Sausage and Lintel soup.

Ok this recipe is probably more fitting for the 3rd phase of the P90X due to the lintel beans. I looks and smells delicious so the family won't be disappointed. It's high in carbs and protein(lintel beans) but here it goes.

What you'll need

2 cups of Dried and washed lintels (I just use 1 pound bag)
1 pound Hot Italian Sausage(can substitute for veggie and/or mild)
1 28oz can of whole pealed tomatos
8 cups chicken broth(chicken bouillon cubes work too but way to much salt for me)
2 stalks of celery(diced)
1 carrot(diced)
1 large onion(chopped)(I use yellow)
2 cloves of garlic(crushed)
1tps salt(optional in my opinion but if you must have it..)
3/4tps black pepper
1/2tps crushed red pepper flakes
1/2tps oregano
1/2tps thyme
1/2tps fennel seeds
1 bay leaf
1tbsp oil(or a p90x alternative )

In a large sauce pan heat 1tbsp of oil and add your celery(diced), carrot(diced), onion(chopped) and garlic. Saute until tender.

Set the veggies aside and add the 1 pound of Italian sausage(removed from the casing) to the pan and cook until browned. Then drain all the fat and oil off of it.

Next in a large stock pot add your 8 cups of chicken broth, veggies, Italian sausage and then when adding your can of tomatoes crush them in your hands into the pot and then all the juice. Finally add your lentils into the pot along with all your seasonings.

Heat it all and bring it too a simmer and let it set for 40-45mins(I think it taste better if the lentils are more tender). Remove the Bay leaf. Then as a final touch, take about 1/3 of your soup and puree it in the blender and add it back too the pot.

Takes about 1 1/2 hours to prep and make. I like to serve it with stalks of celery since you normally can't buy just 2 stalks at a time, so you'll have extra.

Feel free to tweak the recipe as you like. So ideas:

Don't use oil to saute the veggies.
Don't add salt
Tweak the seasonings to taste
I personally add 2tps of crushed red peppers(I like it spicy)
Use veggie sausage or chicken sausage

Enjoy guys!

Recovery Drink Substitute?

I make a breakfast smoothie drink that seems to be a great substitute for the 'recovery drink' and it tastes awesome to boot!!

1/2 C Danon Light and Fit Vanilla Yogurt (approx 70 cal/cup)

1 to 1.5 scoops of EAS Vanilla Protein Powder (110 cal/scoop, 23g protein)

3/4 to 1 C frozen mixed berries (approx 50 cal / cup)

1 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (I prefer the Special Dark)

Fill Magic Bullet to the fill line with crystal light lemonade

Blend until smooth.

The drink provides a ton of protein from the yogurt and the powder. It also supplies a good amount of fibre and carbs from the fruit. As an added bonus, the Cocoa powder provides flavanoids and anti-oxidants.

I have made without the protein powder as well, but I am immediately hungry if I do not include it. This drink will fill you up and you can almost feel your body soak up what it needs when you drink it!! Enjoy!

Grilled chicken, HEB brand, cook on Forman grill 8oz.= 7 mins, 1/4 cup instant brown rice, boil in 1/4cp water 8-10 mins with cap full of low sodium kikkoman sauce for extra flavor. 3-4 fresh asparagus stalks steemed in microwave steaming bags from wal mart. takes about 5 minutes. Fast,convenient,healthy, and done in about 30 minutes. I also like to take about 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt,toss in a handful of grapes and call that dessert.

For more servings just multiply x's amt serving.

For all of you Old Boy Scouts and backpackers...

I make a tasty, protein/fiber rich, energy packed snack to eat at my desk in between lunch and dinner and before workouts. Like GORP, but P90 protein style.

Simple and EZ!

Mix:
1.A cup or so soy nuts (I get them at Target or Publix Supermarket), I also get Honey Roasted ones as a treat sometimes.

2. Approx 1/2 cup of Raisins (to taste)

In a seal-able container. Shake well. Enjoy!!!

1/4C of soy nuts is approx 100cals, and the raisins are about 60 cals for a 1/8C.

I usually keep some around the office for snack time, or when the birthday cake comes around.

Not so much a recipe as suggestions on how to prepare meals more efficiently. Instead of making chicken constantly either bake a whole chicken or turkey on Sunday. Then use the meat to make different meals throughout the week. E.g., baked a turkey and got enough meat out of it for dinner and two turkey salad lunches for both myself and my wife...included my kids eating for dinner as well.
