Everything I ate today was boring. I had a banana, blackberries and rye bread for breakfast, an orange as a snack, a Pure bar and a salad for lunch, then some baby carrots and a few sips of kombucha. I felt very weird all day - my allergies are causing migranes which are in turn causing nausea and I went back and forth between intense hunger and not wanting to eat anything.
But when I got home I was really hungry. I had plans to eat leftover salad and soup but figured they could wait. I used up some leftover cooked lentils instead to make a lentil salad.
This is cooked brown lentils, chopped carrot, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and celery topped with some Trader Joe's pineapple salsa I had in the fridge. This was surprisingly good. The salsa was a little sweet, so I added hot sauce (also to help with congestion) and it really hit the spot. I can actually see myself deliberately making this again, perhaps with the addition of chopped onion, as opposed to a last ditch leftover lentil effort.
Any surprise leftovers triumphs in your kitchens lately?
