WIAW! Like, over a month long. Crazzzy!!! It must be my lucky day, because it's back!!! I actually remembered to snap pics of everything I had yesterday. Miracle! Without further rambling... here's my What I Ate Wednesday... er... What I Ate Tuesday... Whatever.
A co-worker brought in muffins! Too good to pass on. YUM! Coffee and water on the side.
Homemade sausage and lentil soup (oh, and an apple, a piece of bread and water on the side). SOOO good. And, pretty easy.
Sausage and Lentil Soup:
-1 pound lentils
-Lots of veggies (I used 1 onion, 1 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, ~4 celery stalks, ~4 carrots)
-2 cans diced tomatoes
-1 pound sausage (I used extra lean spicy turkey sausage)
-Spices (~1 tsp each: oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, thyme, pepper, salt)
-Some EVOO
-6ish cups chicken broth
Cook sausage in EVOO til done. Meanwhile, cover lentils with boiling water in bowl to soak for ~15 minutes. When sausage is done, add veggies and spices and cook for ~15 minutes. Add lentils, tomatoes, and chicken broth. Cook for ~90 minutes, stirring often and adding more broth or water to desired consistency.
It makes a TON and is sooooo good and SOOO good for you! LOADED with veggies and lentils and some extra protein from the sausage. It's delicious. I'm having it everyday this week for lunch and there's still a freaking shit ton left. LOVE.
What I didn't love? Spilling it on my pants. Doh!
Nothing super exciting. Pasta with jarred sauce and some goat cheese with a side of broccoli and califlower. Easy. Quick. Yummy.
Later that night I also had some homemade trail mix (aka: mini marshmellows, chocolate chips, raisins, almonds).
The soup was definitely the highlight of the day. Seriously. It might not sound great, but it is delicious. So delicious, in fact, that I'm having it again for lunch today. And tomorrow. And Friday. :)
