Soak the lentils for at least 6 hours, pour, rinse and drain. Add the same amount of fresh water (i.e. 100g of dried lentils, then add 100ml of water) to the lentils and puree until smooth in a blender. Wash and clean the vegetables and cut them into very small cubes or grate them.Add two thirds of the vegetables to the lentil mixture, season well and mix with parsley. Fry the lentil mixture as small patties in coconut oil to a golden brown. Simply prepare the remaining vegetables as a salad or vegetable side-dish.
Tip: These mini-patties can also be prepared beforehand and eaten cold. Therefore, they are ideal as a “meal on the go”.
Do you struggle with how to take your lunch to work? Maybe if you have a really cool lunchbox or lunchbag, you will enjoy packing your metabolic balance meal to go. Here are a few new options for packing your second meal of the day.
Metabolic balance loves to share information on how you can eat healthier. If you are taking salads to work, here are a few ways that you can take a salad to the office in style.
Iris Lunch boxes. I have two of these with different coloured polka dots. They don’t look like a lunch box which is great. Everything inside the bag is insulated and the plastic containers wash easily.
These metal boxes work great for salads but don’t put anything too wet inside. The boxes have a little rubber sealant between the metal cover and the box but I wouldn’t depend on it to keep liquid from coming out when the box is being thrown around in your bag.
