Her time at home is pretty limited, so she tries to stick to the healthiest and easiest recipes, as possible. As a pescatarian herself, Danielle needed to get creative with her diet.

She found that lentils are a wonderful super food, providing such nourishment from vitamins to minerals, to being a great source of fiber, potassium and folic acid, all which are essentials for heart health!

Recipe

Allison Pine

Here is Danielle's 3 step, 3 ingredient, 1 pot lentil soup recipe:

I make sure I have a box of chicken broth, you can even use vegetable broth, to cook the lentils in for extra nutrition and flavor, make sure you pay attention to the sodium level and choose a less sodium option to stay heart healthy...

One package of mirepoix, which is a chopped up mix of fresh carrots, onions and celery...

And of course a bag of lentils, usually a 16 oz bag...

First, you'll want to sauté the mirepoix in any cooking medium you choose,

I always cook with the always famous extra-virgin olive oil which is also heart healthy...

Then when you have sautéed your carrots onions and celery mix, you'll want to add your broth and lentils.

Bring everything to a boil and then lower the heat, cover and simmer for at least 45 minutes letting the lentils expand and soften, stir periodically and add about 1.5 to 2 cups of water if needed for more of a smooth and soup-like texture...

When the time has passed and you achieved the right consistency, (pictured in pot) you may take a taste and season accordingly if you like, (pepper, garlic powder, tumeric, etc...for this dish is very customizable)...

Serve and Enjoy!

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.
