It’s been a looong time since I’ve written a blog post and thought I’d check in to say hello and welcome back. It’s actually been year and in that year
I graduated with my Master’s of Public Health Degree, started a new job, and launched a new website: www.edenicwellness.com. I’m so excited about the various changes that are happening, even when life presents challenges that require me to grow beyond my expectations. It’s a funny thing about growth… sometimes it’s not so comfortable. In fact, change can be DOWNRIGHT painful at times. After all, expanding one’s mind and spirit to receive abundance and other life lessons can feel like a beginner student in an advanced yoga class!
I find in those moments of growth that I long for comfort to ease any discomfort that may along with change. Comfort in the form of a warm embrace, a chat with a long-time friend, or a delicious meal when I’m hungry. There was a time when I reached for a chocolate bar or pasta to soothe my nerves, but now I’ve found some other tasty delights to comfort my soul. Stay tuned to see one of my favorite Comfort for the Soul recipes- Red Lentil Soup!
It's perfect for the remaining chilly days of winter as we welcome in the spring.
1 cup red lentils, well rinsed
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 large onion (or one small), chopped
1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
3 TBSP of Bragg's Aminos (or to taste)
sea salt to taste
Place the lentil and water in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil. Be sure to stir. After 5-7 minutes, bring lentils down to medium- low. Stir in the onions and cook on medium-low until cooked, about 15 minutes or desired consistency of soup. Add sea salt, Bragg's Aminos, and nutritional yeast.
Serve with rice or a salad. Serves 3-4.
