LID Day 3: Lentil Barley Stew, Spaghetti Sauce, and Lemon-Garlic Salad Dressing

It’s Day 3 of LID and I feel like I’m getting the hang of things. I have heard such terrible things about this diet, but it’s really not that bad. Of course, we tend to eat very clean anyway and I cook 99% of our meals. We rarely eat at restaurants and never eat fast food. It’s not a huge change.

What I ate today:
Breakfast: 1 slice of leftover Beer Bread (from yesterday) toasted and topped with grape jelly and coffee with non-dairy creamer
Lunch: Lentil and Barley Stew
Dinner: Spaghetti with Spaghetti Sauce and a tossed salad with Lemon-Garlic Salad Dressing
Snack: Fresh strawberries

Products I used today:
Quaker’s Quick Barley
Progresso Unsalted Chicken Broth
Furmano’s Unsalted Crushed Tomatoes
Hunt’s Tomato Paste (contains no salt)

    That looks wonderful! I just made Soupe à l’oignon, and am looking for other soup ideas to combat the unseasonably cold weather. I suppose it’s the winter equivalent of making lemonade. 🙂
