I have continued to stay on my healthy life plan. I was 240 pounds and have been maintaining my weight at 155 for 9 years. I love to share my recipes as I need taste and flavor in my food and keeping the calories down. I still have my steak and potato as my reward on a date out. I hope to post more of my recipes as I know weight loss is not easy, but when you find someone that has been there, its so wonderful. I kayak, hike now and I never went to the gym during my weight loss. You will get your energy back as you lose your weight. Love and living a good life.

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the lentils in boiling water until al dente, about 25 min.
  2. In a large bowl add Lite Italian dressing, lemon zest, toasted almonds, salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Add the cooked French green lentils, white cannellini beans, thinly sliced red onions, cut Arugula and mix well. This is a low calorie salad and very filling.
