PIP Foods, an iPad, and the Gym (not wanting to)

Many people have asked about the lentil burger recipe. So here it is!

Dress it up however you like! It would be fab with avocado, greens, tomato, red onion....mmmmm.

First, add 1 bag of lentils (1lb) to 5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Simmer until soft.

Chop in food processor:

1 carrot
1 onion
1-2 cloves garlic (optional)

Put 1 tbsp oil (I used walnut oil, but use any healthy kind you like) in frying pan, and add the chopped (almost pureed, but still chunky) carrot, onion, garlic.

Wash 1 container of your favorite kind of mushrooms, and then add to food processor. Chop till they’re in tiny bits. Then dump them in with the carrot and onion.

After about 5 minutes, dump the carrot, onion, garlic, and mushrooms into a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup pureed tofu or pureed soaked cashews (I used cashews). Add 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs (I used gluten free the first time and skipped it the second time).


1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
juice of half a lemon

Mix, and then add drained lentils. Put in the fridge (or freezer till it is cool enough—easier to work with). Make burgers!

Other Personal Improvement Plan (PIP) friendly foods I’ve eaten today:

Swamp Thing Smoothie---spinach, romaine, acai puree, water, and stevia. Why the pillow pet? Because it cracks me up to see Matthew's reaction when he sees these sludge-y smoothies. I paid him to try one once and he said it was ok, but on second sip, his gag reflex got him...I should post that video. It's super funny!
I'm a sucker for things like this in the store---three types of organic kale next to each other? I'll take one of each!
The kacinto kale ( I think it's dinosaur kale?) is great---you can use the whole thing because it has eater-friendly stalks. I used coconut oil, and added turmeric, dulse, kelp, herbamere, and nutritional yeast. Yum!
More of this. I may eat this everyday until I hate it! A few people asked---I did it in the vitamix, but it would work in the food processor too. May have to scrape the sides once or twice. Today I added half a scoop of vanilla sunwarrior protein to 2 avocados, several drops (like 2 droppers full) of stevia, and 1-2 tbsp pure cocoa (cacao) powder. I'm in love, and it's totally sugar free so it fits in with PIP 🙂

No coffee again today!

I did a few polls in class today with the texting thing—and 17 out of 22 participated. I call that a moderate success. I ran into a roadblock with the texting scavenger hunt…so I need to work on that one. I’m hoping to still do it at some point, but I really don’t want to pay for a subscription since I’ll have such limited use.

I used the “Do it not wanting to” technique twice today, and it worked so well. First, when I didn’t want a green smoothie, and second when I wanted to play on my new iPad instead of going to the gym. I channeled my mom’s voice saying, “Do it not wanting to!” …and I just did it. And it was no big deal. And I love my new gym. I’m super close to taking a body pump class, but I’m slightly scared—any opinions? I’m pretty tough, but not sure I’m in that kind of shape!

A thought on Pre-PIP Planning: Usually I go all out and try to be extreme and get huge results really fast. Sometimes it works, but the times in my life when I’ve taken the “slow and steady wins the race” approach are the times when I’ve actually sustained the changes. It makes sense—when I’ve changed unintentionally, it happened in small steps and gradually, so I feel like changing intentionally in the same way might work best. My PIP is just a way to focus what I want, clean things up, and help me stay motivated to make good choices. My work plate is full—I need to be as healthy as I can so I can do all of it without burning out…and now I have the iPad to assist me in everything!

Oh—and I’m not sure what to make of THIS!

In the mail today---I think I have quite a few years before I need it!

How was your day? Did you eat/drink anything green?

Have you tried peanut flour? Maryann is having a giveaway for peanut flour (which will soon be discontinued!).
