Nutrition for Runners: Lentil-Butternut Squash Curry

imageTonight’s meal is a new one we tried tonight. It you are vegetarian or just looking for a meatless meal it is a great option.

It has the benefit of being a crockpot meal so it cooks all day and is ready when you get home from work. All we had to do after work was make some rice and dinner was ready to go.

The use of lentils in this recipe makes a particularly healthy one Since they are a good source of potassium and lean protein, among other benefits. The timing of this one is also good since 2016 is International Year of Pulses.
