I'm someone who never thought I could eat Vegan and definitely didn't want to even think about trying something like lentils. But, the Ultimate Reset opened my eyes to SO may delicious options. I have NO intention of going vegan, but every once in a while, it's nice to give your body a break and... reset!
This recipe is a great go-to lunch or dinner with lots of protein, good carbs, and just tastes delicious! As with all recipes from the Ultimate Reset, this serves ONE. SO I multiply it (MEAL PREP) so I can have it multiple times while on the reset and while NOT on the Reset, I can use it as a meal with my family
