Lentil Curry

I have been having an urge to eat less meat. It really helps my digestion, and for me, feeling light. I loosely use the Blood Type Diet as a guide, which in my case says to eat less meat.

The Blood Type Diet is a diet, where certain foods are suggested for particular blood types. I really think it has some bearing, but it could be a placebo effect. I mean when the guide tells me to eat more vegetables and less meat, it is nothing new.

One thing I did discover though is I don’t digest cheese (and alcohol boooo!) well. However, I am never giving that up, especially when I see cheese everyday. No siree.

To counteract the cheese “samples” I take at work, I compensate with a vegan meal at night. It tasted really good. I wish my pictures would capture how delicious it is. Unfortunately, I cook when I get home from work; there is little natural light at that point.

With further Ado, give this recipe a try.
