Then head to the market ASAP!

Lentils are a fabulous alternative to meat, as well as packed with protein and essential vitamins!

This by far is one of my best creations which your family will devour!

The ingredients you will need are as follows:
*1 small Organic onion chopped
*2 cloves of minced Organic garlic
*2 boxes of Organic Vegetable Broth
*1 can of Organic Tomato Paste
*1 package of Trader Joes cooked French Lentils, OR 2 cans of cooked lentils
* 1/2 cup of Organic parsley chopped
*1 small bag OR box of Organic baby spinach chopped
*1 package of Organic peeled butternut squash
*4 Organic carrots peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
*1 of each of the following Organic celery root, rutabaga peeled and turnips cut into 1-2 inch pieces
*Small piece of a parmesan rind
*4 tbs of Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil
*Sea salt & pepper to taste
*Pinch of sugar
*Grated Parmesan cheese
*Crusty bread

Directions:
1.) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. On a cookie sheet add carrots, celery root, rutabaga, turnips & butternut squash, drizzle with 2 tbs of olive oil, then sprinkle with sea salt. Roast the vegetables for 10 min, toss then roast for an additional 10 minutes.

2.) In the meantime, add 2 tbs of olive oil to a large pot heat for 2 minutes in a medium flame. Next add onions, garlic & sprinkle with a pinch of sugar until golden brown for about 6-8 minutes stirring occasionally.

3.) Afterwards add the lentils & tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes.

4.) Slowly pour the vegetable stock, parmesan rind, & root vegetables, then stir and cook until boiling. Cook for an additional 15 minutes.

5.) Next stir in spinach, parsley and cook for 5 minutes and season with salt & pepper.

Serve with crusty bread and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. (Our children like shredded fresh mozzarella on top.). ~Enjoy!

Want my fab tip for hats, gloves & scarfs that will make your morning a breeze?

image

Then pick up a fabric shoe organizer at Bed Bath & Beyond!

Mornings can be crazy in our home heading out for school, as is in many households.

Whether your live in an apartment or home, getting winter accessories can be a challenge until now!

Simply hang this organizer behind the door of your choice, roll scarves, fold gloves then place in hats making sets! ~Best tip ever!

I did this for our family and it makes getting ready one step easier!

An important factor is that children can be more independent getting ready in the morning minus the battle!

Getting the kids involved as early as age two, sorting and matching which is a great task to work on.

Just leave coats, shoes & backpacks near the door to make your morning routine run more smoothly. ~Enjoy!
