Lentils & Feta Salad

BONEfully yours, Lentils & Feta Salad

The wonderful Susan is hosting a meaningful food event campaigning against Osteoporosis thru Beautiful Bones. She wants us to recall that women have high risk of developing osteoporosis and we should take precautions at all ages.

I believe that this is a worthy cause and so I concocted a high protein and calcium recipe. I am not really a dietitian but I know that lentils have high nutritional value and health benefits for their protein and fiber content. Cheese is very important too in providing the calcium that we need to have stronger bones that is if we have aversion for milk. Before I met my husband I used to hate drinking milk and eating cheeses (that probably explain my height J). As the saying goes, “when in France do as the French do”, I eat slowly, I savor each meal and most importantly I eat lots of cheese. I think there is no secret to a healthy long life but good diet, exercise, healthy living and lots of happy thoughts.


I am sending over this photo too to Click, my favorite monthly photo event spearheaded by Jai and Bee of Jugalbandi. This month's theme are beans & lentils.


Lentil & Feta Cheese Salad
2 to 3 endives washed and cut

Oh, thank you Dhanggit! Lentils are a staple in our house--I love them in everything from soups to salads. So I know I'll love this dish, especially since it has sweet beets and spicy arugula (two of my faves). Eating healthy can be delicious as you clearly show.

Cheers,
Susan

i haven't tried cooking lentils but i like it. This really look and sounds good.
By reading the recipe, i could taste it.You're really a chef.

Ps: parang halaan ata yon coque sa tagalog, can't remember. i agree with you it's really good with pasta and soup.
I do it with roquefort sauce, you should try itlike what i do with mussel.
At kung may time ka.baka gusto mong magbakasyon dito.
