Easy healthy lunch idea: Lentils and whole flour pasta

This is a really easy and quick to prepare lunch, that can pretty much be tailored on your taste through spices and seeds at your choice. It can be a very good lunch option as part of your healthy eating habits.

Lentils and whole flour pasta: I have mixed half lentils flour pasta with half whole wheat flour pasta. This is a nice mix as the proteins of legumes like lentils complement with wheat protein from an aminoacidic standpoint.

Olive oil, turmeric and black pepper: I seasoned the pasta with extra virgin olive oil and with a bit of turmeric and black pepper. Turmeric contains curcumin, which has many health benefits including reducing inflammation. Adding black pepper, improves the bioavailability of curcumin, that’s why it’s always a good idea to add a bit of pepper when using turmeric.

Hemp and sunflower seeds: these adds proteins to the dish and healthy unsaturated fats, including omega 3. They also add a nice nutty taste and a pleasant crunchiness.

Leftover steamed carrots and broccoli: these were in the fridge from the dinner of the day before, so why not adding them 🙂

Orange juice with water kefir and ginger: as an extra healthy boost I have drank a mix of one freshly pressed orange with my home made water kefir and a bit of powdered ginger.

Chocolate and espresso: as I often do, I have completed my meal with a small piece of dark gourmet chocolate and an espresso
