Dry Goods

I love to cook with legumes and whole grains. They are inexpensive and many types have a high enough protein content that you’ll save even more money on your grocery budget when you aren’t buying meat for every meal of the week. Barley, Split Peas, Lentils and flax are on the menu for this week. Google any one of those items and you will be amazed by the nutrition content in these powerhouse foods.

For those of you wary of split pea soup- this is truly yummy. Both my husband and toddler love it. The fennel adds a nice flavor that really sets it apart from your run of the mill split pea soup. The Sicilian Lentils are technically a sauce the Italians would serve over pasta. If you like tomatoes, you will enjoy this on its own.
