{menu ideas} healthy and hearty

grilled chicken, lentils and a light caesar salad by ann west

Moms in town and she is always inspires me to eat healthy. Her new kick is veggies in the morning on whole wheat toast. Ok I am not sure I am ready for that but I love how enthusiastic she is about eating well. See I am still learning by example from her!

Our first meal together was grilled chicken, lentils and a light ceasar salad. It was delicious and hearty. My youngest even exclaimed, "ohh I love lentils." If you can get your kids to try them... they will like them. I promise.

Here are the recipes for our dinner.


grilled chicken
we marinated this chicken in lemon olive oil and some rosemary, salt and pepper and grilled it.

caesar salad
heart of romaine and parm with a light dressing.
Mix 1/3 cup olive oil, juice of one lemon, garlic, 1 tsp anchovy paste, dash or 2 of worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to taste.

As our piggyback meal we are going to add some yummy spicy sausage to the lentils and serve them with a salad and some tortillas tonight!
