'Rescue Remedy' Lentil Pot

I'm giving my fitness routine a bit of a kick.

Every so often in life, you need a kick start or a change of direction, whether it be your diet, your hobbies or even something as simple as your journey to work or the chair you choose to sit in front of the TV. It's easy to get stuck in a routine that could benefit from a little freshening up from time to time.

I'm trying out a few new classes at the gym, and in addition I've started weekly training with a PT to give me a sense of structure to my workout week. We'll see how it progresses.... I'll report back.  After my first session my muscles were super sore...obviously in need of that little shake up!

So, this meal was a quick 'throw it together' protein packed rescue remedy for sore muscles. Pretty much all the ingredients are renown natural anti-inflammatories and so made for a super healthy antidote to pep me up! The fact it took little more than 5 minutes to cook up is always a bonus.
