Dhal- I love dhal!

One of my favorite things to eat for breakfast, snack and dinner- dhal. It’s yellow (or green) split peas.

Natasha, one of my long-time school friends, blogged the recipe here. It’s delicious, gluten-free, dairy free and very nutritious and filling- an excellent source of protein, iron, fiber, antioxidants and vitamin E; say goodbye to brain fog! Plus it’s pretty cheap and easy to make!

You can eat it by itself like a soup, with gluten-free naan/puri or even with green veggies (I like to eat it with sauteed kale. Because what *doesn’t* go with kale?) Try it- you’ll love it! ❤

I’ll show her!!*

Years later, I’m pregnant and craving dhal and I didn’t know how…
