Straight from the recipe section of the organic grocer’s monthly magazine.

This recipe is simple yet elegant. The original recipe called for blue cheese but I opted for goat cheese instead.


Lentil Salad with Goat Cheese and Apple

4 servings

Ready in 30 minutes

  • 250 grams (just over 1 cup) Puy lentils
  • 3 Tbsp. walnut oil
  • 4 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 red apple
  • lettuce, I used lamb’s lettuce
  • 80 grams goat cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cook the lentils according to package instructions. Strain and cool cooked lentils. Mix together the walnut oil and lemon juice. Set aside 2 Tbsp of dressing and mix the remaining amount into the cooled lentils along with salt to taste.
  2. Core the apple and then slice into very thin ribbons. Cover the apple slices in the remaining dressing.
  3. Serve the lentils on the lettuce. Top with the apple ribbons and crumbled goat cheese.


Good enough to eat for lunch again tomorrow.

Yesterday’s riveting tale of mistaken identity would have gripped  Shakespeare’s interest.

He is certainly known for things or people not being as they seem. Well, my juicer was not what I expected, but after the great let down, I decided to bite the bullet and buy a new juicer to calm my mind and infuse my body with vitamins.

Unfortunately, I had to call the juice party off yesterday and reschedule for today. Due to busy end-of-term schedules, my party for 6 turned into a party for 2. We still had a good time, sipping the juice of carrots, apples, and ginger. Even while we were talking, my mind was back in the kitchen thinking up my next juice.

I think I’m going to become a juice junky.

Although I didn’t capture the first juice. Here’s the second. Not quite the baby’s first breath, but it will do.

Parsley, celery, lemon, cucumber, apple and lamb’s lettuce

Greens galore!

So, now that I have that off my chest, let’s see what else I ate today! It takes a really special person to find interest in what someone else ate. We’re weird, I know.

After School Snack

Leftover pimped out frozen pizza from dinner yesterday. Similar to the pizza here, but this time with tomatoes, mushrooms, black olives, goat’s cheese, and tons of Italian seasoning.


Dinner was had on the run between another dentist’s appointment (my TMJ night guard is nearly ready) and my school’s annual general meeting. I went to the best falafel place I know and quickly enjoyed the best thing €2.50 can buy. Sadly, I didn’t have my camera.

What did I do beside eat today, you may ask… well…. I organized the taxi to take me to the airport, packed my bags, cleaned the apartment, and did laundry. This was all after work, but before my appointment and the meeting back at school. I’m absolutely wiped out. I’ll be thankful for the 13 hours of traveling.

One more day of school, then I’m off to the USA to see my family and friends! Can you tell I’m a little excited? I can’t wait!

If you don’t hear from me for a few days, don’t worry, I’m just living it up with the one’s I love!
